Retiring Collection

The Retiring Collection during February and March is for the Woodward Trust.  This charity supports retired ministers in the North West.  It would be grateful for donations which help them to continue their valued work.

The Trust was set up by Mr and Mrs Woodward in 1870 to assist ministers with a little financial help under certain conditions and they have letters going back many years from ministers who really appreciated the money.

The Trust now gives grants to retired ministers who served within the designated area for the ten years in full-time stipendiary ministry immediately prior to retirement.

Do support this important work.

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.
