Past Event: Harvest Thanksgiving

On Sunday 1st October our Harvest Thanksgiving and Communion Service was be led by our Minister Revd Camilla Veitch.   Camilla’s theme for the service was about food from being very plentiful in some places to being very meagre in others. We watched pictures on the screen and heard the story of a farmer called Frank in Malawi who because of problems with the weather his crops failed so he couldn’t feed his family.  We sang some lovely harvest hymns throughout the service before celebrating communion together.  The children then came back into church from their Explorers Group showing the work that they had been doing during the morning.

The harvest table was overflowing with gifts of food and flowers which were to be sold after the service, the proceeds of which were to be sent with our envelope gifts to the farmers of Malawi through Christian Aid  (£192.32).



Past Event: 500th Anniversary of the Reformation

MARTIN LUTHER, THE REFORMATION AND HOW CHRISTIAN LIFE CHANGED – A lovely afternoon was led by Revd Professor Stephen Orchard when we spent an afternoon  singing, listening and praying in celebration of a key time in the life of the church.    This was followed by a “Bring and Share Tea” in the Glenorchy Centre.    It was great to come together and share with so many people from churches within the town and the area.

Past Event: Summer Barbecue

On Wednesday 23rd August Maureen and Charles  organised a Summer Barbecue in the Glenorchy Centre, Chapel Lane, Wirksworth.  There was also a quiz which caused great merriment.  It was a lovely evening enjoyed by everyone.  £155 was raised for URC funds.
