March 2011

Susannah led the midweek fellowship at our Philadelphia Church on March 2nd. Her theme was wise owls. The following day was our leaders' meeting. This is not as formal as it sounds, we are in the habit of holding the meeting in a local restaurant and having a meal as we discuss the church business.

On March 9th, Jonathan represented the church at a meeting about the future of the Mayfield Environmental Education Centre next door. There has been some discussion about the possibility of the council closing the centre, and a number of concerned people attended. We agreed to write to councillors and meet again in a month.

On the 10th Susannah and Jonathan represented the church at the circuit meeting held at our Hampden View Church. Susannah chaired the meeting.

On the 11th and 12th, Jamie and Nathan went on the second session of the "Redefine Sheffield" meetings at St. Thomas'.

On the 13th Susannah preached at Philadelphia church again.

On the 19th Susannah went straight from the coffee morning to the Missions meeting at our Richmond Church. She found this interesting and was inspired to consider further what sort of Mission she could be involved in.

On the 20th Susannah preached at Tapton Hill congregational Church in the afternoon.

Towards the end of March a new edition of the newsletter had to the written and printed. alongside this there was information about the church in Asoha, India, with which we are now twinned. This information is available on the website. Follow the link to the mayfieldwrc blog on this blog, and from there to the website. If you would like to receive our newsletter by email, please get in touch.

Saturday 26th saw Susannah taking part in the "Women of Action" day "Glimpses of Heaven" at Hucknall Church. She was responsible for the hand therapy and massage sessions. During the day she met a member from another church who also feels called to take part in evangelism. They are to meet up later to discuss how this might develop.

On Thursday 31st, Susannah was again pampering at our Grimesthorpe Church, this time at a circuit "Women of Action" Reflections day. A good time was had by all.
