We set off from St. John’s Church Hall at 9am and headed off through Clarence Park towards Freetown. Our walk took us past St. Thomas’ Church and Pimhole before we picked up the Roch Valley Greenway and along the banks of the River Roch for a short while before reaching Blackford Bridge.
Jesus took to the sea and to the hills when he needed time to rest, to reflect on his life’s journey. We all need to do that and if we are able to spend a little time in different surroundings it really does help our perspective on where we are at. It doesn’t have to be a fortnight sailing around the Mediterranean – a day or two on retreat at Formby can be just as rewarding.
On Saturday June 30th we’ll be having a Coffee Morning and Book Fair. This will be in the hall from 10am – 12.30pm. Just turn up, no tickets needed. Then on Saturday July 7th the Scouts are having a cream tea from 2pm. Tickets £3.50 each.
Join us at Freedom Church for a fun, summers evening together on 13th July, where we can soak-up the gorgeous atmosphere of Brand New Vibes, experiencing all things summer; indoor gardens, fresh fruit treats, home-made scones, chilled drinks, acoustic tones and upbeat faith-filled encouragement.
Images from the very successful flower festival at St Stephen’s Church, Elton. The event was to celebrate 125 years since the installation of their church organ. St Stephen’s are currently looking after the Rev Paul Sanderson for us…
From John Pearcey at the Co-op: I am going to set up a monthly coffee morning for local community groups. Come along, have a brew and a chat while learning what is going on in the area. It’s also a chance to pick the brains of others who more experienced in community work.
