Our Sunday services were at
2.30 from October to March and 6.00 from April to September.
Our November services are special this year.
Please look at our diary to see when our next service will be.
Christians believe that God created everything that is – frequently through human skills. Jesus is the Son of God. He was born to Mary as a human person, died an horrific death on a cross because he loves us, and came back to life. He is now with God, his Father.
The Spirit of God lives in us when we ask him to.
Father, Son and Spirit are all God.
This raises many mysteries. We try to understand by reading the Bible which is a record of God the Father working in His world, of the teaching of Jesus and the moving of the Spirit in God’s people.
This display is for one of our toy services for the Salvation Army. We have generous friends and neighbours who help to make give presents to children who would be without. On these occasions our church is full of people and toys, happiness and meeting friends again. It is only one of the charities that we support and one of the special services we have each year.
Our door looks out to our mission field. A main road with lots of traffic every day, a distant farmhouse (with three others to left and right) and the homes lining the roads between them.
We rejoice that Jesus cares about all the people. Praying for them is part of our ministry.

Most of the services happened as planned.
It was hard to praise God in October after being disappointed that the church would close.
Why had we believed that He would step in and rescue the Church, even at the last minute?
When Covid began we had nine members. Twenty months later it had changed. Two stayed at home after the lockdown, two chose to attend Middlewich instead, one was disillusioned with the teaching in the church, one died. That left three and we could not run a church with three who had not the energy required.
And yet God is Sovereign and He knows what is best.
The building is in good condition. Please pray that another group of Christians will see the potential and use it to God’s glory.
Not all our services are at 2.30.
Sunday 7th at 2.30, Bill Farquhar will lead worship and communion.
On 14th at 2.30, Murray George will go through an act of worship.
21st At 3 p.m. A time of worship together, prayer for the church and encouragement, led by a very special preacher. Then we shall gather round the table with tea and biscuits to chat. Just like we used to but this time we chat about the church. There’s a possibility of enjoying some of the hymns at 2.30 before the service.
28th 2.30 p.m. The saddest day ever for this church.
We planned to welcome Steven Watson, the Major from the Salvation Army to lead our worship and receive our contribution to their Christmas Toy Appeal.
However it will be our final service before closing. Our Moderator, Rev. Geoff Felton, will be leading the service.
We would have liked to fill the church with worshippers but Covid makes that dangerous. We are only admitting people who have been invited.
However all are welcome on Zoom. Ask the secretary, by email, for more information about how.
Please pray with us
For the church to know Jesus more.
For the people who live near the church.
For the people who are struggling with life.
For Mission Aviation Fellowship.
For Murray George, our minister.
For us as we worship elsewhere.
Would you like us to pray for a concern of yours? We still can.
Prayer does not fit us for the greater work, it is the greater work. (Oswald Chambers)
R U looking for a happy church, small, friendly, relaxed, caring, gentle, with prayer and offering the hope and peace of Jesus? You’ve found it! Want a warm intimate setting for a baptism, wedding or funeral? Unfortunately you are too late. We cannot accommodate you. You may want to wait to see who buys the building.
Our Lord, Our God
Our God’s love for us is greater than we can imagine, beyond the limits of human love. There is no limit. He loves people who think they are good as well as people who think they don’t deserve his love.
He loves us when we are going through difficult patches in our lives. Our Lord’s love shelters those people who trust Him when the storms come and all seems lost.
Our God is fair even when we think it is not, because he sees the bigger picture of our lives and other people’s lives. Our Lord will not be persuaded to do wrong as He stands firm in truth.
