Abooo Theatre will be using our hall this Friday 17th May to rehearse for a performance at The Lowry of MotherAct.

MotherAct is a piece about mothering in all it’s messy glory. It’s being created by a team of mums including a musician, writer, director and several actors.

If you’re a mum with a young child and want to participate in their community chorus next week then please read on…

boundary walk

Boundary walk

As is now traditional for May, the Walking Group met on the first Saturday to ‘beat the bounds’, i.e. walking the full boundary of both Parishes and reflecting at various points on the route.

We were also pleased to be joined by Heidi, Lisa and Natasha, who were in training for a 26-miler later in the year.

This year we took the opportunity to pause for silent prayer and reflection at particular areas and sites of significance.

thy kingdom come

Light up the world – S@S

Our next Sunday@Seven service is May 26th. We’ll be meeting again at the hall in Christ Church. The theme is ‘Light up the world’ which is the strap-line from Thy Kingdom Come.

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. It’s an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

We will have both churches open for morning and evening prayer during Thy Kingdom Come, which runs 11 days from May 30th.
