Tool Library – Do you ever find yourself in need of a particular tool and don’t want to have to go out and buy something you’ll never use again? 

Do you have any tools that you’d be willing to lend to other church members? 

We are hoping to set up a Tool Library – this is simply a list of people who own certain tools and are willing to lend them to others for short periods.

For example, Andrew Battye has a device that allows you to transfer video recordings onto DVD and would be happy to lend it to anyone who has a use for it. 

So, to get things started, if you have any tools (kitchen, garden, or hi-tech) that you’d like to register with the Tool Library, please let Andrew Battye know. 

Computer Courses at the Mission have started again on Fridays.

Details are on the notice board in the Community Room 

Rehearsals have started for "The Coming of the King", our circuit services for Advent.

We would be glad to see more people join the choir, particularly tenors and basses.

Please come along to Holmfirth Methodist Church on Sunday 12th October at 2pm if you would like to join in.

If you are not able to make all the practices or services, that's the reality of life and we are flexible!

If you would like to find out more, please contact Naomi Sharp.
