We must begin with our concerns for Ken and Jean S. Their situation has been very difficult and changeable of late  and at the time of print they are both in hospital needing lot of  care and all of our prayer support. Pray for their day to day needs and also their future which is going to be far from straightforward.     

Rev McDade led a very suitable funeral service in June for Mrs Dorothy Horrocks. We send our condolences to her family.

Our new friend at church, Maria from Moldavia has asked if anyone would be able to take her as a paying guest from September to December/January. Her present accommodation ends in September and she would prefer to live with a Christian friend in the Leigh area. She works part time and needs to be in the locale. Could you help?

We do once more need to lovingly ask everyone to contribute to a period of “stillness” and quiet in church before the service starts   to allow us to draw near to God in quiet anticipation.

At the AGM in October we will be looking to appoint/reappoint deacons. All 3

current deacons are coming to the end of

their terms of office, It is not yet clear

whether all will stand for re-election or not.

In any case 3 is the bare minimum, so we

would like to appoint more deacons. WE


NOW, and seeking God’s direction as to who

we should be calling to serve Him in this

important way. Our rules state that deacons

must be over 18 and have been a church

member for 1 year. There is a process to

follow for making nominations which Val will

explain nearer the time.
