Sunday service on 17th March was the last one to be led at Birkdale by Rev Peter Lyth.

He retired after his service at Churchtown URC on 24th March, Palm Sunday.

We wish him a long and happy retirement!

Our final event featured the Gaz Hughes Trio.  An excellent instrumental band.  They were very well received.

The raffles held during this season's events raised a total of £1,614.25 for Queenscourt Hospice!

Here is the Remembrance Day Tribute from the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

The painted bottles are made to resemble headstones in War Grave cemeteries and each one has a painted tribute on it.  They are displayed on the grass in front of the church.

Hilary, our minister, held a short dedication service on Friday. They were illuminated by battery tea lights.  The effect was very atmospheric.

Cubs' Remembrance tribute
