We'd like to thank all those who in anyway contributed to our services, the decoration of the church and our outreach over the Christmas period. People work tirelessly and we are thankful for it.
This has recently been upgraded and given a fresh new look. If you haven't visited it in a while, do have a look around the site. Christchurch & Wimborne (candwmc.org.uk). You will be able to find a News item with photos about the various Christmas events which have taken place at Wimborne.
A letter from the Chairman of the District:
Following on from our ongoing regional conversations, the Chairs of the five districts (Bristol, the Channel Isles, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly, Plymouth & Exeter and Southampton) have agreed a Regional Day of Prayer on Epiphany, 6th January 2022.
The hope is that all those who are part of the life of the Methodist Church in the Region will put aside some time during the day to pray alone or with others.
As our nation – along with the rest of the world – continues to wrestle with the effects and uncertainties caused by Covid19, please will you join us in setting aside some time to pray for all those who:
And so much more!
Please will you also use the Day of Prayer to ask what you/we are being called to do and be as God's Church is reshaped in these uncertain days? What might you do to pray for our world and everyone in it?
I expect you have your 2022 diary now and so here is a date to keep free in it!
Wimborne Folk Festival will return in 2022 after missing 2 years due to Covid. It will be held on the weekend of 10 – 12 June and as usual we at Wimborne Methodist Church are intending to use the weekend as an outreach to those attending and a fund raiser for local charities. We will serve refreshments over the weekend and have our usual stalls – Bric-a-Brac, Books and Cakes.
This club is on hold for the foreseeable future.
Our next meeting is on 4th January. Please let David or Linda know if there are any items you wish to bring to our attention at this meeting with Pauline. We will also be planning a follow up session to our useful Discernment Day held in November.
Please continue to e-mail any inclusions for January's newsletter to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave items in the pigeonhole near the Vestry.
