Top News: 9.30am Service in Church building back for Sunday 6th December
I’m pleased to say that, following the end of the national ‘lockdown,’ our Church building will be open again for our 9.30am service for Sunday 6th December. As with the services before the lockdown, places need to be pre-booked with Elaine Stott (0161 439 5728) from Tuesday to Thursday. The pre-booking system enables us to fulfil the ‘Track and Trace’ requirements, as well as managing the best use of the space in our building in accordance with the ‘2 metre social distancing’ regulations. The 11am Zoom service will carry on as before, and if you would like to join us on Zoom, please email your details to me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
CCW Parish Magazine: Out now and on delivery!
The December / January edition of our magazine is now out and being delivered. As ever, we do want to thank Graham and Jean for all their hard work bringing the magazine together, and also to our willing team of deliverers. This edition’s front-cover was the winner of our ‘front-cover design’ competition which we run each year with Queensgate school – our congratulations to Emily Ormiston.
Yesterday at Church (Sunday 29th November 2020)
11am Zoom Service
Yesterday was the First Sunday of Advent, and in our series looking at times when people were met by God, we looked at Exodus 2-3 and the time when God met Moses. Malcolm preached for us and encouraged us to learn from Moses’ example of humility, prayerfulness and trust in God. And we were challenged: God looks for people but are we looking for Him, and are we ready to be used by Him in His service?
Those who have specifically asked us to remember them in prayer:
Sarah Bibby, Miles Buckley, Clare Casson, Alan Cross, Sid Davies, June Davenport, David Hoyle, Jennifer Morrison, Helen Marie Munro, Alan Page, Donald Pryce, Barbara Purcell, Pat & Peter Spiller, Judy Stewart, Andy Studley, Tony Whalley, Mary Worthington and Barbara Wilson.
Those who mourn, especially the family and friends of:
Les Worthington and Claud Metson.
