LIBRARY   Please note that, after Saturday 24 June, the temporary Library here will be closed prior to re-location to the Falcon Centre, re-opening there on Tuesday 4 July, between 1.00 and 6.00pm.  Once again, we have been warmly thanked by the Library staff, for hosting a “token” Library here for the past 4 months.

“MINING FOR GOD” is an unique experience organised by Rev David Hasson (a few years ago a minister in this Circuit, now minister at Keswick Methodist Church) to enable a visit to the Honister Slate Mine at 2.00pm on Friday 21 or 28 July, or 4 August. The tour, guided by a Methodist, will be specifically looking at God’s Creation in the environment of the mine and including prayer, readings and praise. Booking is necessary. Please see the poster and further details on the notice board.

PRAYER FOOTNOTE:-    Eternal God, your awesome power is glimpsed in the highest mountain and the deepest ocean; your loving care is glimpsed in an intricate flower and the smallest creature; your wonderful promises are glimpsed in the Scriptures and realised in our living; and your amazing Grace is glimpsed and fulfilled in Jesus our Saviour. To you be honour, glory and praise for ever.      

Amen   Graham Thompson
