AUGUST MORNING SERVICES
Please note that the August services will be paused on Zoom, due to the different formation of the services which will make it more difficult for those on Zoom.
Please contact Helen if you would like orders of service from The Methodist Church, the same as those not on email have been receiving over the last couple of years. Otherwise, we would recommend that you follow services from other churches on their utube channels.
 
 
SUNDAY AUGUST 14
UPDATED THOUGHTS ON THE BARBECUE ON SUNDAY 14 AUGUST
PLEASE READ AS THIS IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT TO THE PREVIOUS NOTICE
We are really looking forward to hosting our church and community barbecue on 14th August.  There is a sign-up sheet available for you to add your name - and those of you not on email please let Helen know if you would like to attend - and whether you would be bringing a salad or a dessert to share. This will make sure that we have enough food for everyone.

As part of our ongoing commitment to support those on the margins, and those impacted by the cost of living crisis - you are also invited to bring a cash donation which we will put towards buying a food pallet for The Well and The Good Shepherd Ministries.  

We look forward to seeing you, whatever the weather!

OTHER MATTERS                                                                                     
 
REFRESHMENTS IN CHURCH
If you come to the Sunday morning services, I expect you are amongst those people who stay behind for refreshments, and obviously enjoy the chance to have a good chat and share with others.
It would be really helpful if Helen could have one or two more volunteers, please,  so that those people who have volunteered don’t need to do it as often as they are doing so at the moment.
COMPLINES                                                                                                                                                      
Please note that Complines have been paused for August, but will continue again in September, on Tuesdays at 7.45pm, on Zoom. This is a 15/20minute service rounding off your day with prayers, readings and videos, and is taken by a variety of members. Over the last two years we have found these Complines very helpful.
If you are interested in attending, please let Helen know and you will be given the Zoom details
 
ECO TIPS
  1. Think green when cleaning. We all have our favourite detergents and cleaning products that we’ve used for years, and never really thought about the harm they could be doing to the environment. Once they’re washed down the drain they go into the water supply, and it can often take a lot more energy and hard work to purify the water again at treatment works. There are some simple switches you can make. Bicarbonate of soda, lemon juice or vinegar can all be used in place of bleaches and detergent to kill bacteria and leave homes grease and odour free. Switching to steam cleaners as a way to disinfect and kill germs is another green way of keeping homes clean – no cleaning products needed at all, except for water!
  2. Invest in an eco-kettle. Who doesn’t love a good cuppa, or a delicious hot cup of coffee? Before you boil the kettle again, think about how you fill it up. Brewing for one? Just use the water you need for that one cup – not for six cups. Investing in an eco-kettle can be a great boon, especially if you’re someone who drinks a lot of tea/coffee during the day. They boil quicker, use less energy and look smart!
  3. Compost your food waste. Turn any food waste and kitchen scraps into compost. You can buy a compost bin very cheaply from many home/DIY outlets and some refuse services will offer to give them free of charge to households, to place in their kitchens. Scrape any leftover, or old food into them and simply leave it be. Over time it will turn into useful compost that can be used in the garden.
