Activities July to December 2017

Sunday 6 August at Wesley’s Chapel 

Leslie Griffiths preached to a packed house on his retirement after 21 years as Superintendent Minister of Wesley’s Chapel. 

Leslie and Margaret processed from the chapel at the end of the service.


We, his ecumenical friends had been invited to share a farewell lunch with the congregation. This was a grand affair served in the chapel garden in the sunshine. It was good to also meet our friends from St Joseph’s and Jewin Welsh Chapel. Leslie has been a good friend to us all and we wish him and Margaret a happy retirement.   

Sunday 9 July -  Waste not, want not!

Christine offered to cook lunch for us on Sunday 9 July. We didn’t really go foraging – although Christine picked up bruised fruit and vegetables from Ridley Road Market. We asked people to look in the back of their fridges and cupboards for forgotten-about food. There was a box outside the Rectory front door for donations and Marianne saved us packets of pulses past their sell-by date, cheese, bread and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste.

She made us a real feast – including a daring combination of banana with peanut butter and some delicious grilled cheese - which we enjoyed in the Rectory garden. Thank you, Christine, for suggesting this and making it happen.
