Alec Ham, our curate, and Peter Chamberlin (from Rock Ferry and New Ferry) will be ordained on Saturday 2nd June, at 7pm, in St John’s Church. Bishop Rod Thomas will be taking the service. Please put the date in your diaries now, so you can come and support Alec.
It would be wonderful to serve cakes for the refreshments after the service, so if anyone is able to make a cake and bring it on the evening, that would be great.
A Taste of Harvest
During the first two weeks of October, we will be running an event to celebrate Harvest, and all our local schools will be invited. The format of the event will be similar to the replacement Easter story trail that we ran a year ago.
Make, Taste & See
"Make, Taste & See" is an opportunity to drop into church during the school holidays. It's open for all to drop in anytime from 10am until 12 noon. There will be coffee, cake, craft and film clips.
Come just once or come every time, stay a while or pop in for a bit. Make, Taste & See is ideal for families with primary and pre-school aged children, but it is open for people of all ages to come into our church and have a drink and a chat.
The dates for 2018 are listed below:
- Monday 28th May
- Monday 30th July
- Monday 6th August
- Monday 13th August
- Monday 20th August
- Monday 29th October
Time to pray
We have decided to continue our prayer meetings until at least May. Most meetings are for 20 minutes and the aim has been to choose times that will suit everyone. The meetings start promptly and end on time.
All the prayer meetings are in the Eddowes Room in the church unless stated otherwise. Please enter directly using the vestry door opposite the vicarage, except for Sunday when the church is open.
- Monday - 4pm
- Wednesday - 8pm (Prayer Fellowship or Housegroup Meeting). No meeting in the Eddowes Room
- Thursday - 9.30pm
- Friday - 6.30am
- Saturday - a virtual prayer meeting using a Facebook or Twitter post published at 8am. No meeting in the Eddowes Room
- Sunday - 9.30am
All are welcome and, if you have any questions, please contact the office.
