From the Rectory
Great news, from next Sunday 6th December we can resume back to 'normal' services. We will have services at 09.00am, 10.30am and our annual Toy and Christingle service in the afternoon at 3.45pm.
About 100 members of the public gathered round the War Memorial for the brief wreath laying ceremony on Remembrance Sunday. It was a privilege to welcome the Bishop of Blackburn who conducted the ceremony and also to welcome our MP Katherine Fletcher who read a Bible passage on reconciliation. Representatives of the church, our 2 parish councils, the Scouts and our 2 Primary schools laid wreaths.
The churchyard with over 1000 poppies with the model soldier and the church porch with the wonderful poppy arrangements are all stunning reminders of the sacrifice of so many. Please do try and visit the church and churchyard before the displays are removed. Enjoy the photographs on our website.
Bible studies will continue weekly on Monday and Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm online via Zoom.
We are urged to pray. The church is open every day with suggestions for prayer inside. And you might like to click on the link for the daily prayers during Lockdown organised by the global prayer initiative Thy Kingdom Come https://www.thykingdomcome.global/stories/prayerforthenation
With prayers and best wishes

Safeguarding - As a Church we have adopted the House of Bishops ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ policy and the Parish Safeguarding Handbook, incorporating the House of Bishop’s Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance. Our PCC has formally adopted this and signed the Safeguarding Policy Statement Promoting a Safer Church. Details of our Parish Safeguarding Officer can be found in the ‘Contact Us’ section on the website. We have also displayed the Promoting a Safer Church poster prominently within our Church. All those working with children and adults at risk have undergone safer recruitment, received safeguarding training and support.
