Temporary Church closure

Dear Friends,

Great News! The clergy and the PCC at Christ Church have made the decision that we will start to welcome our church family back into the building from Sunday 14th March at both our 8.30am and 10.00am services. Social distancing will remain in place and the live streaming will continue. It will be great to see those who feel able to attend in person

The church building will still be open throughout the week for private prayer between  10am and 7pm.

If there’s anything that we can do to help in any way during this difficult period, please don’t hesitate to call any of the numbers listed below.

With love and prayers,

Prayer for the Day

Creator God, who made all things and appointed us as guardians to this inheritance, guide us in the right ways to protect this earth, and help us to make our voices heard in defending our planet’s future. Give us wisdom in the use of natural resources and intelligence to develop new sustainable energies, that the generations who follow us may flourish and prosper and advance your kingdom. Amen

This Lent, the Diocese of Chester, led by the diocesan Environment Forum, is inviting you to join in the with a Lenten journey. Leading the way are 40 indiviuals from around our diocese who will each reflect on God’s word and God’s world. They will delve into scripture and share inspiring personal stories about the small ways in which they are moved to cherish the gift of life.

Thoughts for the Week

“Discipleship involves giving up our own lives through sacrificial love, leading
to the surprising and ultimately saving discovery that in giving we have
received.” Paul Shupe
“If you want to make a difference and leave your world a better place, let
others know how important they are as you put their needs above yours.”
Jaren L. Davis
“The world is changed by your example and not your opinion.” Paulo Coelho

Outside Lights

We are going to keep the outside lights on until the clocks go forward. We know that these lights bring some comfort and hope in the dark evenings.
