New Year Thoughts

TMC Lights  

 Happy New Year everyone and welcome to the first Timperley Methodist Church Newsletter of 2019.  Christmas was the usual busy time for us all no doubt.  The church had the usual array of services at this special time of celebration and we hope you enjoyed seeing the lights and crib scene that we had at the front of church over the period.  Thank you if you attended one of our services and to all who helped make this time so special and thank you to all who contributed and helped with the lights.

Now we are in the New Year we have much to look forward to as well.  Over the next few months we will feature some of the different styles of worship and activities that the church has happening on its premises. This hopefully will include articles from church groups and groups that use our rooms.  This month we feature articles about the Girls Brigade and the Dementia Group Meeting.  I hope you enjoy reading about them.  

In September, Rev Janet Aspey became the minister responsible for Timperley Methodist Church taking over from Rev Ros Watson who will be moving on to Poynton in February. We wish Ros well in her new role.  We hope to have an introduction from Janet in a newsletter soon. For my part (Malcolm Aspey - yes you guessed it - husband), I will be taking more of a role within the church.  This is yet to be fully defined, but one role for sure is to be a pastoral contact for all groups and people using our premises, and continuing the development of our growing links within Timperley.  Exciting times indeed. 

For now though, I hope to be at the Church on most Wednesday mornings from the beginning of February. I will be at our regular Coffee Corner coffee shop, so if you need to speak to someone at the church, or just fancy a coffee and chat, please pop in. Our friendly, fairtrade coffee shop is open every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning from 10 till 12 with fresh coffee, tea, toasted teacakes and more.  We'd love to see you.

Please don't forget our Foodbank, who at this time need plenty of donations.  Collection trolley in the front porch.
