Adam Wright planted his Pansy a few weeks ago at Sunday School. It has now flowered to remind him of Christ’s resurrection…and it looks very pretty!
Happy Ester to you all
The search for an organist goes on!
Our thoughts are with Marilyn as she waits to go into a new care home. This is an uncertain time for her but hopefully she will be settled in soon. Phillip is doing fantastic work for us on the organ but any weekends that can be covered by an organist in the local area would be hugely appreciated.
If anyone would be interested in playing our beautiful organ on some (or all!) Sundays then please contact us.
Our new e mail address for all comments and enquiries is firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you to John Griffiths for coming to talk to us about the work of Commitment for life in Central America. It was a fascinating talk and demonstrates the need for ongoing community support in these countries. The church will keep this work in our prayers and I will continue to keep the church updated through the newsletter and the website as to the charities work in the region,

Thank you for all the positive feedback we have had regarding the new screens in church. It has been a new way of welcoming people to the church and hopefully will be increasingly used during services. The screens can display welcoming images, hymns and video footage for use with services or for events organised by other parties using the church.

A very happy Christmas to all at the church and our wider family in Kirkham and beyond. It has been an exciting but uncertain time at the church as we have been without a minister and entered into a new pastorate. As we now enter the patient wait (or not so patient in the case of my children and Bella!) that lent represents and Christmas approaches I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped at the church this year. We are a small church that manages through God’s grace to be active in the community but it is the hard work of the church’s members and friends that make its activities possible. Thank you so much for all your hard work and supporting me in my role as chairman of the elders this year.
A very merry Christmas and a happy new year,
Your servant in grace,

The Junior church provided A moving and thought provoking service. The names of the war dead were read out and everyone had time to contemplate the great sacrifices made both in the great war and since, both among soldiers and the civilian population. Thanks to everyone who attended, the children all enjoyed the service, especially the drinks and biscuits afterwards! It is fantastic that so many took the time to come out and remember the fallen at this special time of year.Church, Kirkham, Remembrance, United Reformed Church
