Prayer Study Group -  7.30pm at Norma’s, all are welcome!

Pastoral Visitation - Pastoral visitation is an important part of any church's ministry and can't just be done by one person.  With that in mind, we would like to set up official visitation teams who work in collaboration with the clergy.  In this day of political correctness and GDPR, there are certain measures that we need to follow when visiting.  With that in mind we have asked Bob Banton from the Diocese to run a 4 week course (one evening a week) on pastoral visitation after Easter.  Would you be interested in being part of the pastoral visitation team?  If so, can you give your name to Andrew or Alan asap.  Once we have numbers, we can let Bob know, and sort out a start date.  Thank you.

Prayer/Study Group
- meet at Norma's on a Monday evening at 7.30pm.  Everyone welcome.

Home Communion - Home Communion will be taken out on the 2nd April.  If you know of anyone who would like to have Communion at home please see or contact Norma in church

 Parish Office - Bookings for baptisms and weddings will take place on Thursday 4th April from 7-8pm in church.  Please contact Alan Finch on 928 3919 for more information.

Foodbank Team - We are on duty next at St Leonard's on 5th April. With grateful thanks to everyone who helps us so much.

Articles needed for the magazine - We really do need articles for our magazine.  Maybe you have memories to share about St Philips or Litherland; a poem or story that has made you smile, or a photograph of past  times.  Hope to hear from you - Pauline.
