DATES FOR YOUR DIARY - DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

BENEVOLENT FUND

Collections for the Benevolent Fund are to be reintroduced at the end of Holy Communion services. This is perhaps a good way to put your loose change to use, once your collection box has been handed in.

PRAYER


More things are wrought by prayer Than this world dreams of.
        Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809 – 1892)
Are you willing to pray for people who need prayer? Please email me at janda_mayes@hotmail.com or telephone 727132. I will try to compile a list of people I can contact when prayer is requested. Many thanks.               Anne Maye

SERVICE FOR THE WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY

THANK YOU


Dear members, I was delighted just before Christmas to receive a presentation in the form of a voucher from the Church members to acknowledge my work as Church Treasurer over the past twelve years.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Church Road family for your kindness and generosity in giving me this gift and to express my thanks and appreciation for your support.
Wishing you all a blessed Christmas and a happy and healthy 2023.
Thanking you again,
Best wishes, Andrew Whitley

SAD NEWS

We are sorry to announce that Matthew Cooke (who used to join us for worship in a wheelchair) passed away in December. The family have approached Revd Stephen Heath to conduct his funeral, but no details are known yet.
His father told Louise that the doctors warned them that Matthew would not survive infancy so to reach the age of 44 was incredible. He loved coming to worship and particularly enjoyed the music, especially guitars. We haven't seen so much of him since Covid when he was moved nearer to Blackpool and his carers couldn't always manage to bring him to church. He died peacefully.  

URGENT AND IMPORTANT!

Sound Person Needed
We now only have 2 people on the Sound Rota. It's easy! We can't manage without one! Please speak to John Mayes.
