I write to you in the season of Harvest, as we look forward to the climax of our teaching series ‘How Green is our God?’ and celebrate our Harvest Festival. We start with our Harvest Supper on October 1st at 6.30 pm and follow with ‘All We Can’ and Christian Aid on 2nd October. We have special guest speakers Claire Welch (9.15 and 10.45am) and Helen How (7pm Café Church), plus we will be engaging with visitors to the Makers Market with a Climate Change Petition from Christian Aid.
It will be a very significant weekend for our church and the local community.
[ Julie’s appointment has enabled The Welcome Church to have a visible and credible presence both in the Café and on the estate. People in real need turn to Julie for help and the children seem to adore her. She has become the hands and feet of Christ on the estate.]
Longridge Passion—the cast was made up of local residents and members of the Welcome Church and the Circuit Churches including the Circuit Superintendent.
Tour of Britain and Heritage Open Days
In the last month we’ve had another very positive Makers Market, and also opened the church for the Tour of Britain and the Heritage Open Days. If you were in town for the Tour of Britain you’ll know there was a great atmosphere around the times the riders came through, although the drivers stranded on Princess Street didn’t seem to be fully enjoying it. A good number of people took advantage of our offer of a free brew, some chat and a place to relax, and of course the very welcome toilets. More importantly though we were able to provide help, support and encouragement in a few cases.
I did say that September and October could be warmer than July and August, and so far September has indeed been beautiful. I love autumn, the colours are so beautiful and there is nothing quite like a walk in the woods kicking the leaves as you go.
Written and performed by our own church members, this new play is being performed for the first time ever at KMC on 16th and 17 December 2016.
It depicts a Christian view of Christmas in both an exciting and original way.
Every year, KMC collect toys for Wood Street Mission - their Christmas Project provides gifts to children in central Manchester who would otherwise receive little or nothing.
We will be collecting shoeboxes again this year, these will be dedicated on Sunday 6th November.
Leaflets are available in the entrance porch and from the Church Office.
