New Term Card available with details of our services and The Hub for the summer term

Our new term card with details of the term to come is now live on this website. It can be found under the WHAT’S ON menu from our homepage or by clicking here.
In short, our Sunday services will focus on the book of Ruth for 4 weeks, before turning to Paul’s letter to the Galatians running until the 18th of July before we start our Summer holidays programme.
At the Hub, in order to capitalise on the helpful Prayer Course held in the Spring Term we begin (from April 29th) online with Prayer Revisited before starting a series called Rejoice from June 6th. This is a series of carefully planned events which are designed to fit in with the easing of the Coronavirus restrictions to enable us to spend time together again as a church family including walks prior to June 17th before a healing service, quiz and praise night once restrictions are completely lifted. What a joy it will be to sing again together!


Mission Partner Update | Christians against Poverty – Wirral

Our support of CAP contributes towards the role of Jess Parkhouse as a Debt Coach working in Wirral. Please see below for a short update from Jess about the work she is involved in:
Since my initial training in the summer, I have been very active learning about CAP as an organisation, about CAP Wirral, and my role as a Debt Coach. I am busy helping clients through the three-appointment process that enables them to move towards a route out of debt.
We have just delivered Easter gift bags to all of our clients and ‘The Real Easter Egg’ to all of the children. I feel very privileged to be part of such an amazing debt relief charity that helps people on the road to financial freedom, and to able to give them the opportunity to hear about the life changing love of Jesus. Thank you so much for your support and prayers!

Pastoral Letter at Easter from Rev. Chris Murphy

Amongst an update on his upcoming paternity leave, Chris writes about how Easter shapes us as people, even during a pandemic:

“We are an Easter people and Alleluia is our song”.

“My hope, as we emerge from lockdown, is that we will be the people God has called us to be. That we will be an Easter people. That we will, whatever our circumstances, be able to rejoice and cry “Alleluia.” And as we rejoice at the ending of lockdown; at the arrival of Spring; at the incredible roll out the Covid vaccine; and most importantly, at the resurrection of Jesus, we will be able to testify to the goodness of God.”

Church Services filling up

We long for the day when we see more people than seats during our services again. At present the bookings for our services are increasing and the need to book your seats has unfortunately become a necessity.
If you would like to attend any of our church services, please contact Cecelia on either, cecelia@barnston.info or, 0151 6482404 by 12 noon on the preceding Thursday. Over the past few weeks church services have been getting busier and we may move to a rotation system soon.

Even if you have been attending weekly please still book in every week since we really don’t want to have to turn people away on a Sunday. The capacity at Christ Church is 21 and the capacity at St Michael’s is 45.
