Welcome to St. Bertoline's, Barthomley, Cheshire

Why we're here today -

That the community may know that St Bertoline's is here to profess the faith, to celebrate it

in worship and prayer, and to share it in fellowship, so that we may say

"We would see Jesus".

My dear Friends,

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have invited every parish of the Church of England to join them in a Week of Prayer for the Mission of the Church. As you will see from the Calendar, this is to be held throughout the week leading up to Whitsunday, May15th. We shall be taking part in this, and focusing on a celebration of Holy Communion each day at 10am at St Bertoline’s, except on Wednesday when there will be the usual celebration at Balterley.

This is clearly not a time that will be suitable for all to take part. On Sunday 8th there will be available a selection of bible readings and prayers for everyone to join in at the time and place of their own choosing, the Holy Communion being the focus of all our prayers each day.

On Wednesday 18th May, the Parochial Church Council is holding its usual springtime Open Meeting at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. Do come and take part, so that we can air our views on ‘Looking Ahead’ for the life of St Bertoline’s.

You will know that the country will be celebrating Her Majesty’s Official 90th Birthday on the weekend of Friday 10th-Sunday 12th June.

On the Sunday morning, our service at the usual time, 10.30am will be focussed on this celebration. We are inviting you now to help with the planning of this by letting us know what you think are the most suitable and your favourite hymns for the occasion. There will be a box in church

in which to place your choices. (Please give the first line of the hymns, not the number). After the service we shall adjourn to the Village Hall for an informal reception.

With best wishes to you all,

Darrel Speedy
