Holiday at Home - Monday 19th, Tuesday 20th and Thursday 22nd August - The theme this year is “Droitwich – Staycation” so we will be featuring Droitwich and its history and surrounding points of interest.  You may well experience and learn something new about the place where you live. If you can’t get away for a holiday do come along. Booking forms and forms for offers of help (catering, lifts, cakes) are now available from the church office.

 MONTHLY COMMUNION SERVICES– it was decided at the Church Council meeting that with effect from 1st September, we drop the monthly mid-week communion service, and re-introduce a second monthly Sunday 9am Communion Service.  At this stage on the 3rd Sunday of the month.

This church is planning to have a stand at the Droitwich Salt Fest In September - This is an exciting opportunity to meet people who might not know about The Methodist Church in Droitwich and to discover what God wants us to do for them. We are not planning to preach and evangelise, simply to meet, greet and listen. There will be opportunities to meet together as a team nearer the day and a time to share our experiences afterwards. 

Worcestershire Operation christmas child  Film Night (at Droitwich Methodist Church) - 21st September 2019 - A Street Cat Named Bob (Rating 12).  Tickets £5/£4ch. 

Operation Christmas Child - We are already making plans for the OCC packing weekend this year and are pleased with the items for the boxes which are appearing already. The dates are Friday November 15th for preparation day and Saturday November 16th for shoebox packing day so please put the dates in your diaries. My hope is that everyone will do this year what they have always done before!! As always everyone is welcome on the day even if it is only to drink coffee and spectate!! Thanks to everybody.  NB Toothpaste and sweets are not allowed any more but all toiletries including combs etc are welcome.  Reporters notebooks are very useful and can be bought in packs of 5 from the Pound shops throughout the year. Pencil cases, pens, crayons, sharpeners and erasers are all essential.  Toys with the wow factor will still be difficult to find but we must continue to look.

NAVIGATING CHANGE CONFERENCE - IDENTITY - Navigating Change is a movement that is concerned about the future of the Methodist Church in the UK. The figures speak for themselves, as year on year we have continued to decline in numbers to the point where it has become a critical issue. This movement could be a starting point for you and your leadership to regain a sense of urgency and energy, to catch a fresh vision and to begin the process toward growing and planting new churches.

Date and Time Tue, 19 Nov 2019, 13:00 – Wed, 20 Nov 2019, 15:00 Location: Swanbank Methodist Church, Swan Square, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent ST6 2AA  For further info - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/navigating-change-tickets-60309790206 

CREATE WORSHIP”-  Wednesday afternoons:

I would like to invite you- you in the pew- to join me at CREATE WORSHIP in the task of designing creative and inspiring Sunday worship services. As from Wednesday, 17th April, I will meet on a weekly basis with others at the church at 3.00pm (until 4.00pm) to CREATE WORSHIP. You are welcome to come along whenever you can make it- IT IS NOT A COMMITMENT TO COME ALONG EVERY WEEK! Come and make a difference. Yours, Gary.
