It’s all change at Minshull Church this September as we say thank you to Rev. David Spence for many years of faithful ministry and caring. He served us as minister for ten years bringing stability and encouragement as well as a sense of being loved. Since his compulsory retirement he has served as our ‘Interim Moderator’ which means that he wasn’t supposed to do so much but we didn’t notice any difference.
His last service will be a cafe-style worship with friends and the church he loves.
Thank you to David Spence

Welcome to Murray George
2.30 on 17th September
We welcome Rev Murray George as our new minster. Murray has been minister at Congleton and Alsager United Reformed Churches for a few years now so he knows us quite well already. He used to be involved in farm work and rural churches before he came to Cheshire so there is a wealth of experience and understanding to share with us. We look forward to having a good relationship with him and moving forward as a church in our rural area.
His first service will be a Communion Service for which we also welcome back Rev. Jackie Embrey, our Moderator.
This year we thank God for the Harvest with a celebration led by the Agricultural Chaplaincy of Cheshire.
Although we have been involved in their work for a few years, we have met few of the busy team.
They cover the whole of Cheshire & Wirral offering 24:7 support to the farming community with a listening ear for as long as required, pastoral support and ability to bring in supporting agencies when required.
The majority of people seen by the team are suffering from depression, mental health issues or financial difficulties. As well as visiting individual farms, team members attend local livestock markets, local agricultural shows and preside at church services.
Give thanks for the
with grateful hearts

Much of the non-perishable food we display will be stored by the Salvation Army. It will replenish their supplies, ready for distribution to people in the Crewe area who are genuinely short of food.
Over recent months they have seen an increase in the number of people needing help. A significant number of referrals they receive come from the job centre. This is frequently people making new claims or transferring between different benefits. They also receive a number of requests from Social Workers for urgent food parcels. They work with other agencies where they are sharing clients. Although their main distribution is on Monday and Friday mornings they can make parcels available throughout the week when requested by the referring agencies.
Please pray with us for
the church to know Jesus more
the people who live near the church
the people who are struggling with life
