Church Holiday 2015 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 27 May 2015 09:20

"They're off!! -- The Church holiday group set off this morning on their annual jaunt, their base this year being Llandudno, with trips to Anglesey, Llangollen, Mold, Portmeirion and Porthmadog also included in their week-long itinerary.

Doubtless there will also be plenty of opportunities for retail therapy throughout the week, as well as the usual relaxed banter on the coach.

Unkindly labelled "Saga Tours" in some quarters, there were no zimmers in sight, and only a few walking aids as they boarded their coach at the church.  Rumours that Bob Craig and Ian Maxwell had been allocated seats in the boot on account of their behaviour on previous trips have been strongly denied by the Treasurer/organiser, May Shaw -- but further evidence to the contrary is awaited.................

We wish them well, and hope that the sun shines on them throughout their holiday.

STOP PRESS.   It has just been reported that after 3 hours they have now left Haughton Hall Garden Centre in Carlisle (journey time 1 hour/shopping time 2 hours)!"

St Andrews has Talents PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 19 April 2015 15:44

Talent...The special ability of a person or group to do something well

The members of the congregation will be invited to think about what they are good at or enjoy doing and how they could use this talent to help the congregation and the church. The answer may be different for each of us, but the answer should not be ‘nothing’ for we all have our strengths and talents.

It maybe that your skills and abilities are a bit of a mystery even to you, because you don’t really see them as special but the headings below will allow you to relate to what you are good at.

Communication, Motivator, Administator, Creative,

I.T., Listener, Leadership, Driving, Organiser,

Ideas, Hospitality, Food, People Person,

Practical skills, Music/song,

Empathy, Caring,



The suggestions are not complete so think about your own strengths and hopefully you will be able to see general areas where you would be able to help.

This is an invitation to contribute to the continuing work of the church with whatever gifts, skills or abilities you may have. Please think about what you are able to offer. Don’t be modest .

New Times for Sunday Services PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 10 April 2015 15:12

Please note there are changes to the Sunday service times of both churches and these will take effect from Sunday 12th April 2015 as follows:

St. Andrew's Church 10:00 am,


    Livingstone Memorial Church 11:30 am

You will note that our service time is earlier than our existing start time and we hope this will not present any significant inconvenience.  However, should this earlier time present difficulty then you will be made most welcome at Livingstone Memorial at the later time of 11:30am.  The same courtesy will be extended by us to members of Livingstone Memorial, who may find the later start time problematic.
