Welcome to our new website then at the end if you feel we could do something better on our website please let us know. We welcome feedback.

Church Road is a growing church with an exciting vision for the future. It involves rationalising our site, developing new projects of outreach and service to the community so that we help people experience the transforming love of God, change lives and communities as we follow Christ. No matter how much we try to use social media, we would say you can't beat a face to face conversation so don't hesitate to ask for an appointment with Stephen, our Minister, if you would rather have a chat.

SUNDAY 17th SEPTEMBER
HARVEST FESTIVAL
As in previous years, as part of our thanksgiving for all the good things we enjoy we are encouraging people to support local and international projects to help those in need. Abroad we have chosen the work of All We Can in Zimbabwe where people are seeking to overcome the effects of lack of rain. Envelopes for cash donations will be available to support the Chirp for Joy initiative and we will be providing more information in the service.

We know there are needs here in St Annes and we will be inviting people to support the Fylde Foodbank. Donations of the following items will be gratefully received: long-life milk; long-life fruit juice; tins of fruit, vegetables, potatoes and meat; coffee. Pasta, cereals, tea or sugar are NOT required because they have sufficient in stock. The choice of charity is yours.

HARVEST LUNCH The service will be followed by a harvest lunch in the centre. No need to book.

We look forward to seeing you there.
