Notices for the coming weekScreen Shot 2014-02-19 at 16.09.26

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the Churches Together Walk in Tuesday.  We had a great turn out from St Michael’s and across the churches and it was a really enjoyable day.  Ailsa. 

Barn Dance Friday 4th October With our Barn Dance and Harvest Supper now only a couple of weeks away, please do purchase a ticket if you can – and think about who you can bring.  we would like to sell some more tickets to enable us to meet our costs in putting on what will be a great evening of fun and fellowship on Friday 4th October.  And remember that you don’t have to dance (although I bet you will!).  Join us at 7 for food, fun and a really great time.  Tickets are available from Angela and Ailsa.

Celebration of Creativity  Plans are going ahead for our celebration of Creativity Weekend to be held here at St Michael’s from 18 – 20 October culminating in a special service on Sunday 20 October.  There is now a signup sheet in the Book corner for people to help set up, serve refreshments and welcome visitors.  All exhibits need to be in church by Sunday 13 October.  Please see Angela Lockett to collect a car to label your work and submit it with the finished item.

You shop –  Amazon donates to our church. If you shop online with Amazon, then you can now choose our church as you charity of choice, by shopping through smile.amazon.co.uk

This gives you the full Amazon service, but Amazon will then donate 0.5% of the purchase price directly to our church. There are leaflets at the back of church in the book corner and by the collection plates showing you with simple pictures, how to select our church as your chosen charity. Kate Smith.

Christmas Fair The date this year will be Saturday 16th November 1.30pm – 4pm Please contact me if you have any thoughts or new ideas, it will be a parish event so everyone is welcome to have input and it will be gladly received. New helpers always welcome. Thank you Heather Coppack

Children’s Society Boxes. Please may I have the boxes in for the annual opening. I apologise for being a bit later this year. I should be in church at the 9am service most weeks, so will be happy to accept the boxes when you bring them, or I can arrange to come & collect them if you let me know.  Kathy Runham.

Play My Part:  After a loss of confidence following a back problem last year, I am now back running!  I am not quite ready for a Half Marathon but am doing my first race this year, a little 10K at Tatton Park on Saturday 2 November.  I thought I would use this as an opportunity to “Play my Part” in raising funds for our church and I am hoping you will be able to sponsor me in raising £100 (or more!). for St Michael’s.  There is a sponsor form at the back of church and I would be grateful for anything you feel you can give.  Thank you.  Ailsa.

Andy’s Bike ride – Thank you.  Many thanks to everyone who supported my recent Bike ride in Scotland. Team NotFastJustGlorious as at today (09/09) we have raised £2030 between us. Many thanks for all your support. Andy

From the Wirral Youth for Christ Prayer Diary:  Pray for the work of the Wirral Youth for Christ team

From the Chester Diocese Cycle of Prayer:  Intercession and Discipleship. In the late 1960s Gonville french-Beytagh was a prominent opponent of the apartheid regime in Southern Africa.  As Dean of Rain Mary’s Cathedral Johannesburg, he managed humanitarian assistance to local black families.  He was arrested in 1971 and accused of furthering unlawful activities.  Subjected to brutal interrogation and solitary confinement, he was convicted of subversion.  Early the next year he successfully appealed against his conviction and left South Africa on the day of his release.  from his exiled London home, he exercised an influential ministry of spiritual direction and wrote movingly of his own psychological and faith struggles.

In his book A Glimpse of Glory (1986, DLT) French-Beytagh wrote of intercession in this terms: ‘Your prayers are necessary and if you will not bother to intercede you are refusing someone a source of strength and help.  Consideer this world in the present day – the fear, the starvation, the many kinds of distress, and our terrifying weakness.  Some of the trouble exists because Christians are too damned lazy to pray – and I mean that literally.  Jesus loves the whole world and our concern should reach out towards the evil and horror of the whole world.’

Pray for the determined and tenacious intercession of Christ’s whole Church.

Pray for the Church of the Province of Uganda.  Archbishop Stanley Ntagali, Uganda and Bishop of Kampala.
