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.

We continue to work towards a 1st March 2018 start for the project.  However this is a provisional date as conversations are continuing with our Developer regarding the final specification and costs and the Housing Association finalise their plans for the purchase and development of the site.  We ask for your continued prayers at this time.

Fylde Borough Council, in conjunction with Cosy Homes in Lancashire (CHiL), are supporting National Energy Action’s (NEA’s) Warm Homes Campaign to raise the awareness of fuel poverty and the impact of cold homes in relation to health and wellbeing. Representatives from Fylde Borough Council, CHiL, NEA, Care and Repair and CLEVER Money will be attending. A range of offers will be available including property insulation, free boiler servicing and repairs/replacements (qualifying criteria apply), as well as advice and information from a range of agencies which work in the area. A raffle will be drawn on the day with a range of prizes on offer. In addition, in conjunction with Wesley’s Café, there will be an opportunity to taste and learn about how nutritious meals can be prepared on a budget so that people do not need to decide between Heating and Eating but enjoy both!

COLLECTION OF FUNDRAISING BOXES
There is a further collection of our fundraising boxes today. Please place them in the box at the rear of the church and write your name clearly on the BACK of the box.  After counting, the boxes will be acknowledged and returned to you. The next formal collection will be in about three months; however, if it’s more convenient, you can also return them to the Steward on duty on any Sunday and the box will be returned to you the following week.

If you do not have a box and would like one to support us in this way with occasional donations, please contact the church office.

CLEARING OUT

In preparation for the start of building works, we are inviting volunteers to meet after the service this morning to prepare for clearing out the garage. Willing help appreciated - please speak to Jonathan Livesey or Keith Hall.

TRAIDCRAFT
The Traidcraft stall will be at the rear of the church after morning worship next Sunday. Please come along and support fair trade products.

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who contributed towards the open afternoon last Sunday and to all those attending. I know a lot of effort went into organising and setting up the displays, the refreshments and the accompanying leaflet. It was an afternoon of discovery and nostalgia for all who attended and just shows what we have achieved over the years as a church and what we can achieve in the future. Linda Butcher

SUNDAY SERVICES

CENTRE HEATING
As the cold winter weather is taking a hold, meaning heating in the Centre premises is now in full use, there have been instances of some organisations turning OFF the radiators in whichever room they are using because they felt it was too hot. This has resulted in reports by other organisations using that same room that the heating has failed, a telephone call being made, and needless turning out to investigate. Will organisations who turn off radiators please ensure they are re-activated before leaving the premises.
Thank you.
