Summer and Early Autumn 2013

Once again, time has been our enemy, and blogging has had to take a back seat.  Over the months there have been hundreds of copies of leaflets made and distributed.  "Summer 2013" and "Autumn 2013" were both distributed to over 600 homes.
Two editions of the newsletter have also been produced and printed.  
Susannah and Jonathan have represented the church at meetings for the circuit outreach events, and all the leaflets were produced for the circuit outreach stall at Sheffield Fayre in Norfolk Park.

The event was a great success, with many conversations being had with people passing by, and many requests for prayer being left with us.  We gave away many leaflets, texts, bibles, tracts and books.
Some of our members found the attractions of the Fayre an added bonus!
There was a circuit meeting at Mayfield in early September, and a meeting to examine the outcome of the outreach events in early October at Hampden View Church.

Over the three months, Susannah and Jonathan preached at 13 appointments, including a visit to Hough Lane Wesleyan Reform Church in Wombwell, where we were sent on the "Connexional Plan".  This an arrangement whereby preachers are asked to volunteer to be at churches where they would not normally visit.
