Thursday Evening Services at St Catherine’s
In view of the limited availability of clergy to cover the Thursday evening services at St Catherine’s, it has been necessary to issue a revised timetable of services. On dates where clergy are available, the usual two services will take place, one commencing at 6pm and the other commencing at 7pm.
The dates of services up until the end of August are as follows:-
9th June 7th July 14th July
21st July 28th July 11th August
From the 1st September onwards, services will take place fortnightly up until the end of October and further information will be provided.
Therefore from the 1st September, the dates of services are:
1st September 15th September 29th September
6th October 20th October
For children who may still need to attend church for school applications, a full suite of services will take place every Sunday during this time and parents and children can attend services at St. Catherine’s, St. Georges, St Michaels and St. Simons and St. Jude’s, or indeed any church throughout The Farnworth and Methodist Circuit. This should give ample opportunity for school church attendance requirements to be fulfilled.
We are seeking volunteers to help us distribute lunches to young school people in the school holidays as we have done and he is past, on behalf of Urban Outreach. We are currently in liaison with Urban Outreach to establish what is required this year. Lunches will be distributed over a six week period in the summer school holidays, commencing Monday 25th July and concluding Friday the 2nd September.
The lunches will be distributed Monday to Friday and does not include the August bank holiday.
If you feel you can volunteer to be put on a rota to help with the distribution to young people who may not otherwise receive a lunch during the school holidays, could we ask you to email Andrew.email@example.com or drop a text or WhatsApp to 07770 571 625, providing your own email address and mobile telephone number in order for our coordinator, Michelle Smith, to contact you to arrange the deployment of volunteers.
