April 2012

April started with Easter which is recorded in the previous post.  April 9th should have been our monthly mens' breakfast, but because it was a bank holiday it was decided to delay by one week until the 16th. 
On the 17th, (Tuesday) we hosted a visit from representatives of the Union Home Missions Committee.  We met at chapel where Susannah had prepared a tea for our members and the visitors.  After tea, we spent a time in prayer and discussion about out current events and future plans.  It was interesting to hear from members of other churches, and wehope that this will be the start of an ongoing relationship with these congregations. 
Thursday April 26th was the first supper club.  The menu was:  Onion and leek soup, Haddock Mornay with potatoes, glazed carrots and steamed asparagus, followed by table cream and tropical fruit.  The speaker was from the Edale Mountain Rescue Team.  In spite of a failure of his, the talk was enjoyable and informative.  A collection in support of their work raised over £80-00.
