Memory Walk for Alzheimer's
During September Avril Topping, from The Hurst Kingsley, will be doing the Memory walk for Alzheimer's, hoping to walk 100 miles. Avril's mother had Alzheimer's and now her only sister has been diagnosed, so it is a cause very dear to her heart. Donations can be made via her Just Giving page, please click here for the link.
Just a quick notice that the next Church Safeguarding Officers meeting has been set for the evening of 22nd September. An agenda and Zoom details will be sent out to Church Safeguarding Officers nearer the time.

The Methodist Church in Britain and All We Can have launched a joint appeal in response to the powerful earthquake that struck Haiti’s Southern Peninsula, on August 14.
The onset of tropical cyclone Grace on Monday and Tuesday this week looks set to impede relief efforts with many thousands of people having lost family and friends. The death toll is still climbing and casualties are overwhelming limited local medical provision.
We’ve been speaking with our networks, friend and partners in Haiti, and across the region, since the quake struck, understanding the situation and needs. Our local approach – working through partners already there, allows for an agile response
As the Methodist Church in Britain and All We Can stand together to bring hope, we invite you to stand with those affected in Haiti.
Please give, and join us in praying for the early response.
UPDATE: BUNBURY & TIVERTON CHAPELS
Many thanks to all who have enquired about items from the two properties. If I haven't yet been back in touch with you, I will do so very soon.
Both chapels will be open on the 25th September between 10-12 when items that have been reserved can be collected, also if anyone wants to come and have a look to see if there is anything of interest you would be most welcome.
Blessings, Rev Jo Brown
As many of you will know, Bunbury and Tiverton Chapels ceased to meet for worship at Easter this year. As we are currently preparing the buildings for closure, there are a number of items that we would like to re-home where possible. If you have church members who have not returned to worship yet and want to consider gifting them a hymn book to use at home, there are a number of H&P and Singing the Faith available. There may be other items that you think you could use or re-purpose.
If you are interested in any of the items on either list, please email me at email@example.com and copy in Mike Ridley at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us of your interest. At the end of August we will arrange a date when you can come and collect the items, and on the same day we will be open for anyone to come and see if there is anything left of interest that you would like to take. We are not looking for payment of any kind, but if you would like to give something, the circuit treasurer would no doubt be more than happy to receive any donations.
Blessing, Rev Jo and friends from Bunbury and Tiverton
