Welcoming the Dene Valley Congregation with an Asda Foundation Grant

Due to Covid-19 and other circumstances numbers for the congregations from our three local Methodist churches at South Church, Auckland Park and Coundon Grange have dwindled and the decision has been made to join all three together and for the Dene Valley Methodist Group.

We applied for the Empowering Local Communities Grant from the Asda Foundation to help them to celebrate coming together by holding an afternoon tea in the Coundon Grange Methodist Chapel.

The ladies and gentlemen I met there were over-whelmed and over the moon at the £500 they have been awarded which will cover the cost of the catering, entertainment and decorations for the event.
