Social Events: Getting to know each other
Care for those with memory loss
P&J Social: 2.00-4.00pm alternate Wednesdays in St Peter's Rooms
This social group for those with a diagnosis of memory loss and their partner or carer has a few vacancies. A chance for carers to have a quiet cup of tea and chat with others in the same situation, whilst their loved ones are cared for and entertained. Everyone leaves with smiles on their faces! If you would like to know more ring Anne on 077999 862 035.
Tuesdays: 28 November - 19 December
10.00am-12 noon in St Peter's Rooms
As we prepare for the gift of Jesus - God with us - this Christmas we're joining with the Methodists for four weeks of reflection, time to focus on the blessing and what lies ahead.
Everyone is warmly welcome.
Join the fun of Christingle making
Saturday 2 December
10am in St Peter's Rooms
The scent of oranges, the sticky spikes of sweets, making Christingles is one of the first Christmassy things to do and we have a lot of fun doing them. You can bring your children too, even little ones are often brilliant at threading all those marshmallows and jellies and there's always space to play!
'Flog it' comes to Prestbury
Adam Partridge: Friday 8 December
11.30am - 2.00pm in St Peter's Rooms
Valuable heirloom or pretty bric-a-brac? A chance to bring your favourite treasure to television's Adam Partridge for a free valuation. He'll also give us a talk about how to value antiques. Tickets include a sandwich lunch: £15 (or £10 for members of Friends). Call David Hawkins on 829833 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Giving shelter on the coldest night
Winter Hope is looking for volunteers to help
Winter Hope at Macclesfield (WHAM) is a project supported by the local Hope churches network and they're looking for volunteers to staff its night shelter for the homeless this winter. Check November's bulletin or talk to Anne Stirling or Kate Collins.
Do you enjoy coffee after morning services?
It's lovely to see friendly faces making our coffees but have you noticed how often they are the same friendly faces? It would be really good if we could share this easy task out a bit more. Pop your name down on the rota and join in!
Pick up a free Christianity magazine
If you didn't come on the weekend away you can still enjoy the magazine everyone was given. 'Christianity' is at the back of church - please help yourself.
Will you risk the Big Church Day Out?
To ensure that there will be a northern Big Church Day Out next year, the organisers are looking for individuals, businesses or groups to help underwrite the costs. This year's made a small loss but as it was the first one they are confident that next year's will finance itself. It is still a risk but one that we believe is worth taking to keep a fabulous weekend to support Christians in the north as well as the south. Please talk to Patrick.
