Flora introduced her knitting challenge – it’s the squares again! – she knows charities which are prepared to take completed blankets – or they could go to Jackie’s Inner Wheel charity, depending on how many we manage to make.
Use whatever colour wool you have. There are two possible designs:-
1) 4mm needles, double-knitting. Cast on one stitch and increase by one stitch at the beginning of every row until you have a total of 46 stitches. Then decrease by slipping one and knitting two together at the beginning of every row until you have a diamond 6 inches square.
2) 3mm needles, 3-ply. Cast on 22 stitches and keep knitting until the length is equal to the width.
Bring your squares to the next coffee morning – or we can store them in the vestry if you want to bring them to church.
At Eltham Park Methodist Church we have a range of rooms and halls for hire.
Please note that we do not take bookings for occasional events, such as parties.
Please contact our lettings officer, Jackie, on 07866 962032 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.

On Monday June 3rd we hosted a ‘Prayer labyrinth’ in our church as part of the ecumenical prayer initiative ‘Thy Kingdom come’. Labyrinths can be found in many historic churches all over the world. The aim is to encourage people of faith to set aside a short period of time to go on a spiritual journey of prayer. A labyrinth is simply a place to walk and pray. It gives you the freedom to walk around while focusing on God – and not worry about getting lost!
Our labyrinth (pictured), was made on the floor of our church vestibule. It is a simple walking path to the centre and then back out again. It has many turns, but unlike mazes, does not have dead ends.
On entering our labyrinth, the pilgrim came to a series of numbers on the path. These took the pilgrim to prayer stations outside the labyrinth where different aspects of prayer life were explored.
There was a steady flow of people from a number of people throughout the day. All who came said they found the prayerful atmosphere very helpful. Our local volunteers enjoyed it so much that we are already planning to repeat the exercise next year!
Our Cafe Services are held from time to time in the early evening in the Cafe at the back of the church.
Please refer to the Upcoming Services for details.

Eltham Park Methodist Church is a fine Edwardian building, with the original beamed roof and leaded windows, and an encircling balcony. It is in good repair and has modern lighting, heating, and comfortable seats. We like to welcome people from Eltham and round about to celebrate their important days such as baptisms and weddings in our much-loved church. Sadder occasions such as funerals are also part of what our church sees as being an important contribution to the life of our community.
