During Lockdown we are holding Sunday services by Zoom, conducted by our Minister, Rev Peter Lyth. Contact the Website manager if you would like to join us.
Services start at 10:45am unless otherwise stated.
Where possible, we are publishing the orders of service as downloadable pdf files...
We usually hold a retiring collection for local charities after our Sunday services. However, as we're not meeting at church for worship, we are unable to hold our retiring collection. If you 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 Samaritans, a registered charity aimed at providing emotional support to anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide, often through their telephone helpline. Its name derives from the Biblical Parable of the Good Samaritan, although the organisation itself is non-religious.
The Southport branch offers support to people in need and supports local community activities. Obviously due to the current situation Face to Face services are temporarily suspended. They hope to resume these as soon as possible.
However, they continue to offer the opportunity to talk to volunteers by phone. Their teams are working hard to ensure that they can still be there 24/7, 365 days a year for those who are in crisis. Samaritans works to make sure there’s always someone there for anyone who needs someone.
Since the first lockdown, their volunteers have dedicated nearly one million hours in listening to people who needed to talk to someone. Now, more than ever, they need our support in the form of donations to continue this work.
Please give generously if you can. Thank you.
