Good News!

As we celebrated our 125th Church Birthday, reflected on the past and looked forward to the future we learnt that the “National Lottery Community Fund” has accepted our application for a grant.

The following week, as we commenced our first worship service in our 126th year, we received word that our application had been successful. We have been awarded a grant of £6,200 for an Architectural Feasibility Study.

This study is needed to draw up the changes we need to make to our property to allow us to fulfil our mission and worship goals.

This success is due to our funding adviser, Enid, and the hard work of all our own growth teams.

This is one large step along the path we need to follow and the timing of these events suggests our Lord is blessing our direction.

We also need to say thank you for the funding from The National Lottery Community Fund.

Church Prayer – St James

We pray today for members, visitors and friends of St. James and the surrounding community. We especially pray today for our circuit and visiting Ministers, local preachers and worship leaders as they help us all look to the future through the love and partnership of God. We especially pray at this time for our new church youth projects and for our larger community of young children as they take exams and prepare also for their future. Lord may your love and guidance be with us all at this time of renewal and change, in Jesus name. Amen
Minister: Revd. Martin Wood

Church Prayer – Sankey Valley Methodist Circuit

In a time of transition and change we pray for the churches of the Sankey Valley Circuit and all those who hold offices in our churches. We see resources declining as ministers move away and no new ministers move in to replace them. Help us to see this situation not in the context of decline, bus as a challenge to reflect on what our churches do and whether we can operate more effectively by working together. We pray that the holy Spirit will show us how best to respond to the challenge of changing times and to see in this changing context, opportunities for mission and service. Remind us that God’s love for all creation never changes.
Superintendent Minister – Sankey Valley Circuit – Revd. David Easton

Celebrating our 125th Birthday by sharing Cake

On Sunday we shared our birthday celebrations and the love we have for God with the people of Latchford by distributing birthday cakes.

At 11am we gave, with our love, 190 cakes away in the Latchford village, followed by a further 90 cakes later in the day.

A special thanks to everyone who provided / baked the cakes, prepared them for sharing and to those who walked them around the village. We are truly blessed. xxx

Anniversary Celebration Weekend – Next weekend – October 11th to 13th

Anniversary Celebration Weekend – Next weekend – October 11th to 13th. Our Church Celebration of 125 years of witness in Latchford. On Saturday 12th October the Church will be open from 11:00am to 4:00pm, with an exhibition of photography – past, present and future, flower displays and various kinds of music throughout the day.  There will be refreshments for people to come and share our celebrations with us.  We will need people to steward in the Church during these times.  We also need people to bake cakes or donate bought cakes both for the refreshments, but we would also like a further 250 small cakes to give out in the village and the houses near Church.  We will also need help in the kitchen throughout the day.   There is a sheet on the pulpit table for anyone who can help with any of these things to put your name down, what time you can steward or help in the kitchen and how long for.  If you need any more information, please see Jean.  Please can you help with our special weekend?
