Come to Church

Good News!  Church services are back each Sunday!

Doors open by 10:30am and the service begins at 10:45am.  Hymn singing is back!  We still wear face coverings (unless you're exempt) but at least we can now sing through them.  After-church refreshments still won't be available, but at least we can meet and worship God together!  Chairs are back in rows, but the rows are further apart than before.  If you prefer to sit alone, just leave something on the chairs next to you.

We look forward to seeing old friends and new...

If you feel unable to return to church just yet, there is an alternative service from Peter Lyth for you to use at home.

We hold a retiring collection for local charities after our Sunday services.  Now that we are worshipping on Sunday mornings, you can donate as usual.  If you prefer to not handle cash, but would like to support our charities, please either send your donations direct to the charity concerned, mentioning Birkdale United Reformed Church, or give it to Chris Goley, our treasurer.  You can contact her here.

This month's charity is SSAFA  – the Armed Forces charity. The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association, is a UK charity that provides lifelong support to serving men and women and veterans from the British Armed Forces and their families or dependents.

My daughter-in-law works for SSAFA and she sent me this information: “SSAFA is the oldest tri-service charity and provides support for both current and ex-service men and women from the Armed Forces, and for their dependant family members. It is completely independent of the military chain of command and provides a non-judgemental service.

Our experienced staff and volunteers are available to talk about anything that concerns clients such as debt and money worries, housing issues, feelings of isolation, relationship problems, bereavement, and mental health issues that they might be facing.

We provide information, support and signpost people to sources of expert advice and our helpline can provide both practical and emotional listening support.”

The charity is largely dependent on donations and uses all monies wisely. Approaching the season of Remembrance please support SSAFA if you can.

Thank you.
