Knitted Bible

Knitted Bible

Knitted Bible, a child-friendly exhibition which tours the nation, is in Holmes Chapel for a week at the end of January and will be open for viewing by local primary school children and parishioners. It was developed by a team of knitters from an enterprising and ordinary church in Hartlepool and provides 35 scenes from the Bible with colourful backdrops and knitted figures.  These simple images will help both children and adults to imagine some of the key events of the Old Testament and New Testament.

Genesis Jan 2022

Welcome back to Genesis after the Christmas break and a happy New Year to you all. We hope you were able to enjoy the festive season and that your family and friends stayed well. We feel very fortunate to have been able to share the Genesis nativity, ‘The Star that couldn’t twinkle’ with the congregation in Church in late December. With many schools having to cancel nativities or restrict viewings we know you appreciated the opportunity to
see your child/children at St Luke’s.

Community Choir is meeting again!

The Community Choir is now singing together again in person on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm in the Church Hall (except over the Christmas period on 22nd, 29th Dec and 5th Jan). It’s an ideal time for newcomers to join and have a good sing together…..
