Aylesbury Methodist Church is following last weekend's town centre Heritage Open days with its own Heritage Sunday (aka Chapel Anniversary!) . So this Sunday, September 20th, you are invited to come along to the 10.30am service led by our own DJ (full name, Reverend David Jenkins, our former Superintendent Minister). We must warn you that this service may contain some very old jokes. If you can withstand those, you are invited to share our celebration of 122 years of serving God by serving Aylesbury and the wider world. You are also welcome to share our 'faith lunch'. Everyone brings some food to share, but like the Bible story of the loaves and the fishes, there is always more food than we need. So just come! Food, friendship, fun and fellowship awaits.
