WMC: November 2017
First "All We Can" Partner Church Donation:
Church members and friends should be aware that Wantage Methodist Church has become, for a year, an "All We Can" Partner Church.
"All We Can" is the operating name of the Methodist Relief & Development Fund and our signing up to become a "Partner Church" involves a commitment to fundraise a minimum of £1,000 over the year for life-saving work across the world.
This year, being a Partner Church will involve us in journeying with a community in Zimbabwe and we will receive regular news and messages from the community. This is somewhat akin to the "Second Mile" projects that our church has worked on in the past.
The church will have a number of fund raising activities over the year but, as a start, you may be pleased to know that the profits from Sunday lunches from October 1st to December will be sent to All We Can, and we have just sent a cheque for £362 from the three October Sunday lunches.
