Shoeboxes

Tuesday 21st November 2017 9:49AM

At Illingworth Moor Methodist Church over 150 shoeboxes for Samaritan’s Purse were dedicated recently during a Sunday service led by Caroline Holt . They were donated by Illingworth Moor, Holy Nativity Mixenden, Vale Baptist Todmorden and Wesley Playhouse. During the service we watched a video of children receiving their boxes in the past and the joy on their faces was amazing. This year the boxes are going to Liberia.  A huge thank you to all those who gave shoeboxes, money towards their distribution and those who organised the collection of the boxes

What a fantastic night. The Cube Choir gave us a memorable evening of music and humour, ably led by their musical director Dorian Kelly. The forty strong choir sang superbly and the audience thoroughly enjoyed the programme of songs and poems. The weather was atrocious but this didn't deter people getting to our church and they weren't disappointed. Well done Cube Choir.

The Tuesday Fellowship group met at Illingworth Moor in October and Roz Greenwood welcomed Julie Taylor.
