Can you find yourself? Do you remember when ….? At Holtwood Methodist Church on Saturday 4th June from 1.00 there will be a display of photos and memorabilia of Holtwood events and folk over the past 70 years which will be part of our Platinum Jubilee Celebrations. Do join us for a cream tea as well whilst enjoying the flower displays – hope to see you there!
A ‘Big Thank You’ to all who supported our recent Coffee Morning and Gift Day. The amount raised was a staggering £6,717 – far above our expectations. And the bonus was that the donations on the morning for the Ukraine Appeal amounted to £450.
We’re really sorry to say that our fundraising Jumble Sale planned for 19th March has been cancelled due to ongoing Covid concerns and it will be re-arranged later. But the good news is that, so far as we’re aware, the Woodlands Jumble sale at Verwood Memorial Hall on 5th March is still going ahead – so you can still pick up a bargain!
On Saturday 19th March there will be a Jumble Sale in Holt Village Hall in aid of Holtwood Methodist Church and local community groups. All being well weather-wise, the plan is to hold it outside – do come along between 11am & 3pm and pick up a bargain!
Our next Church Council meeting will be at Holtwood on Wednesday 9th February at 7.30. The meeting is open to all church members and Church Council members may vote on any matters arising at the meeting. So – come along and find out just how much dedicated work for the Lord goes on ‘behind the scenes’ and perhaps offer yourself as a Church Council member at our Annual Church Meeting later in the year!
At the beginning of the New Year we had hoped to announce our return to share short times of worship with the residents of Streets Meadow. Alas, given the current Covid situation, this will not be possible in January or in February and, after then, we’ll review the position with the management at Streets Meadow.
On Christmas Day at 9.30, at Holtwood Methodist Church, Revd Nick Wood will be leading a family Christmas Celebration and then on Boxing Day at 10.45 Colin Besant will be leading our celebrations. It would be great if you could join us although, if this is not possible, then you can always view on-line – either live or at a time that’s good for you. The link is:-
Have a Wonder-full Christmas all!
