NEWS

Annual Churchyard Clean-up will be held on Monday 23 March starting at 6.00 pm. If you are able to spare an hour or two that evening it would be really appreciated as the more helpers there are, the easier is the task. Please bring garden rakes and wheel barrows if you have them. Once the clean-up has been done the mowers can start their summer grass cutting which makes the churchyard look so much neater. Again if anyone can spare an hour or so on Monday evenings through the summer to help Chris and his team with this work, it would again be very much appreciated.

 

The Choir is recruiting! We are looking for trebles (boys and girls), sopranos, altos, tenors and basses. Please talk to Mike Wilcock, the Organist and Choirmaster for further details. We practice on Wednesdays from 7 – 8 pm.

 

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

Wednesday 11 March This year the Lent Study will be held jointly with Mellor Methodist Church.  Titled "Magnificent Jesus" it will be a bible study looking at Jesus' "I Am" sayings in John's Gospel.  Meetings will be on Wednesdays in Lent starting at 7.15pm at Mellor Methodist Church and will be jointly led by Rev’d. Albert Gayle, Rev’d Geoffrey Peddie and Amma Sue.  This is a wonderful opportunity to study God's word in company with our Christian brothers and sisters from the other churches in our United Benefice so please do make it a firm date in your diary.

 

Don't worry if you can't make all the meetings - just come to as many as you can! There's a poster at the back of church and in the porch with all the details.

 

Sunday 22 March Passiontide Reflections A devotional service of readings, hymns and music for congregation and choir at 6.30 pm.  We have invited parishioners from Balderstone and Samlesbury to join us.

If you wish to contribute anything to the notices please send an email to Chris Davis at chrisdavis256@gmail.com by Thursday evening.
