Lent Course: Radical Welcome
Vicarage
We are a welcoming church, but we are always looking to be even better at it!

Christ welcoming and included everyone. In our society we are taught from a very early age to make judgements on what is, or is not, appropriate behaviors and manners. Not all of this is bad, but being aware of our assumptions and judgements and when to utilize them and when to silence them requires us to be ever more self aware.

This course goes beyond the obvious niceties, and helps us to consider how we can be radically welcoming, not just in our church, but in in our personal lives too.

Junior Church

Occuring
Every Sunday at for 1 hour
Venue
St George
Address
Church Road Altrincham, WA14 4TT, United Kingdom

hildren are really important to us, and it’s important to us that young children feel at home in their church which we know will come with some noise and energy depending on their mood!

Each Sunday we have some fantastic provision for our children. Normally, they will join us at the start of the service and then go out with Dee and her team to enjoy their own session and let off some much needed steam! Sometimes we have a fun filled family service (for things such as Harvest) at which point they stay in, playing a full part in all that’s going on.

For those younger, and indeed, for any children who would prefer to stay in the service there is a children’s area where they can explore all that’s on offer during the service. Also, as they get older, many of our children play an active role in our services by doing things such as reading and being the acolytes (carrying the candles) which we love!​

After the service, we all gather for coffee and biscuits, and our children get well and truly spoilt!

Church is a wonderful way for children to get comfortable speaking to a wide range of people, and gives their adults some space to reflect on the week and get a hot drink too at the end of it!

Alongside Altrincham CE Primary School we're delighted to be starting a children’s choir!

Our choir will be focused on teaching our pupils how to sing properly, how to read music and for those that want it, they will be fully prepared to sit the relevant ABRSM exams—setting them up for any musical adventure that they want to peruse in secondary school. In other words, we’ll be able to offer free musical tuition that will last your child a lifetime.

Many of us are not musical, but have a child who has been given opportunities to be well taught and nurtured in all things music, and we can testify to the life changing difference that it makes and the opportunities that come from it.

Venue

So do note the change of time (we get a lie in and start at 11:15) – we’d love you to come along!

Either meet at the cross outside The Old Market Tavern and The Orange Tree Pub (just off the A56 Old Market Place Road) or if you’d prefer not to parade, meet in church at 11.30….

Maundy Thursday

Occuring
for 1 hour
Venue
St George
Address
Church Road Altrincham, WA14 4TT, United Kingdom

Maundy Thursday is the day when we remember Christ’s last supper and the moment when he washed his disciples’ feet.

This is a traditional service, interweaved with the thoughts, patterns and practices of many centuries of Christians who have gone before us.

But it’s also strikingly challenging and modern; there is something very powerful about remembering the moment when Christ offered himself to all, even those about to betray him, and the Stripping of the Altars that follows speaks strongly into our understanding of consumerism and simplicity.

So even if church isn’t your thing, why not give it a go? We’d love you to be part of it.

Occuring
for 1 hour
Venue
St George
Address
Church Road Altrincham, WA14 4TT, United Kingdom

On Holy Saturday, we move towards the resurrection – the defeat of death and the day when history was changed for ever.

So do join us for this traditional service, with the opportunity for us to renew our baptism vows. It’s been built on many centuries of tradition and is full of wonderful symbolism and gravitas.

Then at the end, we simply gather around the Easter fire, enjoying the company of one another as the sun finally sets (and a few marshmallows too!).

Whether this is completely new, or a yearly practice, do come and be part of it – we’d love to have you there.
