Traidcraft is an important part of Wesley's mission activity. There is a Traidcraft stall appproximately once a month on a Sunday morning.

Through our Traidcraft links, we have supported a project to provide Amankwatia village, Ghana, with its own water borehole and pump, and a new toilet block.

Now Junior Church are raising further funds for the village, including the purchase of a computer for school. They will hold a cake sale on Easter Sunday morning.

Lent - a time for reflection and renewal.
Morning worship during Lent will be based on the psalms.
18 March: Fifth Sunday in Lent
Psalm 51: Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

The heavens declare the glory of God: the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Their voice goes out into all the Earth; their words to the ends of the world.
Psalm 19

Our Junior Church drew some illustrations of this psalm.

Psalm 19 1

Psalm 19 2

 Psalm 19 3

Norman, a member of Wesley, was commissioned as a Street Pastor recently - supported at the service by several others from the church. The work of street pastors is continuing to grow and is a real blessing to the town.
