Retiring Collection

Each Sunday we hold a charity retiring collection.  During April and May we are collecting for 

Derian HouseDerian House logo

Situated in the heart of Lancashire, Derian House provides palliative, specialist respite and end of life care for children and young adults throughout the North West region.

They help families who have a child with a life shortening condition choose from a range of care and support services to meet their Family Support, and end of life care, either at home, or in Derian House. The emphasis is on giving support to children and their families, and providing them with choices which deliver an approach to care as individuals.

The cost of maintaining the hospice and the services and facilities it offers, has risen sequentially with the passing years.  As a charity receiving minimal statutory funding, they continue to rely almost exclusively on their own efforts and the support of friends in the wider community to raise the £3.85 million they will need this year to continue to meet the needs of children and families throughout Lancashire and Cumbria.

It is hard to believe that an amount as large as this could be raised, whatever we give will be appreciated.

There is a 

Julian Prayer Meeting

at Churchtown URC, 10am on the first Friday of every month.

This is an opportunity for you  to spend 30 minutes in contemplative prayer and meditation.  Feel free to join Janice Atfield for some spiritual renewal.
