Thanks to you all for playing your part in making the Preston Faithful & Fruitful event a success; to those who prepared and took part in worship, to the workshop leaders and to all who attended and/or promoted the afternoon.  Grateful thanks to Neville, Mary and Peter and the folks at Ashton Methodist Church for their welcome, hospitality and assistance given in so many ways throughout the day.

We hope you enjoyed the event and found it worthwhile.  If you, or others who you know attended, have any feedback then please let us know as this will help when planning future District occasions.

Hungarian Orphanage Project

orphanage project

Chorley and Leyland Methodist Circuit launched a campaign to raise funds to support an orphanage in Teglas, Hungary which is close to the heart of Minister Rev Gyula Fiak. His former church in Hungary gave financial, practical and spiritual help to orphanages in the area.

Recognising a need, the circuit responded and fundraising for initial essentials was launched. Each church in the circuit was encouraged to find people willing to raise small amounts of £25 in creative and innovative ways.  As these small pledges materialised, the total continued to grow, providing funds to pay for essentials such as an industrial washing machine, cooking stove, beds and other furniture, blinds, carpets and curtains.

Below is a video produced by Rev Fiak following his visit to the Orphanage to see how the money raised has been spent.
