The Welcome and Induction Service for Rev. Tracey Lewis was held at Holt U.R.C on Saturday 15th September 2018.
Wesley Road Methodist Church has a large number of surplus books such as Mission Praise, Hymns and Psalms and some Bibles. If any of the Area churches could use any of these or knows of an outlet for them, please contact the church secretary or senior steward.
The next Quiet Day will be held on 18 May.
It’s called ‘Taste and See’ (that the Lord is good) and is for the season of Easter – the seven weeks between Easter Day and Pentecost.
Area Quiet Days are for anyone at all who wishes to come along. We gather from 10, and begin at 10.30. The day ends between 3.30 and 4.00.
We provide tea/coffee/lunch; worship; introduction to the theme of the day; time and space for reflection and prayer; books, and a lovely setting at Whitley Methodist Church. There is no rule about joining in anything at all - we don’t mind if you go to sleep or go for a walk; the day is there to be used as you wish – a rest stop, perhaps, in the midst of daily life.
We encourage anyone to think about coming along, although places are limited.
We hope to see you!

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.
