February started with some seasonal weather! This meant that many of our congregation could not get to the chapel, although a few of us went to make sure that any visitors could be welcomed and advised of the circumstances.
The weather did not adversely affect our plans for the month, which included having our toilets re-modelled in order to make them more accessible. This was scheduled to take place over two weeks, starting on Feb. 6th. Accordingly we decided not to worship at Mayfield on !2th and 19th Feb. We arranged to meet with our friends at Philadelphia chapel in the city, where we were made very welcome.
The toilets were completed on schedule, and on budget! so we were able to return "home" for Sunday 26th.
Our Tuesday fellowship group also did not meet, but our Lent course started on Feb. 28th, and will continue to meet every week during Lent. This year we are following "The Way to Freedom", a course produced by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland.
