April 2019 magazine

At last! It’s April and finally Easter is here. The eggs started to appear in the shops almost as soon as January began. It has been a long haul!

I noticed in a certain large supermarket a notice reminding customers that Easter was on 21st April – and that was at the beginning of March.

They must have been worried that after nearly two months of eggs on the shelves customers would be getting concerned about sell-by dates and/or whether, after all this time, they might have missed Easter altogether!

October Magazine

This is our October magazine which includes a farewell from Gill Barnett, who is moving to a new role in Rochdale…

“We are all called to be active members of the body of Christ – our anchor – but in that calling we will be gifted and prepared to do things that sometimes make us uncomfortable and which we find challenging. 

Both inside and outside the church we will cross paths with people who may not be like us.  They may dress differently, talk differently, vote differently, hold different things in high (or low) esteem.  There are people who are not like us.  There are people who we don’t like.  There are people who don’t like us.  But there is no-one to whom we shouldn’t show the love of Christ…”
