Church Charity Project 2018

It was decided that our Church Charity Project for 2018 was CBM (Christian Blind Mission) - the overseas disability charity.

The first fund raiser was Pancake Day on Tuesday 28th February and then there was Countdown on 31st March. The church "Concert of the Classics" on 21st April raised about £500. The Spring Fair was the next big event on on Saturday 12th May. Later in the year the main event was the Christmas concert.

In their 2019 news email CBM wrote:

Huge thanks to our churches Trinity Methodist Church, Congleton and Christ Church Woodley made CBM their Church Charity of the Year for 2018 and each raised over 6,000. Their hard work and generosity will make a life-changing difference for people living with disabling conditions in the poorest countries of the world.

Holiday Bible Club 2018 - Mission Rescue

In 2018 "Mission Rescue" was back, on a secret agent theme, looking at the story of Moses and its relevance to life today. It ran from 6th until 10th August from 10:00 to 12:30, as usual, and was free for up to 40 children, aged 5 to 10. The children enjoyed games, art, crafts, cookery, stories, jokes, puppets and music based on material from Scripture Union. Jokes were supplied by the children and read out each day by Agent S (S for Smiley - if you see him smile you know you're in trouble). Joke of the week was: "Where does a spy sleep? Undercover!"

Paddington's Pilgrimage

From 2017 to 2019 Paddington is making his way around the churches in the URC Wessex Synod. We had him visit us and Woodley Airfield Church for the week starting 1st July. He is visiting as many groups as he could, especially youth groups, and is asking the churches two questions about how young people are welcomed and nurtured in the church. You can read his blog of the week.
