See you in September …

Our house groups are taking a summer break, as usual. The Thursday afternoon group had its final meeting on July 4th, and the Thursday evening groups finish two weeks later, on July 18th. Then the evening groups re-start on September 12th and the afternoon group on the 19th. We are thinking of exploring another of the Old Testament books, using a study guide, and new members are always welcome – please ask Rev Rodney Green, Rev Graham Smallman, or Rev Debra.


And the JC Squad also take a break in summer, but not before they’ve had a trip out on Sunday July 21st (with parents). NB There’s a meeting after morning service on Sunday 28th July to plan the JC Squad leaders’ rota from September 8th onwards, and new helpers are welcome to attend.


Prayer together

On Wednesday July 31st at 7.30pm the Mission Community prayer gathering will be held at St John’s, in the chapel. The evening will commence with prayers and reflection and end with the short service of Compline – a service not often used but, as this is the last prayer gathering of the series, it seems appropriate.


Scargill weekend 2025

This time next year we will have the chance to visit Scargill House in the Yorkshire Dales for a church weekend, from July 11th to 13th, 2025. This is a great opportunity to relax as a church family and renew our spiritual batteries. We have 20 places available, but as yet don’t know the prices for the rooms that will be available.


Is God calling you to lend a hand?

Over the summer please also pray about your gifts and talents, and see if God is calling you into any new areas within the church. There are lots of opportunities to use skills such as flower arranging, singing, or reading at the service, helping with refreshments, working with the JC Squad, joining our handbell team, etc. Think and see where God may be directing you, and speak to Rev Debra, Rev Rodney or one of the churchwardens if you feel you can help in any area.


Please note . . .

Our Coffee, Tea and Chat afternoon is on Tuesday 6th August, from 2pm to 3.30pm. Do come along, and bring any friends and family: it is nice to meet up to chat!


Thursday Holy Communion services are to be held at St. John’s at 10.30am on 18th July, 1st , 15th and 29th August, and 5th September, and at St Michael’s Flixton at 10.15am on 25th July and 8th and 22nd August.

Join the JC Squad!

'The J C Squad' is the new name for our Sunday School, and it runs at 10.30am during morning service. Children rejoin their parents in church at the end of the main service and often share with the whole congregation something of what they've been doing that day.
