Genesis update – Jan 2023

Genesis update – Jan 2023

Thank you for all your support and encouragement with the Christmas services which were so well received.

Genesis meets on Sundays normally at 10am in the Church Hall continuing until 10.45am. We then join the congregation in the church service to share our learning with them, for prayers, a short sermon and for singing. The service finishes around 11.15am so we can all leave together to enjoy fellowship over a drink and biscuit back in the Church Hall.

The Spring term programme up to Easter is shown below.

MU Epiphany service 2023

It was lovely to see about 28 members, including several from Sandbach Heath and Brereton, turn up on a very cold, snowy day for our Epiphany service and party on Wed 18th Jan.

Canon Rob conducted a Communion Service for us, and reminded us of the importance of Epiphany. After the service he enrolled his mother, Margaret McLaren, as a member of
the Mothers’ Union.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the two Christingle and Crib services on Christmas Eve such a success as St Luke’s shone in candlelight.

Each service was supported by over 200 people and over £450 was raised for the work of the Children’s Society.

Church Flowers 2023

Many thanks to everyone who helped decorate St Luke’s church with flowers again this Christmas. The new 2023 rota for the altar flowers is now in the church porch for people to sign up when they are able to help. If you are interested in helping and would like...

MU Meeting 16 Nov 22

The recent considerable rise in MU fees prompted quite a discussion. Ann Peach, from Brereton and a Trustee of MU, was able to explain where all the fees went to and how MU is in deficit by a considerable amount.

The main theme for the meeting was ‘Who has inspired you?’ and three of our members shared their personal accounts.
