Have you heard the news?
It is the best!
Meth Church House remembered us in the west
and they declared they’d launch their Roadshow Scheme
right here in Cornwall— what a dream!
2nd November at TMC (Truro Methodist Church).
There is no charge - get in for free.
Open all day from ten ’till four
It’s great for young and old I’m sure.
Discover all the amazing ways
That faith is shared and so is praise,
From London out across Connexion
In all the world in every section.
Discover what our churches do
Gather ideas and try a few.
There’re stalls to see and things to try
And stories to hear as you wander by.
And presentations of all kinds.
Do come! it sure will blow your minds!
Get your circuit all enthused
And come along and share your views.
It’s know you do a lot of stuff
But it’s never going to be enough
’Till everyone in God’s great world
Has seen the Gospel flag unfurled
Knows what is done in Christ’s great name
And does their best to do the same.
(And if this doggerel isn’t fun
come to the show and thump me one!)
