Amma Sue - October 2014

Dear Friends 

Did you know that there are about 80 million Anglicans worldwide? That the Church of England has a membership of 25 million and that about 2 million of them attend church every Sunday? That the Northern Province, of which we are a part, has a total of 12 dioceses? That our own diocese has 253 churches? That our deanery of Whalley now has 29 churches? Taken all together that’s an awful lot of Christian sisters and brothers (and that’s not taking into account our sisters and brothers of other denominations!) When we take a look at the wider picture then we can see that there’s so much more to being part of the Church than simply being part of Balderstone, Mellor or Samlesbury. 

Of course with so many people being part of this great family it’s not always easy to get together to meet on a regular basis. Back in the Summer we had the Diocesan Summer Festival where we had the opportunity to meet with other members of parishes – and a good time was had by all. This Autumn we have another chance to for a ‘grand shindig’ this time along with the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu. He’ll be visiting the diocese for two day in November – 4th and 5th - and as part of that visit the Diocese have organised a grand get together at Blackpool Tower Ballroom on 4th November beginning at 7.30pm. The event is to be called “Light in the Darkness” and the Archbishop will be speaking, among other things, about his own experience of growing up in Uganda during the dictatorship of Idi Amin.  Archbishop John has personally invited every member of every parish in the Diocese to the event – and that means YOU! 

It would be good to have as many people as possible, especially from our United Benefice to go along and fill the Ballroom – so pop the date in your diary now. I’m sure that we will be discussing this in the PCCs and so watch this space for more information! 

With every blessing

Amma Sue.
