NEWS

Blackburn Food Bank

The Food Bank is experiencing ever increasing demands and is finding it increasingly difficult to supply desperately needed groceries and other food items. We have a collection point in the back of Church for donations of food, cleaning and household items, etc. which is regularly delivered to the Food Bank. In the light of this increasing demand could we encourage those who already contribute to consider increasing their food etc. donations a little - and those who haven't contributed to consider doing so - no donation is too small.

 

 

Harvest at Balderstone We have been invited to share the Harvest Festival at St Leonard's Church, Balderstone on Thursday 2 October at 7.30 pm.  Please could you sign your name on the list in the Narthex if you would like to attend the Harvest Supper in Balderstone school and indicate if you need transport.

 

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

Wednesday 1, 8, 15 & 22 October “O LORD, HEAR MY PRAYER…” Do you ever wonder what all this praying stuff is about?  Not sure that you are getting your praying “right”?  Getting bored with your usual way of praying?  Then this is for you!  Four meetings exploring what prayer is and experiencing some different ways of praying at BALDERSTONE ST LEONARD’S CHURCH from 7.00 to 8.00 pm.
