Wesley Guild Annual Garden Party 2011
WESLEY NETWORK AND GUILD HAVE ARRANGED TO HAVE JOINT MEETINGS FOR THE REST OF THIS YEAR.
Thursday 9 September 2021
Thursday 14 October 2021
Thursday 11 November 2021
Thursday 9 December 2021
all meetings to start at 2pm
It is intended that the first meeting will take the form of a Members Afternoon when hopefully we can all appreciate the sheer joy of being together and sharing a cuppa and a cake. There will, of course, be the usual devotional to open the meeting. This will also give us an opportunity to discuss our way forward. There will obviously be a lot of matters to be taken into consideration in accordance with the wishes of the membership.
It is possible that the Happy Wanderers vehicle may be available for a limited number. Please let us know if you require transport. Some of our non-Wesley members may not know yet that future meetings will take place in the Upper Hall now that the Lower Hall has been taken over by the exciting expansion of the Harrogate Homeless Project.
At last, we feel that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and we hope you are all as excited as we are that we shall soon be able to meet together in fellowship.
See you soon we hope!
Lynne and Shelagh
History of the Guild at Wesley Chapel Harrogate
It was announced in 1995 that ‘providing we can ‘get it off the ground’ we hope that we might be able to run a Wesley Guild during the coming winter months’.
It did ‘get off the ground’ and was at first called ‘Thursday Night at Eight’. However, this proved to be too much of a mouthful and it simply became ‘Guild’. Originally Guild met in the autumn and winter months. It became associated to The Wesley Guild, which was initially established by the Methodist Church over 100 years ago when concerns were raised about retaining young people in the Wesleyan Methodist Church.
