Hazel's Charity Walk
Hazel says: "80 miles of walking during the month of August is my target. This will follow the Wilberforce Way in Yorkshire from Hull Minster to York Minster (in a series of day walks) plus a little extra to make up the 80 miles. I am doing this for two reasons: in September I hope to celebrate my 80th birthday and, as I love walking, it seemed a good way to mark the occasion: making it a sponsored event is important to me , especially to be supporting Mind UK."
Good luck Hazel! Follow this link to the JustGiving Page for more details and to make a contribution:

Exploring the Big Questions: scientists and theologians share their views
The living world is beautiful, intricate, and highly ordered. Organisms flourish across virtually every location on earth, and biological scientists are constantly discovering more about them. These findings spark awe in those who study the natural world, and also raise questions about the meaning of what we see. What’s so special about life? Why are we here? Where is it all heading? This is the message of the Wonders of the Living World book - follow this link to read more:
The Church of England is integrating science into its Ministry and Mission. Read more about this here:
An interesting brass image of John Wesley. It is extremely heavy and required taking apart to paint the black background and polish the brass, removing the lacquer that had been applied. Probably made C1850. Just 4" x 5" but it stands out on the wall or on a picture stand on the sideboard.
Seal of the Methodist Conference, bought at auction and now donated to:

The Schoolroom has a new floor covering. This makes cleanliness, hygiene and maintenance in these difficult times easier to achieve. Thank you to the Horace Taylor Trust for their generous grant for this project. Also, many thanks to the few volunteers who not only organised this significant improvement, but who contributed through joinery, fitting, clearing, cleaning, and finally polishing!
A Poem by Joy Ewbank
The Four aims of Methodists
Methodism's activities, both alone and with ecumenical and secular partners, are based on four aims known as Our Calling:
· To increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love
· To help people to grow and learn as Christians through mutual support and care
· To be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice
· To make more followers of Jesus Christ.
