PLATEN & CHALICE DONATED IN MEMORY OF THE REVD. AND MRS JOYCE SAINSBURY

THE REVD. EDWARD AND MRS JOYCE SAINSBURY

 

Tom Leach, the son-in-law of the late Edward and Joyce Sainsbury kindly donated and presented a Platen and Chalice to Radford Road Church as a permanent reminder of Edward and Joyce’s loving and caring work at Radford Road. The Platen and Chalice will be used when Communion is held at Wednesday Worship. This gift was felt to be very appropriate as Edward and Joyce were involved and very encouraging when Wednesday Worship was first started.
The ceremony took place during morning service which was led by the Revd. Andy Laird on July 5th. 2015.

FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE SUMMER GARDEN PARTY 2015

FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE GARDEN PARTY 2015

 

To conclude the Summer programme an afternoon tea party was held at 2, Derwent Ckose. Unfortunately the sky was overcast and so the garden was viewed from the conservatory.

Everyone enjoyed the chatter and companionship and one or two members ventured outside to talk to the resident tortoise and  admire the garden flowers.

Ruth took these photos of members during the afternoon.

On Sunday July 19th we welcomed Geoffrey and Patricia Batstone and  members of their family and friends as they renewed their wedding vows following their Golden Wedding celebrations. They were married at this church when it was known as Trinity Methodist Church, and wanted to return for this special weekend of celebrations.

Patricia was called to be a Local Preacher at this church before her marriage and still continues in this capacity today.
