We give thanks for the lives of two members of our congregation who died recently: Jean Reid on 23rd January and Christine Allsopp on 28th February. We send our love and prayers to Jeanís daughters, Helen and Colette and to Christineís sons, Michael and Jeremy.

A number of other members of our congregation have lost loved ones in recent months, including Jonathon Pond, whose sister, Mary Allen (wife of the late Jimmy Allen, formerly of Deepdale Methodist Church) died on 25th January. We send them all our sympathy and prayers in their loss.


In the last few months a number of our church family have been unwell and several have been in hospital. We assure them all of our love and prayers.


Congratulations to:

Fiona Jackson, our Beaver Scout Leader, on being awarded the Silver Acorn in the St Georgeís Day celebration Roll of Honour for more than 20 years of distinguished service.

Ben Gaskell on gaining his Chief Scoutís Gold Award.

Madeline Bennett on passing her Guide Leadership Certificate.

Several members of the congregation who have also had special birthdays or reached significant milestones. We spare their blushes!


If you have a person for whom you would like us to pray, their name can be circulated around our prayer chain - information to Judith Harvey 787500 or e-mail: There is also a prayer book on the table in the prayer corner of the church for anyone to write in their prayer requests. These prayers are then used in our Communion Service on a Wednesday morning.
