Action for Children If you have an 'Action for Children' lantern collecting box it is now time to have it emptied. Could you please bring it and its contents to chapel before the end of September so that I can send the total to their headquarters. If you are unable to get to chapel please give me a ring on 01630 653805 and I will happily collect it from you. However much or little there is in the box, every little helps!
Your support continues to give children a safe and happy childhood.

MALCOLM VISITED AUDLEM'S NEW GARDEN
Recently I preached at Audlem Methodist Church, and was awe-struck by the new garden they have created at the back of the church.
It is part of their renovations of the building and creation of new rooms. I have visited quite a few quiet gardens but this was amazing.
The use of the space with the imaginative tree sculptures – created from tree stumps, by a student from Reaseheath College.
The seating areas are very good, and once the planting has been completed it will be quite a garden – even the walking areas are created with old rubber tyres!
The garden will be open all the time; there will also be services in the garden.
It will be available for use by people from Audlem walking in and having quiet moments. It is a real addition to the Quiet Gardens in the Circuit, and well worth a visit.
Starting on Wed 21st September there are a series of 9 lunchtime talks via Zoom on John's Gospel. They only last 50 minutes (1.10pm-2pm) but are delivered by various theologians. If you are interested in finding out more contact firstname.lastname@example.org they will send you the Zoom login details. I also have a flier which I can send to anyone interested via email if you want more details. The sessions on Matthew's Gospel earlier in the year were very good indeed. Anne Draper
