Many of you will have attended some of the special meetings at Furlong Road Methodist Church this weekend, as they celebrate moving into a different building. Our thoughts and prayers are with this church as they leave the old behind and look ahead to the new. God is faithful and walks with us in every chapter of our lives!

We have some dates coming up that need to be in the diary too! Sunday 3rd June is the Family Service, starting at 6 p.m., so if you can get along to that, please come along and celebrate not only the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee but a different kind of jubilee altogether…

We are holding an anniversary weekend on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July, to celebrate two years since our official opening on Market Street. On the Saturday, we will be holding a community/ craft day from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and there will be a film night in the evening (further details to follow shortly.) Our meetings on the Sunday will be at the usual times of 10.30 a.m. and 6 p.m., but we will be continuing the celebrations and hope as many people from the local community and local churches as possible will be able to attend. We are so grateful for all that God has done for us in providing us with such a wonderful building and in meeting all our practical and spiritual needs while here!
