Max West Social GroupMay 28, 2012
21 interested parties attended an initial meeting on 6th February, held with a view to forming a social group, and the Max West Social Group took off from there. The objectives and format of the group were discussed and agreed at this first meeting and these can be summarised as follows.
The group intends to organise a variety of events targeting different sections of the congregation in order to create a greater awareness of our Church within the community. It was also felt that the group should facilitate fellowship within our congregation and to visitors. It was agreed that the group would operate without a formal committee but smaller groups will be formed to be responsible for different aspects of the group’s work. The names of all members will be intimated in a future issue of Contact.
The first event to be organised by Max West Social Group was an Easter Sunday Brunch after the morning service on 8th April 2012. Approximately 90 people enjoyed lunch with a choice of soups and rolls filled with sausages. 18 children took part in activities in the Church Hall after attending the earlier part of the service and they enjoyed a ‘hunt’ for Easter goodies after the conclusion of the service. All feedback to date has indicated that the Brunch was a huge success.
Any ideas for future events to be considered by the Group will be gratefully received.
Our next planned event is a Beetle Drive/Quiz on 9th June to coincide with a visit by two representatives of Mathia Church in Kenya.
