45 people enjoyed themselves listening to Nick crooning to them. The Church rocked to a variety of music and we had fun. £330 was made for Church funds. We are grateful to Rev. Nick for giving up his time and to Chris & Vincent, Sue & Malcolm, Val & Colin for organising the refreshments.
We have been most fortunate to be gifted the former Coleshill Methodist church chairs to replace our green 1970 chapel chairs. These give a much improved comfort level with the padded upholstery and have made the main church a much brighter environment. We now have a range of three chairs which form the lifespan of the building since 1914. Find out a little more and scroll down, in our history section here. Our thanks to Coleshill for allowing these chairs to continue their proper use of worship.
For 2023 we have sent off 18 shoe boxes to Link to Hope. Gideon took them to our area organisers in Erdington. They will be picked up from there and delivered to children and adults in Ukraine or nearby countries.
Many thanks to those who filled a box.
Coffee morning today for Greenfingers, £110 was made. A few more there than the last couple of months. Lovely refreshments including Fiona’s famous meringues. Fiona decorated the tables for Remembrance,with red poppies she had crocheted. They looked great and were sold afterwards contributing further to the total of £121.
The new chapel chairs look very smart.
