Heritage Day - Help needed

Heritage Day is nearly here - Saturday 9th September - and we urgently need help with the following:

  • Clearing rubbish from the Church and Crypt areas
  • Help tidying the ground and pathways
  • Tidying the memorial / ashes area and War Graves
  • Sorting and clearing the choir vestry

We have several pillar light bulbs that need replacing but we have no one able with ladders to help. If you can help please let me as soon as possible.

Disabled Friendly Church Award - Update

Thank you to all who attended the service at All Saint's on Wednesday.

We had a lovely evening - the Liverpool Signing Choir performed the song 'True Colours' and the Rev Alex Galbraith spoke on Jesus heals a blind man at Bethsaida from his perspective as a blind person. It was humorous and enlightening.

We heard a new form of The Creed which we will share with you all over the next few months.

Although we have our award there are still things to do to make our church more welcoming for those with disabilities, if we can do anything to help you please come and speak to me.

Past Times...

Some years back, St John’s had its own magazine - “St John’s News”. Here are some of its “gems”…. (with thanks to Sue Farley !!)

CHRISTMAS FAYRE - another successful year!!

A big 'Thank You' to everyone who helped with and supported our Christmas Fair on Saturday making it such a success.

Whether setting up tables and chairs, fetching and carrying, feeding or tidying up at the end, it was good to see everyone enjoying themselves and making friends.

It was lovely to see the children talking to Santa in his grotto and experiencing The Christmas Story in church.

And.... latest figures show a total of £604 was raised - well done to all !!

If you weren't there here's a taste of what you missed - so next year be sure to join us!
