“On October 10th 1907 seven women met with the Rev. F. Flint and a unanimous decision was made to commence weekly meetings for women.” So the Women’s’ Fellowship of Yarm Methodist Church began and has been holding weekly meetings ever since.
By 1914 there were 81 members, with an average attendance of 31. In 1923 the members grew bulbs, and in February held a bulb show. As part of our centenary celebrations the ladies planted bulbs in the church garden which we hope will flower for years to come as an annual reminder of our ongoing fellowship. In 1935 the first trip was organised, to Whitby and Scarborough.
Meetings continued throughout both world wars, and are still held weekly on Monday afternoons at 2pm. There is a long unbroken history of fellowship, service and worship and we thank God for that.
We have a wide variety of speakers, ranging from devotional afternoons to flower arranging demonstrations. In the summer we still organise a trip out, and during the summer break have occasional meetings in members’ homes.
Meetings are held on Mondays at 2pm in the New Room.
A warm Welcome awaits all ladies who would like to join us for fellowship, a chat and chat and a cup of tea.
