On Friday 30th September (7pm) we’re having a Harvest Supper together at St. Michael’s, celebrating and giving thanks for God’s good provision!
Please sign up in one of our church buildings this weekend or call our Parish Office to let us know you’re coming! (It will help us to cater better!)
In the Bible (particularly the Old Testament) there is lots of provision made for looking backwards and forwards, marking times, days and seasons. This is because it’s a wonderful thing to do. Harvest is such a time – and if we think more often about God’s goodness we will see more and more of that goodness.
Please do come and share in an evening of thankfulness
Men’s Breakfast | Saturday 17th | 8.45am @ St. Michael’s
We’re looking forward to a great time on Saturday morning sharing a good old cooked breakfast together (all with our own portions!) and hearing from Steve James.
Steve James was vicar of St Andrew’s Bebington and later Holy Trinity Platt in Manchester. Before either of these he did ministry in Canada where he established something of a reputation as a Christian song writer and singer. He plays the guitar.
He and his wife Rachel have retired to the Wirral where they remain active in ministry, including serving on the Word Alive and Keswick Convention teams.
Amongst other things, Steve will be speaking particularly about a bicycle crash in Manchester which left his daughter very badly injured, and how he and his family have lived and worked through the pain of this, and the importance of knowing God’s during this time.
Memorial Service for the life and faith of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
CHRIST CHURCH BARNSTON AT 3.00PM, SUNDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER
We are deeply sorry to hear the sad news of the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. We thank God for her long life of service, her hard work and love for all throughout the UK, the commonwealth and world – but especially for her deep faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Her race has been completed and she is now at peace with Him.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her grieving family, our nation and the global community, as we all come to terms with the loss of such a loved and unique servant. We are consoled by Her Majesty’s confidence in the steadfast reign of our Lord, who through the merits of His Son, Jesus Christ, brings all His people to share in the kingdom and crown that endures forever
