On Saturday 2nd December between 2.00 & 2.30 HMB will be singing carols outside M&S at Castlepoint in Bournemouth. Then, between 2.30 & 3.30, Peter Aston will be singing carols and other seasonal songs at ASDA at Castlepoint. Come on down for a good old sing!
This year Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday and at 6.00 you’re invited to ‘Carols around the Tree’ on the lawn at Holtwood Methodist Church. After a good sing we’ll adjourn to the Hall for seasonal refreshments. What a great way to celebrate Christmas Eve together!
Coming up at Holtwood on 26th November and 3rd December – a two part service with HMB looking at, on the 26th, Stir-Up Sunday and what it could mean for us today and then, on the 3rd, how Stir-Up Sunday relates to the beginning of Advent. Both services start at 6.00 – it would be great to have a full church!
On Sunday 9th July at 6.00 we’ll join with our local Anglican and Woodlands Methodist friends on Holt Village Green for our annual open air ‘Songs of Praise’. The evening will be led by Revd Suzie Allen and Revd Nigel Deller with music by HMB. If it’s wet we’ll be in St James’ Church at Holt – but hopefully we’ll see you on the Green in the sunshine!
Our Summer Fair is coming up on Saturday 8th July between 12.00 & 4.00. Lots of stalls, games, strawberry cream teas, etc – and live music from pop duo Mel and Me, singer/songwriter Vic Salt, top folk duo No Fixed Abode – and I’ll be playing a few pieces along the way as well. Hope to see you there – in the sunshine!
