Ruth Watkins: April 2017
Methodist Women in Britain (MWiB) are organising two local events in May, one on Bethlehem and one on AllWeCan. On Tuesday May 2nd at Little Chalfont Methodist Church, Claire Welch from AllWeCan, (formerly Methodist Relief and Development Fund), will give up-to-date news on some of the worldwide partnerships supported by this Methodist charity. On Tuesday May 9th at Dunstable Methodist Church, Revd. Nichola Jones, who has been recently working in Bethlehem, will give a talk entitled, 'A Baby in Bethlehem'. This is a chance to hear first hand what life is like today's Bethlehem.
There is no charge for either event, but a collection will be taken. For travel, or more information, please contact Ruth Watkins on Aylesbury 485087 or email email@example.com.
