2017 - Christian Aid

This year's event was held as usual at Wickhambrook Methodist Church as a Sunday afternoon joint service at 3pm and was organised by Ruth Seal on behalf of Wickhambrook Churches Together.

This service followed a successful Bring and Buy and coffee morning on the previous Saturday morning between 10am and Noon.
There was a great time of fellowship enjoyed by villagers and friends from other local churches and around £150 was raised for the work of Christian Aid

Those taking part in worship were Rev Bryn Singleton, Ivan Peacock and Jenny Turner. Beryl Peacock, playing the organ, accompanied the congregation.

In this 60th anniversary year of Christian Aid since its founding in the aftermath of the Second World War when it provided help and support for survivors, casualties and displaced persons after the devastation caused, Christian Aid Volunteer Chris Wilkes gave a moving address illustrating with actual cases how that even after 60 years they are still working with refugees around the world. They are still feeding the hungry, providing safe places to live for displaced individuals and families journeying from rejection, hostility, fear and trauma to a possible refuge after making hard choices and life changing decisions about leaving their homes. Fleeing from violence and persecution to embark on journeys into the unknown and then due to political issues becoming pawns stuck in a desperate limbo unable to move forward or back.

It is tempting to think that the 65 million refugees throughout the world is such a vast issue, so what difference can be made by our small fundraising efforts but by helping through Christian Aid vital resources can be directed to the areas of most pressing need.

Chris explained the variety of work being done every day and encouraged us all to keep positive and supportive as Christian Aid and its local partners around the world have helped millions over the past six decades and will continue to do so as long as there are people in need.

This was a most uplifting service reaffirming the worth and positive effects from collecting their immediately recognisable red envelopes, during this week, across the country for this very worthwhile and vital organisation.

A final total for Christian Aid's work will be made known later.
Grateful thanks are expressed to all those taking part in the service and especially to Wickhambrook Churches Together for organising the event and the Methodist's for hosting such an important evening for this global organisation.

2006 - 25th Anniversary

The Harmony Hour ladies met in Wickhambrook Methodist Church to celebrate their 25th Anniversary.

They had a news desk covering reports of their opening meeting and others with photos from over the past years. There was a list detailing all their Birthday Speakers and organisations the group has had and helped over the last 25 years.

There were beautiful displays depicting their “special afternoons” their first was the Queen’s Golden Jubilee following this was a floral extravaganza and then a Teddy Bear’s Picnic. The most recent were a nautical afternoon and this special anniversary event. All the ladies helped to stage the displays by bringing their treasures and memorabilia including items of silverware and glass.

There was a stand of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee and another of their own silver weddings with a wide variety of different objects from cards, tea towels, jewellery, beautiful silver teapots, candlesticks and candelabras through to commemorative stamps, dishes and even silver wedding shoes. Many floral arrangements were in place around the church to enhance the displays adding to the overall stunning effect.

All the ladies are thanked for helping to decorate the church and producing such a wonderful display on this very special occasion.

Mrs Sylvia Tickner had made a beautiful card, which all signed as a keepsake of the day. Mrs Jenny Turner had made a luxury sponge cake and had iced it and decorated it with her own silver wedding ornament and Mrs Beryl Peacock had made a fruit cake iced and inscribed with “Harmony Hour 25” on it. Both of these went down very well at the end of the meeting with their usual cup of tea.

The ladies Birthday Rally will be held on October 10th 2006 at 2.30pm when their guest speaker will be the Rev Alan Ashton from Newmarket.

They look forward to the future continuing to meet together and any ladies are very welcome to join them at any future meetings.

2004 - Harvest Festival

On the first Sunday in October we once again came twice to Church to thank God for his goodness to us for another years harvest of all things gathered in all year round.

Two good Services were held. In the morning Ken Brown from Soham brought with him the Soham Rose as remembrance of the lives of Holly and Jessica. To remind us that from out of this awful evil act there sprung this pure and beautiful English Rose. A symbol that God is in control. As Ken said He still sends all forms of weather over which we have no control. We should be thankful. The evening service taken by Brian Ellicott from Haverhill was also good. He reminded us of the free harvest from the hedgerows. The United Reformed Church closed and joined us for both services. The church was beautifully decorated with flowers, fruit, vegetables and corn.

On the following Tuesday our Harvest Supper was held in the Memorial Social Centre, when sixty-one sat down to a lovely meal, followed by a quiz organised by Stan Bates.

We are very grateful to all that gave and helped in any way on both occasions. Too many to name. Also all of you who came to support us. Thank you.
