April 2012

Corporate Communion Sunday, 1st April at 10.15 am

Several members attended the Women's World Day of Prayer service at the Methodist Church on 2 March. I'm sure those who attended would agree that this was an enjoyable service.

Over 100 posies were made for Mothering Sunday. This was only possible through the generosity of people contributing flowers and greenery and the help given by members in making these.

The Town Hall has been booked for Saturday 28 April for our Coffee Morning. Please put this date in your diary as this is our main fund-raising event of the year.

Afternoon MU Group

At the March meeting it was good to be able to welcome members from Wem, Welsh Frankton and Gobowen Mothers' Union Branches. The speaker was Sue Egerton who gave a talk on the MU Beacon and Marketing. Sue then led us in an exercise on marketing, which was not only useful and interesting, but also gave us an opportunity to work with members from the other branches.

The next afternoon meeting will be on 16 April at 2.00 pm in the Town Hall when Muriel Rayner will be giving a talk about her work in India as part of Voluntary Service Overseas.

Ellesmere eMU's

At the March Meeting Revd Simon Airey gave a talk on Story-telling in Ministry. Simon displayed his talent for story-telling in 3 stories which were all thought-provoking. I found the story Simon told based on a Bible passage particularly moving - it really brought the story to life in a new way.

The next evening meeting will be on the 19 April at 7.30 pm in St John's Room when we have a change to our published programme. Muriel Rayner is no longer able to join us and Wendy Scott has kindly agreed to step into the breach. Wendy has recently done 2 short periods of missionary one work - one in Uganda and one in Siberia - and will be giving a talk about this.

Yours in love and fellowship.
