Preparing for the Christingle Service

Adults and children spent a couple of hours making all the Christingles for the service on Christmas Eve.

Carol Singing

On Thursday 22nd December, a group went Carol Singing and collected the sum of £127.23 which will be divided between the local "Kings Cross" charity based at our sister church, Trinity Methodist/URC, which supports disadvantaged families in our area, and an orphanage run by the Church of South India in Durgapur. We have had several visits by the Bishop of Durgapur through his contact with our minister, Rev Neil Drayton. A group from the church will be visiting Durgapur in the summer and they will take our contribution to their cause.
