KATHY Runham & family would like to thank all of St Michael’s church family for the love &   care shown to them on the loss of their much loved Ian. We would especially like to thank all who baked & looked after the food & drink, moved furniture & set up the tables. It was such a comfort to me to be in a familiar environment &   not to have to deal with strangers. My extended family feel   reassured having seen for themselves what a caring & loving church I belong to.  Special thanks go to Lesley & Eirian for collecting the food from Morrisons, & saving me all the worry of it, & to Graham for all his care. We are very grateful, thank you.

From the Chester Diocese Cycle of Prayer:  50 years since the first Moon Landing   (Fifth Sunday after Trinity)

Yesterday was the anniversary of the first moon-landing.

I was a 16-year-old and in my pyjamas watching one of the most wonderful moments in history on our black and white television. In fact, half-a-billion people on earth were watching. It was 2.56am in the morning of 20th July 1969 when Commander Neil Armstrong stepped out onto the Moon’s surface in the Sea of Tranquillity, nearly 20 minutes after the opening of the hatch on the Eagle landing craft. This was the first time a human being had set foot on another world. His first words famously were, ‘That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.’

This moment is arguably humanity’s greatest ever feat of exploration. For two hours Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin explored the lunar surface on foot while Michael Collins piloted the Apollo 11 orbited around the Moon.

The huge Saturn V rocket blasted off at the Kennedy Space Centre on 16th July and propelled Apollo 11 into orbit around the earth and then set off for its 3-day journey to the Moon. A day after, Armstrong and Aldrin climbed into the Eagle lunar module and began the descent to the surface of the Moon. This was a very hazardous part of the mission, the surface is littered with boulders, the simple computer sounded alarms and Armstrong had to manually pilot the ship to a safe place, there was only 30 seconds of fuel remaining.

Pray for the safe and peaceful utilization of space exploration.
