Our new organ was commissioned at a recital on 2nd October by the acclaimed organist Ian Tracey, Organist Titulaire at Liverpool Cathedral.
Thanks to the generosity of many we have now been able to welcome our new organ into the church—and it is clear that it will be of great benefit to our worship.
Ian treated the audience to a superb programme of music chosen by him to demonstrate our organ’s capabilities. His wonderful musicianship and his interesting and engaging comments about the music and the organ itself made it an evening to remember.
Life is not straightforward at the moment. We have been glad to resume all of our services in church, but the need to be careful has been heightened by the relatively high number of local Covid cases in recent weeks. So we take care. And we are busy planning……
One of our plans is to host the Knitted Bible Experience next February 2022 and invite local primary school children to enjoy the experience.
Another is to resume our tradition of lively busy Christmas services. We are also working with the Royal British Legion, the Parish Council and the Uniformed Organisations to enable a Remembrance Sunday with large participation.
As a church, we are keen to regain momentum and help our community forward…….

O Lord, open our lips;
And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.
Let your ways be known upon earth,
Your saving power among the nations.
We were excited to be back in the Church Hall in September with our new time and changes to the Church service.
We now meet at the Church Hall from 9.45am so we can promptly start at 9.50am and finish at 10.25am. We will then go over to the church to join in the Morning Worship service.
Our first “in person” meeting: Wednesday 17th September
We weren’t sure how many people would actually turn up for our first “in person” meeting but felt that as it was an afternoon tea we might get a few.
Well, thirty members and friends came to join in!!
