Alton Webteam: June 2015
Message from June Atkins to everyone at Alton Methodist church
I joined the Methodist Church in Alton in 1954 and have never regretted it.
It's been such a friendly and caring church and I've made so many friends over the years.
I want everyone to know how much support Keith has given me in visiting me and giving me Communion and Carol and Norman (my daughter and son-in-law) who have had to see to all my affairs since August of 2014 and on my 90th birthday gave me a wonderful party for all the family and so many friends from church who have loyally visited me all through my illness. You have no idea how much it has meant to me and through it all God has been with me in all my good and bad days.
You can all be very proud of our church and what the members have done for so many people.
I am now living in a nursing home and am very happy and well looked after.
I can never do anything for the church now except pray for you all and want you all to know that I think of you every day.
God bless you all
