Church Logo

We would like to say thank you for all the hard work, time and effort that has been placed into designing a logo for our Church website and publications. We have tried the submissions on our website but unfortunately when we scale them down to the small sizes we need they loose clarity and shine.  We therefore hope you will try once more, please see below for more details and an example.

The deadline for submissions has been extended and left open for the next few weeks.

Circuit Charity

The Circuit Charity for the last two years has been Parkinson UK. We are now looking for a new charity to support from September 2018. Proposals are invited from all circuit churches (one from each church). The proposal should be on an A4 page and give a brief outline of the charity and why the circuit should consider adopting it. The circuit Leadership Team will consider the proposals and a maximum of three will be shortlisted for consideration. The 3 churches whose proposals are shortlisted will be asked to give a short presentation at the June Circuit meeting and a vote will then be taken at a meeting to decide which one will be accepted as the circuit charity for the next two years. Proposals should be submitted to Jane Otterson, Senior Circuit Steward, by 1st June preferably by e-mail. mailto:janeotterson@gmail.com

We give thanks for the people of our Circuit as we seek to live out our calling as the disciples of Jesus and ask for your prayers as the Circuit faces the challenge of redefining itself in the context of the changing face of Methodism.

Church Prayer  –  Lymm 

Lord God we thank you that you do not need us to be part of a perfect church or for us to be perfect Christians. But we know that you have called us broken and imperfect people to care for a fractured world and to journey with its hurting people. Show us how to use our gifts in your service and our brokenness to your glory. Guide us as we continue to discern your will for this community now and in the future. That what we do may be in your strength as sometimes that is all we have left.
Minister: Revd. Sue Smith
