Parish Magazine – October 2021

Putting together this month’s edition of the #Meltham Parish magazine has been a joy to do, seeing the adverts for groups starting up again and especially the upcoming Alpha courses, a place to explore the Christian faith and to ask questions (see back page for details). Please do feel free to attend some or all of them, they are all Covid aware. There’s options to either attend in person or online via Zoom.

As we step into Autumn we asked for photos to show off our world around us and you didn’t disappoint!
Thank you to Alison Whiteley for creating this months Magazine covers. If you have any more photos please do send them into the address below so we can include them next month too.

Thank you to all who have contributed this month. The next deadline for the much needed contributions will be Monday 18th October 2021. Please send them via: melthamparishmagazine@gmail.com or via the vicarage letterbox. (150 Huddersfield Rd, HD9 4AL)

Church Yard Working Groups – Helme Church – Sat 25th Sept: 9:30-12:30

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Church Yard Working Groups are continuing the work around the #Meltham Parish on Saturday 25th September at Helme Church where we will shall be grass cutting, strimming and bush clearing – Saturday morning from about 09.30 to 12.30 but even if you can only spare an hour, it all helps to make the job easier – the more, the merrier!

Feel free just to turn up, for all or a part of the session. We have a good chat and a laugh as well as work. Cake is usually involved at some point too! As we are outside, it is always weather dependent, so rain coats or sun hats required!
