Thank you to everyone who has been working hard behind the scenes to prepare for the Circuit Service on 15th May – the order of service is almost finalised and the choir have been practising every Thursday evening. The front steps have been jet washed and invitations have been sent out far and wide (but please keep spreading the word, we want as large a congregation as possible to come and meet the President of the Methodist Conference). Now as part as part of the final push we are having a spring clean at  11:00 a.m. on Monday 9th May  Help needed – please bring your clothsbrushes and dustpans.


Eco-Church – I’ve attached the latest email from Toilet Twinning to keep you informed of their latest news.


As The Grove is a member of North Notts BID we get one free place on a First Aid Training Course which is being held on Tuesday 24th May, from 9am – 4:30pm. at  Harworth Comrades Social Club. Is this something that you would be interested in attending? Please let me know and I will arrange for you to be booked onto the course.


We are currently applying for grants to assist us in the work that needs doing at The Grove including new heating, new doors, redecoration of the church and repairs to some of the external stonework. Thank you to Barbara Wilson who sent a letter to a local business and was promised £500 towards our scheme. Do you have contact with any local businesses that you could approach in a similar way? I have a template letter which you can send. Thank you.


Advance notice – our Annual Church Meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday 25th May at The Grove.
