Flower festival

As part of this years Milford on Sea Art and Music festival, the flower arrangers of the churches in Milford and Everton combined with the Milford Floral art club to put on a flower festival called Inspirations at All Saints Church.

The Methodist exhibit is shown here and was entitled “The Rood Cross” and was prepared by Dorothy Williams and Irene Ellis and used recovered wood from the Pleasure Grounds in the village.

Over the course of the weekend there were 1168 people who visited the festival and they raised over £2,500 which is being split between Oakhaven Trust and All Saints Building Repairs Fund.

Posted by on 9:30 pm in News | Comments Off on Lymington to join with Milford

Our friends at Lymington Methodist Church are ceasing to worship at All Saints in Lymington at the end of December 2015 but we are delighted to announce that from the start of 2016 they will be joining with us at Milford on Sea to worship.  Whilst it is always sad when worship comes to an end at any location it does provide opportunities for the members at Lymington to make new friends and to develop new initiatives.  We are all looking forward to working and worshipping together in the New Year.

Fund Raising

Posted by on 2:37 pm in News | Comments Off on Fund Raising

Unfortunately bad weather conspired to limit the number of people attending our book sale   and taking advantage of our refreshments. However we managed to raise £61 and are very grateful to all those helped in any way to achieve that sum. We are hoping to have our next fund raiser during the Easter holidays when there may be more visitors and better weather in Milford. If you have any ideas on Fund Raising please don’t hesitate to tell one of the stewards.   Once again we are asking for your support for a BOOK SALE to be held in...
