The Nativity Retold … a seasonal treat

Last Sunday the family’s and friends of Mossley were treated to our annual Sunday School Nativity. Well done to every child who took part. There’s always a few laughs and hiccups along the way but as Alan put it “it’s the perfect way to bring us the reality of Christmas by retelling through the eyes of children”. Thank you to all the Sunday School teachers and helpers who worked hard in pulling another great success out of the hat! Merry Christmas everyone!

RETRO ‘Youth’ Club …taking a trip down memory lane

Great FUN had by all who braved the stormy weather to come out (and in some cases dress up for the occasion) to the monthly RETRO Senior Youth Club.

Music filled the recreational hall where anyone who wanted a competitive challenge took part in badminton, table tennis …and dare I say it a ‘gentler’ approach to volley ball.

Then upstairs to the coffee bar and banter… followed by a boogie. Well done to the Events Team! (click images to enlarge).

Welcome to our ‘Retro’ senior youth club, meeting the first Friday in every month. ‘Retro’ youth club is open to anyone in our church wishing to recreate their youth in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.  We have loads of activities, including badminton and table tennis or if you just want to sit and listen to the music from back in the day, have a coffee or hot chocolate and chat.
We meet again on Friday, December 4th starting time 8.30pm finishing when we run out of steam!!

Mossley Methodist Ramblers …final walk for 2015

It was always going to be a wet day, and unbelievably we have been blessed with beautiful dry days up until yesterday’s walk THE CASTLE WARD BOUNDRY TRAIL – 8miles. However it being our last of the year I just didn’t have the heart to cancel.

We were drenched, and I may have muddled the route a little, but the group spirit was high and once again being blessed by creation and fellowship was the order of the day.

Well done everyone for pushing on through the weather. I must take this opportunity to thank you all who have joined us on any of these walks, every single person has added to the fun and success of the day. So I look forward to seeing you all out again in January 2016. (Ps it might be an idea to ask Santa for a pair of gaiters 😉)

Mossley Methodist Retreat 2015

A group of our church family returned for the second time to Glenada Newcastle last weekend, where we had wonderful teaching through visualisation and meditative prayer from Brid O’Hare …it is safe to say that we all slept better than expected that first night.

Newcastle is the perfect location to appreciate Gods creation. Our walk with HIM and Friendships have most certainly deepened.

See an over view of the weekend from the selection below (double click to see larger)

Down Time … tea and biscuits supplied by faithful servants. A thank you and goodbye to Brid. FUN night winners from Adelaide and Alan …priceless
Glenada_2015-4
Saturday down time .. some of the Ramblers drove to Dundrum and walked along Murlough Bay where they were treated to Gods beauty through creation. (ye that would be Tommy and Joe up the tree. They wanted to take the visualization of Zacchaeus into practice (or maybe they are just big kids)
