Summer of celebration at Cheadle Methodist Church

A SERIES of events to celebrate 50 years since the dedication of Cheadle Methodist Church starts this week.
The congregation at the church have organised a raft of special occasions to mark the anniversary of the new chapel building opening its doors in 1967.
A mix of social events and special services have been planned over the next four months to celebrate the occasion.
The programme of events starts on Friday 12th May with a Golden Years of the Sixties night, harking back to the years in which the church was built.
The current Cheadle Methodist Church was erected to provide a unified place of worship for the three Methodist congregations in the town, which had earlier joined together.
The united worshippers launched a fund raising appeal to cover the costs of a purpose-built church, which was opened with a Service of Dedication at 3pm on Saturday 26th August 1967.
Events begin with the Sixties night on Friday, which will include a buffet, quizzes, memories and music. Tickets are £7 and are available from Glenys on 753568 or Dorothy on 752417.
Later in the month, past Minister at the church, Rev David Watson, will conduct a morning service, with Anne Mosley giving a talk on the history and development of the church during the service, which is on Sunday 21st May at 10.45am.
These events will be followed by a Strawberry Tea in June as well as special service by past Ministers, the Rev Keith Jarvis and the Rev Michael Parrott, both in July, which will also see a barbecue with Cheadle Community Band.
The celebrations will culminate in a special anniversary weekend on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th August, which will include an array of photographs and memories on display in the church, refreshments served throughout, a special anniversary service conducted by the Rev Andrew Farrington and a celebratory meal in the church hall.
Details of all events will be available in a specially published leaflet and will also be covered in the Times & Echo.
