Eaton Bray Methodist Church
A special thank you to everyone who helped to run and those who came along and supported our Garden Party and lunches in June. A cheque for £500 has been sent to the Bible Society - Four Homes of Mercy and the balance given to our Chapel maintenance fund. We are especially grateful to Jane, James and Nikki Mcfarland for organising and running the event in their beautiful home and gardens.
During June the Ladies of the Bright Hour held a week of celebrations to acknowledge the closure of their group. The Thursday meeting was led by our minister the Rev. Peter Dudeney and the ladies and their special guests then reminisced over a scrumptious afternoon tea. The following Sunday a special service was led by Mrs Joan Gregory with the help of the Bright Hour members. Thank you Kitty and all the ladies for the special times they have shared with us all.
A reminder that there will be a Pilgrimage around the Churches in the new Chiltern Downs Circuit on Saturday August 12th from 10.00am culminating with a picnic tea and a service at Edlesborough Chapel, contact either chapel for details.
Our Harvest Supper will be held on Saturday September 23rd . Please contact Chapel members for tickets and information.
Harvest Festival service will be on Sunday September 24th at 10.30 am. This will be a Family Service lead by Mr Bob Harris with the help of members of the Sunday School.
Monthly lunches will resume on Saturday October 14th at 12.00 noon until 1.30 pm, everyone will receive a warm and friendly welcome and a tasty meal.
We were very sad to hear of the passing of our dear friend Mrs Alice Patrick. She was a loyal member of our congregation and attended chapel as often as her health allowed. As with anyone in their late nineties, her health began to fail, but her mind continued to be as active as ever. Alice always had a ready smile of greeting and loved to know your news, taking a genuine interest in hearing about what you had been up to. Although small in stature she will leave a large gap at chapel and will be remembered with great affection by us all.
We extend our condolences to her family in their loss.
