Bring & Share lunches – future dates
We will be having Bring & Share lunches on 20th October, 1st March and 17th May. Please put these dates in your diary.
If you feel relatively new to St John's, our church lunches are a good opportunity to meet and get to know others.
Christianity Explored is an informal 7-week course for anyone who would like to investigate Christianity, see what the Bible really says or ask any questions that they have.
A new Christianity Explored course started last week but it's not too late to join; Tuesdays at 8pm in St John's Church Centre.
Looking at Mark's gospel, the course explores who Jesus is, why he came, and what it means to follow him.

The Fisherman's Tale
We are delighted to confirm that we will be hosting Peter and Julie Fraser, from Bible Encounter Trust, in June 2020, for their new story trail, 'The Fisherman's Tale'. As with their previous story trails, this will be a fully immersive experience for our local schools, telling the story of Peter the Disciple.
We will, of course, need a considerable volunteer work force for this event to run smoothly, so we would like to give you some dates for your diary now. Set-up will be on 13th, 14th, 15th & 16th June. Schools and other groups will be visiting in the daytime and evenings from Wednesday 17th until Friday 26th June. We will also be open to the public on Saturday 20th June. Take-down will be on the afternoon and evening of Friday 26th June, and during the day on Saturday 27th June.
Please pray for Teresa as she sends out invitations to the schools in September and keep a look out in the notices for more information about how you can help nearer the time. Thank you.
Churchyard Grass Cutting
Many people have commented on the state of St John's churchyard, in particular the very long grass. The church is acutely aware of this problem: it has an impact on the appearance of our village and causes distress to families visiting graves.
However, the churchyard is the responsibility of Cheshire West and Cheshire Council (CWAC), not the church.
