NOTICE BOARD

FROM 23rd FEBRUARY 2021


Although we are all unable to meet together in person as Church, the work of God continues in each one of us as we seek Him in each and every day.

Sunday Worship

We know we have all been missing worship and the fellowship of meeting one another as we would normally do. The Leadership Team met last week and actively discussed plans to reopen Church for worship as soon as possible. Our main consideration as ever being the safety and well-being of everyone who attends. We do hope to be able to share our plans in early March. Boris is advising caution! So for the foreseeable future Sunday worship will continue be on Zoom.

The Link details are as follows for Sunday 28th Feb and each Sunday afterwards until further notice

  • In order that worship can start promptly at 10.30a.m.
  • Zoom will open the meeting at 10.15a.m. so that you can join and have time to settle before worship begins.
  • Meeting ID: 829 0179 9191
  • Passcode: 675773

The details to obtain the service by dialling on your phone are the same as before.

If you would like help with this please contact Ron Rhodes.

Collection

The current year’s envelope scheme finishes on the 5th April. For obvious reasons many of you may have been unable to use your envelopes as you would normally do. If you would like to make a donation to Church there are a number of options:

  • If you would like a Steward to call round to your home to collect the envelopes, please ring Barbara Banes .
  • Alternatively you could write a cheque made out to The Methodist Church Poulton Le Fylde General Fund and post it to Barbara, or put it through the Church letter box for “the attention of Barbara “
  • If you support the Church each Sunday but don’t use the envelope scheme, you may wish to write a cheque as above.
  • There is the option if you use Internet banking to pay by BACS to The Methodist Church Poulton Le Fylde General Fund; sort no 40-52-40 & account no 00023095 but please ensure you clearly state your name.

For the future you may wish to set up a Standing Order which is a very simple process. Please contact Ron Rhodes on 01253890297 if you wish to discuss this option.

It would be helpful if any Gift Aided contributions are made before the 5th April to enable our Treasurer to claim the tax enhancement in the 20/21 tax year

‘The Link’ – Easter Edition

Alan Banes would like to thank all those, including two new contributors, who have already submitted articles for ‘The Link’ and welcomes more before the final deadline of March 14th. The general theme is ‘things that put a spring in my step’. The deadline is tight for printing this year so early submissions would be appreciated.’

If you have anything you wish to be included in future Newsletters please let Ron Rhodes know
