Plant Sale May 2021

Plant Sale May 2021

Thank you to the army of helpers and our many visitors to the Plant Sale and Art Exhibition over the Bank Holiday weekend.

In spite of the wet Monday afternoon, the event made £10,256 in total, which would not be possible without all that support.

We are so grateful.

Death of HRH Duke of Edinburgh

The congregation and PCC of St Bart’s join with the rest of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth in mourning the loss of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, and give thanks to God for his extraordinary life of dedicated service. We offer our sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family at this sad time and will remember them in our prayers.

Duke of Edinburgh

Prince Philip continually demonstrated his unfailing support and unstinting loyalty to Her Majesty The Queen for 73 years, which was exemplary and consistently put the interests of others ahead of his own, provided an outstanding example of Christian service.

Palm Sunday 28th March 2021

For this special service at St Bart’s, we were once again limited to a Service of the Word, but the congregation were given palm crosses and were able to listen to the hymns for the day.

The bells rang out and the sun joined us, so we were pleased to be celebrating this important day in the Christian Calendar among friends and with some normality once more.

It was lovely to have a good turn out today and to welcome new residents, the Rev. Lesley and John.

Celia and Simon did the readings and collect, while Tim and Jane led us in prayers.

Thank you to all who turned up to take their traditional complimentary bunch of daffodils at this special service.

BBC Radio Stoke Interview

River Weaver Flooded

Listeners to Radio Stoke may have been surprised to hear our churchwarden, John Headon, being interviewed by presenter Liz Ellis at 3.30 this afternoon. Liz asked John about the village being cut off last night when Over Road, to Winsford was flooded and the bridge over Eel Brook, where it joins the River Weaver went under water. Sadly, the adjacent house, flooded last February was inundated again. John explained the road was still closed by the police, but some vehicles were going through and the water levels were now dropping. Asked what kind of village Church Minshull was, John commented on the 16th Century houses here and the excellent community spirit that had twice won awards and has carried the village through the Covid crisis and will continue to support local residents. This had been achieved by the Parish Council and parish church working together and Liz said the village sounded idyllic and wished us well for the future.
