Church News

Some sad news:

Stainer's "The Crucifiction", due to be performed on Sunday March 18th,  has had to be cancelled. 

The Glad News:

Sunday, 11th February,  at 3pm we welcomed Pete Rimmer and friends from Bothy Folk Club. A good time was had by all, with plenty of audience participation and we raised over £70 towards the work of the church in the community.

Thanks, Pete, it was a great afternoon!

Cafe Jam came to Birkdale

On 4th February we had Cafe Jam with us for an evening of singing and cake, mountains of it! They said it was one of the best-attended sessions so far. A great time was had by all!

Lunch club celebrated 50 years on September 19th. 

We had a specially decorated cake by Sarah, a talk by Janice, and a toast to the future. Photos here record the event, and also photos from Derek of early days of lunch club. See who you can recognise...

Joyce Poulton50th Anniversary cake

Remember Joyce Poulton? She reigned over the church kitchen for many years, but her colleagues would move mountains for her!
