NETWORK – We enjoyed tackling some of the new hymns/songs in Singing the Faith
this last Wednesday, under the guidance of Christine Hodkinson. We also used the
Singing the Faith CDs, which the church has bought to help both the church and the
circuit when there is no organist. On Wednesday next, 29th October at 2.30pm, Janet
Evans will be leading the afternoon on the subject of her Favourite Places. Network
meets in the Lower Room and is for men and women.

SAMARITAN’S PURSE SHOE BOX APPEAL
Quite a lot have been taken – thank you!! More needed to go though.
Don’t forget the bin for ‘FILLERS’.
Collection day is Monday November 24th and
boxes can be returned to ‘The Source’ on Terrace Road, as well as to
our church. Thank you, Iris.
CIRCUIT PLAN
The latest Circuit Plan (to cover the period 1st December 2014 to 28th
February 2015) is now available at the back of the church.
Have you considered giving to the Church directly from your bank? We
would welcome contributions by standing order, which then reduces
administration and streamlines the recovery of Gift Aid. Please give
thought to whether you could give in this way – forms are available at the
back of Church, at buxtonmethodistchurch.org.uk/finance or speak to
Colin Parker (tel. 78831).

HOLLINSCLOUGH CHAPEL
Meat and Potato Pie Supper
Friday November 14th
ENTERTAINMENT
Talk by Olivia and Arthur Slack at 7pm
FRIDAY CLUB (ECUMENICAL YOUTH GROUP)
The group has been very busy. Recently members have used money
raised at the September Table Top Sale to go out and buy items for the
Samaritan’s Purse projects, they have welcomed a visitor from the
United Reformed Church who sought the members’ help in completing a
Prayer Reflection Wall and there has been a craft workshop.
They are now planning Christmas events and hope to offer, instead of a
"Sleep Over", a "Stay Awake" at the end of November. They have
enough volunteers for this, but if anyone has a hobby or talent that they
would like to share with the group, they would love to hear from you.
Musicians and craft enthusiasts would be especially welcome to offer
sessions for the New Year programme.
Please don't forget that new members are very welcome and they don't
need to belong to any church congregation to join.
Contact Johanna, Di, Mary Lou or Aileen for further details. (Tel: 07912
617135).

TRAIDCRAFT AT CHAPTER AND VERSE
The range of Traidcraft items stocked by Chapter and Verse, the Christian Bookshop on
Buxton Market Place, covers pasta, rice, four kinds of sugar, tea bags, fresh ground
coffee, coffee powder (both ordinary and decaffeinated), cocoa, drinking chocolate, toilet
rolls and kitchen towels. The farmers and producers in the countries of origin deserve
our support in buying these fairly traded goods.
CHURCH MAGAZINE
Please help. We strive to make our magazine interesting and relevant to our
congregation and the wider community, but we really need more articles to put in it.
Perhaps you have a particular hobby you could tell us about or have read a great book,
or tried a new recipe, perhaps you’ve seen a wonderful film, or won a competition,
perhaps as a gardener you can give some seasonal advice? Whatever your talents or
interests are we would love to hear from you! Please send your articles to Anna Quick
[email protected] or hand them to her at Church. If you need help writing an
article, please contact Tracey Elder 01298 78451. Thank you.
