Keith Underhill: June 2015
Over the past few months we have welcomed a number of people into membership of Alton Methodist Church, which is always a good reason for celebration!
Glenda Bentley was received into Church Membership during our shared GAP service on Pentecost Sunday.
Madeleine Womball was received into Church Membership during a special service held in the chapel at The Lawn in Holybourne, with Revd Andrew Micklefield and Revd Helen Jesty also participating.
David and Miriam Weston, Norma Barton and Debby Bridger were transferred into Church Membership from other denominations.
We say welcome to them all and assure them of our continued love, thoughts and prayers.
If anyone else is interested in finding out more about being a Church Member — please have a word with Keith
