August, September and Early October 2013

The main event in August, was the family camp.  This was held over the weekend of 16th to 18th August.  The event was a great success, with several family groups sharing in the events of the weekend.
 Saturday evening was a barbecue which was shared with other members of the congregation.

 Sunday morning dawned bright and clear, and members of the congregation shared breakfast with the campers.
 Following breakfast, the campers led the morning worship for the rest of the congregation.
Over the months, all our regular activities continued unabated.  The Bible fellowship, supper clubs, Ladies' fellowship, Sunday worship all happened regularly.  The church meeting took place on the 9th of September,and many decisions about our future and ministry took place.  There will be a planning meeting in November to decide our programme for 2014.
On the 14th November we held our first quiz night which was a great success, this will probably be repeated in the future.
The 21st November was our annual McMillan coffee morning.  Because Susannah was elsewhere on the actual McMillan weekend, this was actually a week early.

Our annual Harvest festival was held on the 6th October.  Our visiting speaker brought us information on the work or Tear Fund in Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Our harvest donations were taken to help the work of St Wilfrid's project in the city centre.  They had specifically asked for dried and tinned foods.
