“By entering this church it may be possible that you hear “the call of God”.
However, it is less probable that He will call you on your mobile.
Thank you for turning off your phones.
If you want to talk to God, enter, choose a quiet place and talk to him.
If you want to see him, send him a text while driving.”Read more

As the name of the group suggests the evening is open to all. We meet on the second Wednesday of each month. It starts at 7.30pm and normally lasts just over an hour with a brew and a chat at the end.
One of the sessions is a Craft Night, hence the photo above. But most evenings are listening to speakers, either visitors or people from our own congregation.
If you’ve not been before, go on, give it a try!Read more
Creation Season runs from September 1st, the start of the Orthodox year, through to St Francis day on October 4th.
Churches and congregations are called to pay special attention to the responsibility of humanity for the Earth and for all that lives upon it.
Its start and end dates reflect that it is a shared idea between Western and Eastern Christianity.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
