January 2011

Happy New Year!
Although January is traditionally a quiet month, we did quite a lot and were busy. Early January saw both of us laid rather low with a severe cold, and on Sunday 9th January neither of us were fit to preach and had to ask the congregations at Grimesthorpe Wesleyan Reform and Tapton Hill Congregational to make alternative arrangements. The church party on January 15th needed shopping and a quiz to prepare. Fortunately, a member with a car was available to help with the shopping.
On Wednesday 19th, Jonathan led the fellowship group at our Philadelphia Church on the theme of "The Wise Men". He took along samples of Frankincense and Myrrh and burned them on a charcoal block to demonstrate the smell.
The decisions taken at the Church Meeting will mean work later in the year, but at the present we will be concentrating on the publicity for them. The leaflet for "Early 2011" is in preparation and the Newsletter was produced. ( February 2011 to March 2011) Unfortunately Jonathan did not have his thinking head on when this was being done, and after printing, mistakes and omissions meant the production of two amendment sheets.
