It's a link to the Conference page which in turn has links to President & Vice President's speeches.
Both speeches can be viewed as video, listened to as audio or read from text, whichever you prefer. If you choose video you will be able to view Methodist tartan as worn by the Vice President Jill Baker.
Did you know there was such a thing?!
The Advent Fair was held in the Methodist Church on Saturday 1st December. There were a large number of stalls, selling cakes, jam and marmalade, bric-a brac, cards, artwork, jewellery and many others. Some offered games and there was also a raffle. A big attraction was a miniature train ride to Santa's Grotto!
The Community Cafe was in the Hall all morning, where everyone took a few minutes (or longer!) for rest and conversation, sustained by excellent coffee and a great assortment of cakes.
The Tour of Britain cycle race came through Radcliffe-on-Trent last Saturday morning (8th September) and the riders toiled up Shelford Road past the Methodist Church. Like so many places along the route, the front of the church was decorated with yellow bikes and bunting and there was even a yellow car in the car park!
The event coincided with the Community Cafe, which raised funds for Action for Children, so the premises were buzzing with activity. In addition, hot dogs were made and sold in the car park, those proceeds also going to Action for Children.
Action For Children is a charity closely connected to The Methodist Church.
It works alongside Social Services to help disadvantaged children and families
in improving lives. The work encompasses children who need care; child carers
who need support; dad's clubs; support for children in hospital and lots more!
Our church supports Action For Children through Collections, the Christmas Card
and House Collecting Boxes.
The three events: Street Collection, House Collection and Community Café enable
Carnival Day: Saturday 8th July 2018
Carnival day dawned clear and bright. Guaranteed sunshine and blue skies - what a relief. After months of planning and painting we could relax and get on with the jobs in hand.
The Stephen's lorry arrived in good time; bacon butties were dished out by our two trusty ladies (Nan & Betty) - on we went.
It was good to have friends old and new assembling the float, which soon began to look amazing and very 'Chinese New Year'.
Twenty eight members and friends came to the Tuesday Afternoon Fellowship Garden Party at Christine's home on 24th July. It was one of the hottest days of the year and fortunately there was just about enough shade under the trees to shelter those who did not want to stay in doors.
After time spent in conversation tea was served which, as usual, consisted of an assortment of sandwhiches, crisps, trifle, cake and drinks, both hot and cold. Everyone enjoyed themselves and many went home with goody bags.
