July 2012

 July started with a trip into Derbyshire.  After the morning service on July 1st a number of us went along the snake Pass to a farm.  At this farm there is a long tradition of holding a love feast annually.
 The barn is transformed into a chapel for these events with a small, table, flower displays,cross and benches.
 The congregation gathers and once assembled the minister asks people to choose hymns and testimonies.  Volunteers brought their items and a token meal of spring water in a traditional loving cup, and fruit cake was distributed
 On the 9th of the month the mean's breakfast was held, and the bible fellowship met on the 3rd and 17th.  The Ladies' fellowship met on the 18th when our Pastor Susannah led the meeting.
On Saturday 21st, the Ladies fellowship held their annual coffee morning is support of Martin house Hospice.
Sunday 22nd was our annual pet and animal service, and a number of visitors brought their pets to church.  this event was held outside.
The monthly supper club was held on the 26th when we enjoyed a menu of:  dips and Tortilla chips, Sausage in Cumberland Sauce, Vegetarian Sausage in Cumberland Sauce, Roasted tomato & mushroom, Moroccan Couscous, Boiled New Potatoes, Peas, Sweetcorn; Yorkshire Curd Tart and Nectarine Slices.  The speaker spoke about  his lifetime of music.
The month ended with a needlework day on July 28th.
The bog garden continues to produce a variety of blooms.
