A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal.
At our Gift service on the 15th November 2015, we will be dedicating Christmas Shoe Boxes which will be transported to children around the world. Take a look on the Operation Christmas Child Samaritan's Purse website for details about what you can put in a shoe box.
You can help in different ways:-
1) Finding a shoe box.
2) Collecting items to fill a box and either fill one yourself or bring items to Church to fill boxes together.
3) Use the knitting patterns on the website to make something for the boxes.
4) Donate £3. Each box needs £3 to help with transporting costs.
5) Come on Wednesday 4th November at 3.30pm and Thursday 12th November at 7pm to help decorate and fill boxes.

Sunday 27th September
9.30am 0930live!: The usual lively, informal celebration for families (and others!)
10.45am Morning Worship led by Elizabeth Holmes: a mix of traditional and more modern hymns, special readings and participatory worship.
After this service there will be a ‘Bring and Share’ lunch, to which all are invited. You don’t need to provide superb home-cooked fare – a supermarket offering is just as acceptable. Our church family lunches are always very much enjoyed by those who come – if you’ve not been before, why not join us?
6.00pm Songs of Praise, a traditional service led by Local Preacher Mr Mark Smyth
Gifts of non-perishable foodstuffs and simple toiletries will be received at these services, to be taken to Frodsham Foodbank and Chester Aid for the Homeless. Tinned food with ring-pulls is especially useful for the latter. There will also be a basket for gifts of money.
Monday 28th September
2.30pm Afternoon Praise: a short act of worship led by Edgar Gregory, followed by afternoon tea. A service especially, but not exclusively, for our older friends who find it more difficult to come regularly to Church. All are welcome.
Do come and share in our Harvest celebrations – and why not invite a friend?
Below are the themes for Messy Mice for Sepotember to December 2015. As ever, all are welcome to attend the sessions and more information can be got from Mrs Andrea Ellams, Young Families Worker by e-mailing email@example.com.
