Saturday 27th February 1.00 pm to 4.00 pm
It’s time to come and enjoy a sweet treat at our Puddings Party to raise money for the Opening New Doors project. There’ll be hot and cold puddings, traditional and fancy puddings, custard and cream. If you can’t manage all you’d like on the afternoon, takeaways will be available. Donations for the project on the day place. We’ll also have a Phoenix card stall and a Tombola to tempt you with, so please put the date in your diary and enjoy the fun.
As a church we offer a regular dementia carers support group at Aroma, and have run information evenings too.
If you would like to know more about dementia, or are wondering why it is an issue for us as a church, there is a free information session next week in the village. Why not pop along?
Wednesday 3rd February
2 p.m., Chestnut Kitchen, 27 The Village, Haxby.
Please call in or ring 764577 to book a place.
Each year we set aside 5% of our annual income to donate to charitable causes beyond the local community of Haxby and Wigginton. This fund is in addition to money raised for specific purposes during the year by the congregation. Now is the time for you to submit your proposals for where the money is to be sent, and the Church Council will make the final decision in March. Priority is given to requests where members of our church have a personal connection with a charity (as a supporter or beneficiary) and donations make a significant difference to the cause concerned (and not just supplement general income).
In the past gifts have been distributed amongst the following causes – Missionary Aviation Fellowship; York Blind & Partially Sighted Society; Madalitso Project by the Malawi Trust; Tuberous Sclerosis Association; York & District Dyslexia Association. Please forward your suggestions to Jim Stonehouse, Mary Metcalfe or Adrian Brown ( firstname.lastname@example.org).
What does it mean to be the Methodist Church in Haxby & Wigginton? Come along to the four sessions to find out! Contact Rev Philip Turner on 760592 / 768326 or email@example.com They will be held on a Thursday evening starting 28th January from 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm. All welcome.
Operation Orphan – Gail and Jill will once again be collecting clothes for Moldova in May. So just a reminder not to get rid of any warm coats, wool scarves, hats, gloves, warm trousers or jumpers. They need to be suitable for children or young adults. We are always particularly short of hats, scarves and gloves for young men. They are hoping to go with the clothes again this year in early October and once again will be taking packs of disposable nappies as well as the clothing. Things can be collected before May if you need to get rid of them. Contact Gail on 690757 or Jill on 769034.
