Good Friday “An hour at the Cross”

Good Friday saw a quiet and contemplative congregation take part in our Hour at the Cross service at St. James Church. We focused on the roles of some lesser known characters from the Passion story: Pilate’s wife, the impenitent thief and the women followers at the cross.

“Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies it bears much fruit.”  John 12: 24.

Please join us for our celebratory Easter Sunday Eucharist, at 10am on Sunday 1st April, at St. James Church, Shireshead, Forton, Lancashire.

Mothers Day Sunday 11th March 2018

Sunday 11th March 2018 saw our Mothering Sunday service take place at St. James. We saw pictorial tributes to our Mothers past and present, and distributed daffodils at the end of the service.

“And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant.  From now on all generations will call me blessed.” Luke 1: 46-48.

We give thanks to God for all Mothers, past, present and future, and pray for them to be strong, blessed and fulfilled in their nurturing role within their families.

We would like to invite all Mothers – and their families – to come and join us for worship at St. James Church, Shireshead, Forton, Lancashire. Click here for service times.
