Catherine takes up her new post

On Tuesday 26 January Revd Catherine Cleghorn was licensed and installed by the Bishop of Chester as the incumbent of St Peter’s, Leighton and St Leonard’s, Warmingham. Catherine was formerly the curate of St Andrew’s, St Peter’s & All Saints Crewe. Our prayers and best wishes are with her as she takes up this new post

The reality of home schooling

In this Church House Blog  the Revd Jenny Bridgman,  Director of Studies for Pastoral Workers, Associate Vicar of Timperley, and mum of three primary aged children, shares her personal account of the challenges of homeschooling and urges us all to reach out to friends, family and neighbours and “be the calming presence” they might need. Jenny blogs about Leadership, Ministry, Parenting and Spirituality (sometimes all at once!) at Out of the Chancel.

New Director of Outreach begins
The Revd Peter Froggatt has begun his new role as Director of Outreach. Peter leads the new department of Outreach which incorporates the work of the previous departments of Mission and Social Responsibility. More here.

From St Paul’s Pantry (Crewe Foodbank)
Here’s our monthly Foodbank data for December that you may wish to share with your congregations:-

  • Donations of food received weighed 5866kg and we were able to help 257 people during the month

If you are able to donate, we are currently running low on long life milk, sugar, tinned meat pies, and rice pudding. We are open Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 3.30pm for donations at our rear entrance.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
