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.

Hartford Picnic in the Park
As a church we will be taking part in the Hartford Picnic in the Park, on the afternoon of Sunday 8th July. This is a great way for us to serve our local community, to meet them where they are and to join in the fun of this big village event.
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 our prayer meetings until further notice. Most meetings are for 20 minutes and the aim has been to choose times that will suit everyone. The meetings start promptly and end on time.
All the prayer meetings are in the Eddowes Room in the church unless stated otherwise. Please enter directly using the vestry door opposite the vicarage, except for Sunday when the church is open.
- Wednesday - 8pm (Prayer Fellowship or Housegroup Meeting). No meeting in the Eddowes Room
- Friday - 6.30am
- Saturday - a virtual prayer meeting using a Facebook or Twitter post published at 8am. No meeting in the Eddowes Room
- Sunday - 9.30am
All are welcome and, if you have any questions, please contact the office.
