NEWS FROM THE PARISH
This notice sheet marks the last one that Ann Glacki our administrator will produce for us. On Tuesday she will start a new job, co-ordinating funerals for all the clergy and churches in the Wigan deanery. We wish her all the best in this new venture, a similar scheme may well be rolled out in the future in other parts of the church of England. So despite rugby league sensitivities do pray for this new and exciting project! We want to thank Ann for the hard work and support she has given us and our predecessors over the years managing a myriad of different tasks for our parish. This week has been one of handover from Ann to our new administrator Lorraine Sheehan who hails from Liverpool and has a background in administration, accounts and being a community outreach worker, welcome Lorraine. Please do help her with your local knowledge, insights and encouragement as she settles into her new role. So there is change afoot in the church office, God is doing a new thing, what might that be for you?
With Love and Prayers, Simon.

As Christians we believe in the love of God, shown to all the world through God sending His one and only Son, Jesus, to free us from our sins which have distanced us as a people from God.
Jesus as our Lord and Saviour teaches us that God is very close to us, and wants dwell within our hearts and be part of our everyday lives. God, through His Holy Spirit that is God’s very self, equips us so we can serve Him with joy in this life, and look forward to eternal life through the death and Resurrection of His Son.
If you would like to further your own spiritual journey or learn about the Christian faith, then please contact one of our clergy team through the Parish Office, who will be more than happy to help.
