All the churches in the circuit are currently closed for worship and meetings as we play our part in reducing the spread of coronavirus. We shall look forward to welcoming you to our churches when the government guidelines allow us to open again.’
At Jersey Marine the first of the Bible studies to be held at the church was conducted by the Minister, Rev Kofi Amissah. A total of 8 people attended – one third of the congregation. The theme of the Bible Study is Knowing your Bible … and Why should we study.
Bible studies are held every 2 weeks on a Thursday Afternoon commencing at 2pm. The leaders are Rev. Kofi Amissah, Mel Robinson and Mark Jones. All are very welcome to share in this new initiative.
Ann retired recently from her post of organist, having completed 60 years service. The presentation was made by Mr Clem Raymond – a local preacher and lay worker in the Neath Port Talbot Methodist Circuit.
Ann was very apprehensive about the idea of a presentation, but she delighted us all by explaining how her mother had been asked by one of the church leaders if she would consent to Ann having organ lessons at the church’s expense. It seems that Ann had agreed to the lessons, but her mother insisted on paying for them!
When Ann began to play in public she was very nervous about getting the tempo correct, so the choir master sat with her near the organ and beat time on his leg to assist her.
Clem pointed out that it was fitting to make this tribute to her at the Harvest as we recognise God’s varying gifts to all.
