For the past few years, the Methodists for World Mission Trustees have had their overnight meeting at our home, 48 DOWER ROAD, B756TX with them sleeping for the Friday night in various homes. This year due one regular host being away and a difficult for another there is likely to be a shortage. If therefore you have a spare bedroom , which someone could use for that night, please contact me on 01213082251  The person would come/ be brought to your home between 10-10.30p.m. on the Friday and need to be back at our house for a usual 10a.m. start, but the new President may change that time. You are not required to provide any meals as they can breakfast at our home if easier for any host.They will have had dinner here around 7 p.m. and lunch on the Saturday plus obvious snacks. Just think you could help in this way please.
By hosting in this way MWM saves over £1,000, which is then used to support projects suggested by Mission Partners serving overseas, which seems a better use of funds.

Great Time of Fellowship and Worship at Nechells Harvest Festival


Everyone who came to the Nechells Harvest Tea and Service had a great time yesterday. The Nechells ladies (and gentleman!) put on a tremendous tea and as time passed many more friends and people from the circuit arrived. The church itself was wonderfully decorated and the service afterwards was really lively, uplifting and spirit filled: a real joy to everyone who was there. Thanks to those involved with organising it and making it such a success.

Summer clothes, small toys and books

If you have any of these items Nkanfoa Methodist School, Ghana could use them. If children’s clothes won’t fit next Summer then we will store them until we go to Nkanfoa in April. Board books and story books for 7-12 year olds. Wooden ‘fit-in’ jigsaws, stacking and ‘post box’ toys and other small toys for 2-4 year olds.
Contact 0121 308 2251  or and we will collect at mutually suitable times.
