New session of big favourite: Women's Fellowship share insights into their afternoons

The Thursday afternoon Women’s Fellowship continues to grow and, at one of the November meetings, we welcomed two new members. The Sharland Room makes an ideal venue for our weekly, open and ecumenical fellowship where we average 25 members. It is really good to share with ladies from St John’s Church, St Antony’s Church and the United Reformed Church as well as with those who have no particular church link      See full story...

Girlguiding

Although not a sponsored unit, 4th Broadstone Guides has always had a strong connection with Broadstone Methodist Church. Formed in March 1971 by Sheila La Riviere and registered in January 1972, the unit has always met on the premises (except when the church was being rebuilt)      See full story...

Open, welcoming and friendly afternoons

If you’d like to share fun, interesting and friendly afternoons, if you would like to travel the world from the comfort of the Sharland Room, and if you would like to feel you are supporting local and international charities... then join us on Thursday afternoons at Broadstone Women's Fellowship (times and subjects in the weekly Notices).      See full story...

Making Music: the band members' stories

The Worship Band makes a big contribution to worship at Broadstone Methodist Church. They give a strong and rhythmic lead to the singing at most of the regular family services, yet the seven members of the band are of a wide range of ages and of musical skills. Here are extracts from some of their stories.      See full story...

Saying it with flowers

Talents come in various forms. It could be painting, writing, music or craftwork etc, and one of the many talents enjoyed in Broadstone Methodist Church every week is that of flower arranging. We are fortunate to have several members in our congregation who have a skill in this area and every Sunday we are blessed with a new and vibrant arrangement at the front of the church.      See full story...

Busy hands

We all have our talents and I think the Knit and Natter Group are great at using theirs to help others. We have several ladies who are very good at either reading the knitting patterns or who are able to help others when they have gone wrong in their knitting. Then we have others who are able to come up with a different stitch or pattern to use so we don’t get bored with the projects.      See full story...

Knit and Natter Group

Over the last two years our group has come a long way from when we used to meet in the small porch room at the front of the church. When I originally had the idea of setting up the group, I thought we could meet perhaps once a month, with people bringing their own projects along, and that we would occasionally work towards charity projects.      See full story...

Creative Knit and Natter

Over the summer the ladies of Broadstone Methodist Knit and Natter Group turned their skills to a variety of projects. They are thinking ahead and started knitting and crocheting poppies for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, and as I write this they are going very fast and have proved popular.      See full story...

Where it all began

It’s almost 3 years since I started here at Broadstone Methodist Church and looking back the thing that first gave me a glimmer of hope that this ministry might prosper happened just before Christmas in my first year. It was the Young Ladies' Craft Group.      See full story...
