There were over 600 copies of the church Christmas Card to be printed, put into envelopes and distributed round the area.
As well as the church activities detailed in the church blog, there were other events such as the circuit meeting, where Jonathan presented Julia with her certificate to mark 20 years service as a local preacher.
At this meeting, Jonathan came to the end of his two year stint as circuit president, and handed over to the capable hands of Carole Parkinson.
The invitations to the church party were printed and sent out to members, friends and people who have served our fellowship over the last year.
The church meeting met, and so did the Leaders of worship and preachers' fellowship. Jonathan and Susannah led the meeting on the theme "Symbols in Worship".
Jonathan represented the church at the funeral of Cedric Cocker, the well-known "Banner Man" of Sheffield, often to be seen in Fargate, and sometimes much further afield across the nation. He carried a banner to the last.
More details of his witness can be seen at

The preacher invited to our circuit evangelistic event in October came to speak at our St. Mary's Church, and we were able to listen to him and find out what his style was. There will be other meetings to finalise the main event, and also tom plan the stall in Norfolk Park in August.
The President of the Wesleyan Reform Union came to Sheffield in early March. He attended a meal at our Richmond church and spoke afterwards. Jonathan and Susannah attended the after dinner part of the event. The president than came to Mayfield on Sunday and preached on the story of Ruth.
