Gill Marks: January 2020
It was the turn of our church to be the focus of prayers within our Vale of Aylesbury's 17 Methodist churches. Senior Church Steward Gill Marks wrote:
"The Christmas activities at AMC started this year with our Christmas Tree Festival at the beginning of December, when many of our church and community centre users joined together to decorate their Christmas trees, and a successful day was had, and we managed to raise the balance needed to finish paying for our new Welcome Space.
Christmas services continued with the Circuit Carol Service, Christingle, Midnight Communion and of course Christmas Day services, when it is always good to catch up with family and friends both old and new.
Cards for Good Causes again had a very good year and we are grateful for all those that support that, both buying cards and gifts, as well as giving up time to cover the shop every day.
As we go into 2020, we continue to hold Friday Food in the new Welcome Space, where those in need of a hot meal can drop in on a Friday evening, and again we are grateful to those who enable this to take place.
We ask for your prayers as we continue with our community work within the church."
