Remembrance Service – 13th November 2022

Our service will begin at 10.45am with all restrictions observed and refreshments provided afterwards.

Autumn Plant Sale, 10th & 11th September, 2022.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the weekend event, setting up, selling plants and bulbs, watering, brewing tea, baking cakes, providing art, selling Bric-a-Brac and books, clearing up and cashing up. So many help to make this the success and major social event that it is and none of it would be worthwhile without all those who come to buy the plants, art, Bric-a-Brac and refreshments. Also, let us not forget all those who came to sign the condolence book for our Late Queen Elizabeth ll. Thank you for taking the time to write so many wonderful comments. The final result was a wonderful £1,200 to pay for the porch repairs on the church South door.

Ukraine Benefit Concert, 2nd July, 2022.

St Bart’s was proud to support the concert and help to raise the £1,000 the concert added to the Refugee Fund, which now exceeds £3,000.

Well done to Richard Cluley for organising the evening, to the four bands who took part, to Ellie for her solo and to the small army of volunteers who made the whole thing possible.

Jordan Gatley

We’re incredibly saddened to hear of the death of 24 year old Jordan Gatley who died while fighting in Ukraine. Jordan is the son of Dean Gatley who lives on Home Farm Park. Jordan also leaves behind mum, Sally, and brother, Adam, who both live in Sandbach. Jordan was an incredibly brave and highly trained soldier who felt it his duty to support Ukraine in their fight against Russia. We invite you all to pray for Jordan and his family and friends who are mourning the loss of a beloved hero.

Platinum Jubilee Celebrations at St Bart’s, 2nd – 5th June, 2022.

It has been a busy extended Bank Holiday break for our church starting with the Official Jubilee Beacon lighting on the church tower on the 2nd.

The following day there was a champagne and afternoon tea in church with all donations being donated to the Ukraine Refugee Appeal.

Both events were well attended and the Ukraine fund grew by £276. On Sunday we held our Jubilee Service followed by lunch and were pleased to welcome Richard’s quartet who played for the service.

Our Hymns were ‘In Christ Alone’, ‘I Vow to Thee My Country’ and the National Anthem, but the quartet also played Canzon by Gabrieli.

God Save The Queen!

Well the ‘best laid plans’ have gone up the spout again, so our next activity is in support of the Ukraine Refugee Fund. Two members of the MAD Group have been asked to fill in between acts at the concert on 2nd July at 7.30pm in St Bart’s church, Church Minshull. All proceeds will go to the fund and MAD Members are asked to support the event in any way they can. Thank you.
