In 2003, when Barry took on the Superintendency at Two Gates he said the job could not be done alone and so deacons were elected; Joyce Willetts, Doreen Ward, Moryth Fletcher, Val Tromans, Audry Hill, Carol Tibbetts, Ann Bailey, Maureen Cole, Jean Willetts, Rhoda Willetts, Tony Cartright and Neal Clarke. Also elected was our Secretary Mrs Sheila Perry; each one of these plays a part in running the chapel. Sheila Perry organises most of our events while Maureen Cole helps Barry with weddings and conducts all of the christenings.
We have our lovely looking Christmas tree each year thanks to Neal Clarke’s artistic touch. Our deacons contribute their time to Coffee Mornings, the Christmas Fayre, Book Sales and the many other events we have. Also, when the chapel needs a good clean its all hands on.
As the years have passed we have had new entrants into the chapel. We now have a Sunday school which is called RUN RAGGED that is organised by Debbie Southall and her daughter Amy. They have extra events like hunting for eggs at Easter and on Mothering Sunday they have a Tea Party.
Trevor Taylor is our handy man. He helps Barry moving tables, putting partitions across and any thing that needs a strong arm, we are very grateful for his help. Also, David Mann puts up all the fairy lights at Christmas and if needed helps at any time. Barry only has to phone.
Halesowen Brass Band rehearse at the chapel on Tuesday evenings. They give a concert or two during the year. And, of course, they play for our Christmas Carol service which brings in a congregation of over 200 each year. We have our ladies choir that consists of ladies who came to the Sunday school many years ago. They sing at Anniversary, Harvest and Christmas services and they number 15 in all. When our Coffee Morning got going the numbers attending got larger. We thank every one who supports us on the last Friday of every month.
Ken and Glenyce Greve come from Kidderminster. Ken is the man who persuades people
to buy raffle tickets (he is good at persuading).
We thank everyone who supports our Chapel and the events we put on. Without your
support we would not be able to do the good we do.
