On Sunday 30th April friends from Halmer End, Audley, Bradwell, Silverdale and Madeley Methodist Churches joined together in a new Venture. Our first ever Safari Meal!
Over 70 people from across all five churches joined together for this our first ever Safari Meal. The day Began at Audley Methodist Church where we had our Main course. We then moved on to Bradwell for our dessert. The day ended with a 'Cafe Style' Act of Worship led by our Minister Rev'd Helen Hoe. During worship each church chose a Hymn which was of significance to them, and we all shared our stories together. Some Great Hymns were chosen.
The day was a great success and was extremely well received. Great appreciation was shown to all those who made the day possible. A lot of organising was put into making the day a great success.
The event raised £300 which will be shared equally between Water Aid, CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) and Donna Louise Trust.
We Hope there will be many more!
