Compassion UK: Paloma when we agred to support herBack in January 2020 Wellspring decided, as a church, to sponsor six children through Compassion UK, a Christian organisation that provides education and support for vulnerable children in families throughout the world. We decided to choose a boy and a girl from the three continents of Asia, Africa and the Americas.

We agreed to support

  • Elisha a girl aged 6 from Tanzania
  • Alexi a boy aged 6 from Rwanda
  • Orun a boy aged 9 from Bangladesh
  • Danuja a girl aged 5 from Sri Lanka
  • Marco a boy aged 8 from Peru
  • Paloma a girl aged 8 from Brazil.

We get regular updates and letters from these children, which we share with the congregation. It is sometimes quite overwhelming to see the change in the children over such a short time.

A case in point is little Paloma, shown in the picture above as she was when we first started to support her.

To begin Key Green’s Harvest Thanksgiving weekend Biddulph Male Voice Choir delighted a packed audience with their beautiful harmonies.  Songs ranged through the African Prayer, The Lord’s Prayer, An American Trilogy, Fields of Athenry and many others.

Hilltop reopens: Rev Yanyan preaching

We celebrated with Hill Top Methodist Church when they reopened their doors after renovations were completed following an outbreak of dry rot.  Months of hard work have taken place and after 4½ months months of being closed, worship and praise were ringing out again, with the door open so that all could hear.

Hill Top flower festivalThe Flower Festival weekend was a fabulous success. The theme of 'Kings and Queens' sparked a lot of interest as our arrangers used not only our own Kings and Queens for inspiration, but also monarchs from the bible.

The flower arrange-ments were wonderful, showing a lot of flair and imagination. We welcomed guests and viewers on Saturday, Sunday and Monday afternoons from all over the area, some travelling quite some miles. After viewing they enjoyed tea, coffee and a wonderful selection of cakes.

welcome to Rev Yanyan

The Circuit Welcome Service for our new minister, Revd Yanyan Case, was hosted by Biddulph Methodist Church. The singing was full and tremendous, the warmth of the welcome tangible, and the message preached by Revd Helen Kirk our District Chair was exceptional.
