Action for Children Sunday 14th July 2019 - This year we are celebrating "150 years of giving the gift of childhood". Rev'd Thomas Bowman Stephenson gave the very first gift when he opened The Children's Home, as the charity was then known. He offered a home, hope and love to children deprived of a safe and happy childhood. The Methodist Church and other supporters have ensured that his legacy of kindness continues today. Gift envelopes are now available for donations supporting vital work helping neglected and vulnerable children and young people. If you are a tax payer and are able to gift aid your donation, please do so. This will provide an additional 25p for each £1.00, at no extra cost to yourselves. Thank you very much for your continued support. Stella.
Circuit Farewell Service at Stephen Hill Methodist Church - today, Sunday 14th July, at 6:00pm, at 547 Manchester Rd, Sheffield S10 5PL.
Bible Study House Group - tomorrow, Monday 15th July at 7:30pm. For further information, ring Colin or Julie on 233 5531.
Community Singers - Thursday 18th July will be our last rehearsal before the summer. We will return on Thursday 5th September. As we come to the end of my first year with you, I want to say a big thank you for all your hard work and support. I’m so proud of you all and the beautiful sound you make. It is an absolute joy leading you on Thursday nights! Katie.
Ladies' Guild Coffee Morning will take place on Saturday 20th July 10:30am-1:00pm in the church hall. There will be a cake stall and 'Bring & Buy' stalls.
Response to Bible Readings - Following a discussion at Worship Consultation this week, we have agreed that following all bible readings we are encouraging everyone to use the following:
Reader: "This is the Word of the Lord."
Everyone: "Thanks be to God.”
This will also be projected. This is to help to keep responses consistent and to help people unfamiliar with the range of responses. Katie.
Graham's workshop is available for anyone to use to produce items for the Christmas Fayre.
Methodist Prayer Handbook - The 2019/2020 edition, which begins in September, needs to be ordered early August. This handbook is very helpful and informative as we try to focus our thoughts during prayer time. Each day has a personal prayer, then we are reminded of all the UK Districts, leading to prayers for the world. There is even a simple, coloured map to show where the countries are. A Geography lesson! The booklet costs around £4. If you are interested I need you to tell me by the end of July. I strongly recommend this Prayer Aid and will be glad to order in August. Thank you.
