As we cannot meet together face-to-face at present, during the online worship on Easter Sunday there will be an opportunity for the Frodsham Methodist Church Family to greet each other.
If you want to be part of this, please send a photograph or video of you and your family wishing the Church Family a Happy Easter by Thursday 9th April to:
This could be recorded on a professional camera but a phone is also fine. Be as creative as you want. Your message could be delivered orally, in writing, or anything else you can think of! But do try to keep the message short so the service does not overrun (too much!).
Do note that the service will be broadcast on YouTube so everyone in the photograph or video should be comfortable with their image being included in the service. And we will try our best to include all submissions received, as long as the format is compatible.
Please help to spread the word!
Announcing the launch of "Frodsham and District Open Hands" (a project of Frodsham Open Hands Limited, of which Rev'd. Andrew Emison is the director), which launched on 30 March in full co-operation and support of Cheshire West & Chester Council, Chester West Voluntary Action in partnership with Frodsham Town Council and Frodsham Churches Together.
“Life Together” will be taking place from Wednesday 12th February to Sunday 16th February.

What a wonderful Christmas it has been. It was wonderful to see so many people in Church for the Community Nativity, Carold by Candlelight and on Christmas Day itself as we welcomed Christ into our world and into our lives. The picture below is of worship on Christmas Day as we all shared the gifts we had received!

Our walk in April was part of the Frodsham Festival of Walks and was led by Kevin and Sue Fairbanks. About 60 people met at Appleton Thorn to start our 4 mile walk though the Lumb Brook Valley, into the Dingle and along the Mersey Way, and into the Walled Garden at Grappenhall Heys, returning to our cars through woodland and field edges. We returned tired and a little bit muddy to have tea and cake at Frodsham Methodist Church.
A big thank you to all who helped in the kitchen on Tuesday for the Pancake Party. We made hundreds of pancakes for the hundred plus people who came through the door to mark Shrove Tuesday.
