A Special Birthday

A Happy Birthday to Jean Savage who has a ‘significant’ birthday this Sunday (3 May). We wish her all the best for her birthday. Jean is certainly missing her church family and especially her Wednesday mornings. 

Happy Birthday to Jean!



Daily Hope

THE  Archbishop of Canterbury  has launched  a free telephone line , Daily Hope, to give more people access to worship, prayer, and reflections while churches are closed.

Daily Hope has been available since Sunday and runs for 24 hours a day. It provides Church of England prayers, hymns, and reflections for those who dial in. The number is 0800 8048044.

I’ve just heard that The Wistaston Village Fete for 2020 has, unsurprisingly, been cancelled for this year. More details will appear on the Community Council’s Facebook in due course. 


To keep in touch with the church, it’s news and updates and be kept informed of resources which you can use at home for prayer and worship, then please join our Prayer & Communication email list via this link:

Church Staff

We have had to take the decision to furlough the paid church staff, that is Polly, Teresa & Derek, for the foreseeable future which means under the new government scheme as a church we can claim 80% of their wages back, we will continue to pay them 100% whilst we can. Many thanks to them and for all the help they have given to the church. This, of course, means the office is closed until further notice but the answerphone and emails are being checked daily

Covid-19 and it’s effects of church life: As well as worship being suspended, we have had to cancel all events and close the Church Hall. We pray for all those who are in isolation and will be hugely affected by this.
