The Village Quiz This was held on Friday 13 February. Reverend Roland devised the questions as usual, and acted as Quizmaster. We had a raffle and a very busy bar.  A most enjoyable evening that produced a wonderful profit of £1126.80, our best ever result!  We must thank everyone who supported us before the event or on the night.  We couldn't have done it without you, and hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did.  (The Social & Fundraising Committee). 



Wednesday 25 February This year the Lent Study will be held jointly with Mellor Methodist Church.  Titled "Magnificent Jesus" it will be a bible study looking at Jesus' "I Am" sayings in John's Gospel.  Meetings will be on Wednesdays in Lent starting at 7.15pm at Mellor Methodist Church and will be jointly led by Rev’d. Albert Gayle, Rev’d Geoffrey Peddie and Amma Sue.

This is a wonderful opportunity to study God's word in company

with our Christian brothers and sisters from the other churches in our United Benefice so please do make it a firm date in your


diary. Don't worry if you can't make all the meetings - just come to as many as you can! There's a poster at the back of church and in the porch with all the details.

Wednesday 4 March The next FOSMS Meeting will take place in school at 7.30 pm.  All welcome.
