Quinquennial Inspection

During the recent quinquennial inspection of the church an outbreak of dry rot was discovered in the boiler house. The full extent of the problem is not yet known and is being investigated by the church’s architects.

Sunday School Olympics crafts

The fantastic art and craft work the children did will be on display in Mellor Hairdressers for the next few weeks. Please go and have a look and tell everyone else.


What do we come to church for?  This is a very important question which as individuals we need to address.

Yes we come to be with friends and to meet them, but uppermost in our minds has to be that we are here to give thanks to God for that goes on in our lives, and to meet Him in the sacrament.

Please would you remember that others around you like to be quiet and still and not hear others’ conversations.  This applies not only before the start of worship but also especially following communion.  This is a time for reflection and to sing the communion hymn.  There is plenty of time at the end of the worship to catch up with friends.
