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.
Our next Christianity Explored course starts on Tuesday 25th September 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.

‘Harambee’ - Uganda August 2018 - Presentation Evening
Following their recent inspirational yet humbling mission trip to South West Uganda, the ‘Harambee’ Uganda Team would like to invite you to join them on Thursday 13th September for an opportunity to learn more about the trip, hear personal reflections from members of the team and consider the development of the ‘Harambee’ partnership going forward.
The presentation will take place in St John's, commencing with refreshments at 7.30pm, prior to an 8pm start. It would be a real encouragement to see many of you and your friends there to join with members of the other churches who were represented on the team. Please feel free to ask us if you require any further information.
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.
Sign-up sheets are now available for people to volunteer for various roles:
- setting up (Sunday 30th September)
- helping the children in their groups and to prepare refreshments (Monday 1st to Friday 12th October, daytime and evening)
- welcoming visitors on Saturday 6th October
- taking down on Friday 12th October
There is also a list of several props that we would like to borrow, so please have a look and put your name down if you can lend us something.
Church Working Party - 22nd September
There will be a working party on Saturday 22nd September from 9am to 12pm. We’ll aim to complete a number of mainly external jobs including tidying up the grounds and weeding paths. If the weather is bad, the tasks will be indoor ones. No particular skills are required, just enthusiasm!
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.
