2018 Christmas Gift Appeal – tomorrow!

Mossley Methodist continues to support the Newtownabbey Methodist Mission Gift Appeal. Toys and money donations will be gladly received at tomorrow’s Sunday service, after which will be taken to the organisers at the Mission.

Place your unwrapped toy for boys or girls, between the ages of 0 -16 years, below the main hall Christmas tree before church service.

Also if buying a present is difficult, a donation box will be provided to place your gift of a money wallet that will go towards buying gas & electricity vouchers for a family in Greater Newtownabbey this Christmas.

Many thanks in advance for your kindness and continued unwavering response!

Gift Day total far exceeds expectations

It’s an absolute pleasure to thank everyone who contributed financially to our Harvest Gift Day Service a few weeks ago. As you may be aware it was in aid of the new heating system recently installed in our church at Mossley. 
So without further ado I can now invite you to pat yourself on the back at raising a staggering £3000! 
This has not only helped alleviate any financial concerns as we continue to pay off the bill, but we really are blessed to see how much the congregation really love their house of worship and genuinely care about each other’s warmth and comfort. 
The fund still has a way to go in achieving its full target, but we defiantly have hit the ground running. Thank you all for your continued support.

Mossley Church Outing – Open Top Bus Tour

I think it’s safe to say that we all really enjoyed our Belfast Sightseeing excursion, and would highly recommend it to anyone, be you a local or visiting from another country. I personally felt that it was lovely feeling like a Tourist for a few hours.

You can see from the photos in the gallery below that we began our morning with tea and scones in the church followed by the arrival of the ‘City Sightseeing Belfast Official Tour Bus’ to whisk us off through Titanic Quarter, City Centre and West Belfast.

Being open top, we were thankful for the dry weather! Our tour guide was very well informed and enlightened us with many a historical fact, whilst keeping it current – my personal favourite was his spin/explanation of the word ‘fleg’

So thank you Christine and her ever loyal team – you know who you are – for all the planning and effort that really paid off. Finally thank you to everyone who came along you all really helped make the day a success.
