This Bank Holiday Monday is the first day of the Circuit Holiday. A coachload of people from across the 18 churches in our Vale of Aylesbury Methodist Circuit are off together to enjoy the delights of Bournemouth and surrounding area.
Staying at the centrally-located Suncliff Hotel the itinerary includes trips to Portsmouth, Southsea, Christchurch, Poole and Swanage. Organised by Peter and Jane Honeyball and with our Superintendent Minister Rev. Helen Kirk in the party, we wish them all a great time together. If this was the City, Helen might be accused of insider trading given the sunny weather forecast for most of the trip! We hope they all remember to slap on the sun block!

Is it time to update our Christian CV, as there is the danger that the new...
