Dear All,

I hope that you are keeping well and warm on these very cold days.

It was a great joy to see Malcolm licensed for his ministry with us in the team on Thursday night. We had limited space at the service so attendance was by invitation only. However, the service was videoed mainly for the benefit of those in the Farnworth, Kearsley & Stoneclough Team who wanted to come but couldn't because of the restrictions on space. The video has been put on their Team YouTube channel and you can access it by following the link below.

There is a service of Holy Communion tomorrow at 9.30 am. Please note, for the time being, Barbara, Evelyn and I have taken the decision to suspend the fortnightly 10.30 am services. We regret having to do this but feel it is the right thing to do with the ever increasing and rising infections of Covid in our area. Many from our church family are now rightly shielding so we have less people available to help.with services and our first priority has to always be keeping people safe.

As always, please get in touch if you need help with anything. Please keep praying, especially for those really struggling in lockdown 3.

With prayers and best wishes

Carol
