Local Churches (Broom Leys) – November 2014 Update
Andy, Neil and I continue to meet regularly with our Baptist and Methodist friends from Greenhill Community Church and Hall Lane Methodist Church. Once again we have produced a joint Christmas card featuring the winning design from our school Christmas card competition held last Christmas. A card will have been delivered to everyone in the Parish in the run up to Advent and Christmas.
St. David’s Art Club has agreed to design an Easter card for distribution next year.
Greenhill Community Church (GCC) News:
At our meeting in October, GCC told us that church attendance has held steady since Jill’s departure. Their week of prayer held during half term in October, based around God’s “I AM” statement to Moses, was well attended each day.
In conjunction with the Tenants and Residents Association, GCC held a World War 1 commemorative tea dance and exhibition on Saturday 8 November followed by a Remembrance Day service on Sunday 9 November.
GCC is beginning an outreach to the Polish community in Greenhill and have invited a Polish pastor to lead a service on some Sunday evenings, which will be conducted in English with a Polish translation.
An Alpha course for older people is under consideration for next spring.
Hall Lane Methodist Church (HLMC) News:
Their Lunch Club is very busy.
The Kids Club has doubled its numbers to 10 since our last meeting in August. The church sees this initiative developing slowly.
The Hospice Hope charity and Ladies fellowship meetings are also thriving.
Eddie Henderson has produced 700 audio CD’s of a modern take on the Christmas story, for distribution around the Methodist circuit. It takes the form of a newspaper headline review (similar to that seen on Sky News and the BBC in the late evening) with fictional characters discussing the headlines of the Christmas story. It is intended to generate interest in the true meaning of Christmas and their people are being asked to listen to it and pass it on to someone who might not know the Christmas story. Copies are available for 20p.
Next joint service – Greenhill Community Church Sunday 25 January 2015 6pm.
