October 2010

October started with the Harvest Thanksgiving and food festival weekend. The chapel was open all day Saturday October 2nd for tasting and recipe swapping of foods from around the world. Sunday there were two services, and at the morning service the latest addition to our church family was Christened. The harvest supper was held on the 9th October and the traditional meat pie and peas was followed by entertainment from Rev. Alan Hindmarch and his accordion.
The bible fellowship met on Tursdays 5th and 19th when we listened to recordings of addresses by Steve Brady, principal of Moorlands College. These were followed by discussion centred round the points raised by his theme.
During October the chapel was being decorated and all our services and meetings were held in the back room. A photograph of the finished job will be posted later.
A successful needlework day was held on 16th October and the Ladies' fellowship met on the 20th where the speaker talked about the work of the Woodland Trust.
Saturday 30th was a busy day when our festival of light commenced. The day was given over to making lanterns and "stained glass windows" in various patterns which were judged at the party held in the evening.
The Sunday saw services on a theme of Light at 10-30a.m. and 4-30p.m.
