EKMC Spring Annual General & Council Meeting 
Wednesday 11th March, 1.30pm. 

Fellowship Meeting Ten ladies met (and with some apologies) on the 19th February,  to discuss starting a fellowship group and what format it should take.  We first thought about all the benefits of meeting together and decided it was something we all wanted to do. As well as looking at various books and study courses we also  watched a DVD, listening to the American Evangelist Joyce Meyer. 

After discussion we came up with the following… The ‘Fellowship Group’ will meet monthly on the second Friday of each month, 10am – 12noon.

It will generally fall into two halves.  We shall have coffee/tea to begin, followed by 3/4 hour ‘Reading and Reflecting’ on Scripture. Another refreshment break, then more informal chat and maybe a craft, finishing with a shared light lunch for those who are able, or would like, to stay. 

This is all very much flexible and we shall see how the fellowship develops. It may be after a time people would like to meet more frequently than just once a month.

Our ‘Reading and Reflecting’ intends to be different each time e.g. looking at a passage of Scripture, studying a theme or watching a DVD. 

The first Fellowship Group will be on Friday 13th March, 10am, when we shall read and reflect on Ruth.  Following dates for your diary are; 10th April, 8th May, 12th June, 10th July.   The group is open to anyone who would like to come and share in a time of drawing closer to God and each other. Please feel free to stay all morning or come along to one session. For further details please ask Penny, Sally or Eileen.
