Living Nativity 2023

The weather stayed (almost) dry for our annual outdoor event on December 12th, bringing the story of the first Christmas to the streets of Ludlow, culminating with carol singing, hot chocolate and mince pies in the Castle. It demonstrated real team work by involving people from across the all churches in Ludlow, ably supported by the Ludlow Town Band.

Harvest 2023

A huge thank you to all who were involved in our Harvest weekend, held on 17th/18th October. It was very much a team effort. The meal on Monday evening was much appreciated and enjoyed by those who dined royaly!

The folk who decorated the Church so beautifully and of course the donors of the tins and produce. The teams who, on Monday first moved furniture and set up the tables and chairs. And then the second team who prepared the superb food, most of which was home baked, so that’s another hidden team, perhaps . A special thanks to the provider of the splendid gluten free meals. Although the meal was self-service, there was a team of 'watchers and hoverers' who made sure all had what they wanted and then prepared and served the tea and coffee. There was a team of washer uppers and clearers too. The final team were the furniture team augmented by those diners who could still move after their repast. Some folk served on more than one team so they deserve a special thanks, as do the small team of thinkers and organisers.

Produce was sold and £172 was raised to join the monies already collected for the plight of those in Morocco and Libya.

The tins given were taken to Ludlow Food Bank.

Farewell to Rev Kim Stilwell

Our previous minister, the Reverend Kim Stilwell, retired (or 'sat-down' as we say in the Methodist Church) in July.  He had been the Methodist Minister in Ludlow since 2015. His leaving was marked by a special Circuit service to a packed church.

Kim and Stella were presented with a picture of Ludlow. The view is from Whitcliffe Common, from where the annual early Easter Morning service is held each year.
