Old Buckenham Methodists

Busy time at Methodist Church
A successful and enjoyable Alternative Quiz was held in April with five teams competing. A very different range of questions were tackled, many of which were visual questions using the TV screen fixed on the wall. The eventual winners was the team ‘two plus two’ consisting of Alison and David Hannah, Alison Frank and John Frost. Refreshments were on the tables to be nibbled all the evening and teas and coffees were served at half time. An excellent evening all round with £150 being raised at the Quiz for St Martins Trust in Norwich.
A very happy afternoon was held a few days later when the Chapel Friendship Group held their latest meeting. This time there were more quizzes devised by one of the members with the winners of each receiving a prize.
On Monday 3 June there will be an hour of Reflection and Prayer between 7pm and 8pm as part of the initiative of the Church of England, praying through the nine days between Ascension day and Pentecost. This will be led by Rev Jacqui Horton. Then on Wednesday 5 June the Chapel Friendship Group (CFG) meets at 2.30pm when Rev Jacqui Horton will be helping to organise something that relates to the '30 days Wild in June' being organised by the Wild Life Trust.
Songs of Praise will be as normal at 7.30pm on Wednesday 19 June.
Looking forward to the following month, the CFG meets at 2.30pm on Wednesday 3 July when Jacqui will be showing pictures and objects from her recent travels whilst on her sabbatical.
On Sunday 7 July at 3pm there will be a special service (no service in the morning). Sadly the Church will be losing the minister Rev Jacqui Horton and the deacon Jen Woodfin. Jacqui is moving on to become Superintendent of the Central Norfolk Circuit and Jen is going also, to continue her work as Deacon in that Circuit too. It is sad to see them go. A special service will be held on the above date, Jacqui and Jen will choose some hymns/songs and tea and cakes will be served. This service is open to all people in the village to enable them to come and say goodbye to Jacqui and Jen. If you have met them in the ten years that they have been connected to our Methodist Church, please come as this will be their last service here. They have both been very instrumental to the life of our church, (literally in Jen's case, as she plays the organ) and they will be missed tremendously.
Wednesday 18 July will be the last appearance of Jacqui and Jen at our Methodist Church for Songs of Praise at 7.30pm.
These events are open to all, please come and join in.
