I hope you have all had a good week and have found some time to enjoy the sunshine. It’s hard to believe that this coming Monday is the longest day. The year is starting to change!
Thank you to all of you who came to the meeting on Thursday night with Archdeacon Mike. Thanks also to Steve, Mark and Gill for the constructive way in which they have worked with Norton parish and Mike to bring an excellent set of proposals for the future of both parishes.
Several interesting questions were asked and answered very clearly by Mike. No one spoke against the proposals. The next step is for the PCC to say that they are happy with the proposals as showing the way God is calling us to move out in faith.
This Sunday is World Refugee Day. You may have seen the news reports this week about the number of unaccompanied children and refugees crossing the Channel. Gill tells me that at present there are over 250 displaced people, refugees and migrants living temporarily in Daresbury Park Hotel, including several families and 25 children from the ages of 1 to 17. Please keep them in your prayers, not forgetting those whose responsibility it is to offer support and to help them to move onto to more suitable and permanent accommodation. If you would like to help with clothes etc, please have a word with Gill.
Tomorrow’s service sheet is attached.
With God’s blessing,
