During the Methodist Conference earlier this year, it was made clear that the Methodist Church is in slow decline.
All our churches have been asked to pray for the renewal of the Church.
Our Worship Team are organising Prayer Stations within the Wesley Road Methodist Church.
The stations will focus on the rejuvenation of the Methodist Church. They will be set up after morning service on September 10th to be ready for use from 4pm on Sunday 10th followed by tea and cake.
During the following week the church will be open from 10am to 12 noon each day for prayer.
The stations will be taken down on 17th September after morning service.

ANY OLD TOOLS?
Did you know that there is a
refurbishing workshop at the Holt United Reformed Church?
We are part of the small national charity, Tools For Self Reliance. All sorts of hand tools are refurbished to go into dedicated tool kits that go to projects in Africa. Such kits are for Carpentry, Bicycle Repair, Auto Mechanics, Shoe Repair, Electricians etc. We also refurbish Singer sewing machines and collect haberdashery items. We don’t ask for gardening tools but if any turn up, we try and sell them for funds. Any other tools donated will be gratefully received.
The workshop is open on a
Wednesday morning, 9 ‘till 12-30.
