Eaton Bray Methodist Church
Posted on August 5, 2007
Our summer Garden Fete was a most successful event enjoyed by all. Special thanks go to Jane, James and Nikki Mcfarland for hosting the day in their lovely home and garden. Thank you also to everyone who came along and supported us and to all members and friends for their hard work beforehand, during and after the fete. A total of £1094 was raised and this has been shared between the Chernobyl Children Life Line and Chapel funds.
On Saturday September 8th our Chapel will be taking part in our Circuit Pilgrimage, as part of our Circuit Charles Wesley Day. This will be an opportunity to visit the Churches in the Chiltern Downs Circuit and see displays of their history and their life today. From 10.00am until 12.noon you can visit The Square, Sundon, Trinity, Luton Road, Harlington and Linslade Churches and from 1.00pm until 3.00pm, Eaton Bray, Edlesborough, Dagnall, Toddington, Trinity and Harlington. We can promise you a very warm welcome at all of our churches. Following the Pilgrimage there will be a Faith Tea at 5.00pm in the Square Methodist Church Dunstable. ( Everyone is asked to take along some food to share.)
To conclude the day's celebrations, at 7.00pm, Mr. Mark Topping will perform a drama entitled "Charles Wesley: My Own Familiar Friend". This will explore the life of Charles Wesley to show something of the whole person and not just the gifted hymn-writer.
Our Harvest Supper will be held on Saturday September 22nd and tickets will be available from church members.
The Harvest Festival Service will be on Sunday September 23rd at 10.30am and led by Rev. Vindra Maraj-Ogden together with our Sunday School. All Harvest gifts will be distributed as previously, the dry/packaged goods to Crombie House in Leighton Buzzard, fresh produce will be purchased by donations and the proceeds and the offertory given to the Methodist Relief and Development Fund and our Chapel. This is always a very special service and we invite you to join us.
We resume our monthly lunches on Saturday October 13th at 12.noon until 1.30pm when the chosen charity will be the Keech Cottage children's hospice. Do join us and enjoy a tasty lunch in friendly surroundings and help to support a worthwhile local charity.
