February 2014

An apology to our regular readers for the lack of information about what we have been doing.  Unfortunately, blogging had to take a back seat in view of all that has had to be done.  In addition to everything at church, Jonathan and Susannah have moved business.  The locals among you will know that the Castle Market in sheffield has succumbed to the ravages of time, and the final day's trading was on November 23rd.  The new market on The Moor opened on Monday November 25th.  These two simple sentences give no impression of the amount of work that was involved over the months, and is continuing as Susannah and Jonathan work full time, 6 days a week in the new market.  If you are interested in the business, please look at   If you are interested in the Moor Market, much more information is available at

Since early October we have held our annual festival of light on October 31st,

our annual barbecue and bonfire on November 2nd

and our Christmas events in December.
The Christmas events included:
Advent Carol service, "Five Courses and Carols", Carol singing with the Salvation Army Band, Christmas Carol service, Carol singing round the local area and a Christmas morning service.
January, as usual, was a quieter month, with our annual church party, the church meeting, and the bible fellowship restarted on the third Tuesday.
February was similarly quiet with just the regular meetings taking place.  A new innovation for 2014 is that the cleaning day is to be combined with a time of fellowship.  This will take place on the Thursday of the week following the bible fellowship on the first Tuesday of the month.
The real highlight of February was the completion of our decorations by the signwriter who relettered the text above the chapel front.
