We will celebrate Harvest at both churches, pre booking required, the 10:40am service at St Mary’s will be live-streamed so everyone can join in! Click here for details of how to book.

We will be encouraging people to make a financial, rather than a food donation (as we can’t redistribute them this year), to the charities we usually support as we give thanks to God for his goodness to us each and every day and even in the midst of a global pandemic – click on the links to go to their donations pages:

Nantwich Food Bank
Crewe Food Bank
St Luke’s Hospice
Cheshire Agricultural Chaplaincy – no online giving but there’s an address to send a cheque to
Christain Aid

 

Join together on Zoom for a chat after the 10:40am service

A Selection of Resources for all ages

Junior Church Resources

As we can’t meet together for Junior Church, each week we will publish something on here for our young people to do at home. 

We hope you find these resources useful.

  • You can click here, or the image above, to access the resource from St Mary’s
  • Also, each week The Ollertons have produced some great resources over the past few months
  • The Church of England’s ‘Faith at Home’ website has resources for young and old
  • The Bible Society’s Book Club is an amazing resource for older youth and their parents – it’s well worth a book to discover more about the Bible

A bitesize Bible experience from the Ollerton Family

Through 15 minute sessions explore famous characters and events that form The Greatest Story Ever and discover how we can be part of it today. Simple to run. Fun. Free. No prior knowledge required. This family devotional course mixes online content (videos, readings, discussion) and printed cards to form a colourful learning experience in your own home.

Faith at Home from the Church of England

This is a great resource for families to keep their children’s faith alive at this time. 
Faith at Home is a national campaign that builds on the work of Growing Faith and Everyday Faith to support the faith development and pastoral care of children and young people.

The Bible Society
Bible Book Club

This is a fantastic free resource which we’ve used for some of the Midweek Get Togethers and is great for personal use to discover more about the books of the bible. Please take a look at the video and click here to find out more.

Special Events this Autumn

Things may be different this Autumn, but we have some exciting things to celebrate within God’s Love!

November: 
We will wait and see if the guidance changes, but it’s looking unlikely that we will be able to hold our Annual Commemoration Service which is normally on the 1st Sunday of November. If we can’t we will do something online. 
We also await guidance on celebrating Remembrance Sunday (08/11). We will have a service in church, but it will be limited numbers and we will live-stream it. We will also officially open the new work around the War Memorial on that day. We have a shortfall of a couple of thousand pounds on this project, if you can help to cut this please click here or speak to Revd Mike, it would be good to get it in balance before the opening.
