Bishop Libby at St Cross!

Libby-wwWe look forward to welcoming Bishop Libby to St Cross on the morning of Mothering Sunday! Bishop Libby, the Bishop of Stockport in the Diocese of Chester, was the first woman ever to be consecrated as a Bishop in the Church of England. We are very excited that she has been able to find time, in her very busy diary, to come and share a morning service with us.

The service is at 10:30AM on Sunday 6th March 2016 at St Cross Church, Appleton Thorn. For further details, please phone the vicarage (01925 730276).

St Cross Christmas Fayre

Our Fayre was opened by our church warden Kath Fowler, who introduced several children from Appleton Thorn choir who sang carols beautifully for us. I would like to say Thank You to everyone who donated, helped and supported the Fayre it turned out to be a really good afternoon, lots of new and friendly faces. We welcomed the gardeners from YOI who brought a colourful array of plants and planters to sell.

After the raffle was drawn, the 200 club was drawn, which is run by Mr Syd Edwards

More new members would be welcome, congratulations to all who won. Lots of generous spending and a well-earned cup of tea and cake afterwards earned our church funds with a grand total of £834-39.

Many Thanks,

May Bratherton.
