Make, Taste & See
"Make, Taste & See" is an opportunity to drop into church during the school holidays. It's open for all to drop in anytime from 10am until 12 noon. There will be coffee, cake, craft and film clips.
Come just once or come every time, stay a while or pop in for a bit. Make, Taste & See is ideal for families with primary and pre-school aged children, but it is open for people of all ages to come into our church and have a drink and a chat.
The dates for 2018 are listed below:
- Monday 30th July
- Monday 6th August
- Monday 13th August
- Monday 20th August
- Monday 29th October
Holiday Club 2018
This year's Holiday Club runs from Tuesday 28th to Friday 31st August, from 10am till 1pm, and the theme is ‘To Eternity and Beyond’.
You can also download and print a registration form.
Tots & Tinies over the summer
During the summer holidays, there will be no Tots sessions on a Wednesday morning in the Church Centre. Instead, we will have an informal get together each week where you can just turn up to play.
Nothing will be led – just free play in the fresh air with friends. Meet each Wednesday morning from 10am at the park on Bradburns Lane, next to The Grange Senior School, opposite the tennis courts (click here for the location on Google Maps). As this is a public play area, older children and non-tots regulars are also welcome to join us.
Churchyard Grass Cutting
Many people have commented on the state of St John's churchyard, in particular the very long grass. The church is acutely aware of this problem: it has an impact on the appearance of our village and causes distress to families visiting graves.
However, the churchyard is the responsibility of Cheshire West and Cheshire Council (CWAC), not the church.

A Taste of Harvest
During the first two weeks of October, we will be running an event to celebrate Harvest, and all our local schools will be invited. The format of the event will be similar to the replacement Easter story trail that we ran a year ago.
Time to pray
We have decided to continue two of our short 20 minute prayer meetings until further notice. These meetings are on Friday morning at 6.30am and Sunday morning at 9.30am. We also have other opportunities to pray which are also listed below:
- Wednesday - 8pm (Prayer Fellowship in the Church Centre or Housegroup Meeting. See St John's this week for schedule).
- Friday - 6.30am for 20 minutes in the Eddowes Room. Please enter directly using the vestry door opposite the vicarage.
- Saturday - a virtual prayer meeting using a Facebook or Twitter post published at 8am.
- Sunday - 9.30am in the Eddowes Room before the Sunday morning service.
All are welcome and, if you have any questions, please contact the office.
