    Dear Friends

    “A few weeks ago my friend went viral.

    It started out as a simple response to the suffering of others. Hearing the news of the attack on the Mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, Andrew made a simple decision. He would walk down to the local Mosque near where he lives in Manchester and, during the time of Friday prayers, stand outside in solidarity.

    To explain his actions he took some cardboard and wrote on it a simple message that he held up. It read:

    “You are my friends. I will watch while you pray”.

    He was greeted and thanked by worshippers as they left the Mosque. He went home.

    However, someone had taken a photo of him with his placard and posted it on social media. It went viral and soon he had messages from all around the world, with several television interviews internationally.

    Why, I wonder, did it catch the imagination of thousands? Perhaps in this time of political division and posturing, where what and who we are against is shouted out so much more loudly than who we are for, a simple sign of friendship was refreshing. An act of kindness, even unspoken like this one, powerfully speaks of our call to love our neighbour, even when they are not like us.

    His action, though small and simple, has made this world a better place. I wonder what you will do?

    The Quinquennial

    Every 5 years we must have our church property inspected by an independent architect whose role it is to ensure the longevity of the fabric of the building.

    Contained within the report are four action lists for recommended work. We now have to draw up our Action Plan to start ticking off the list but we are only able to do this with your continued support.

    Parish Safeguarding 

    The Church of England is called to share the good news of God’s salvation through Jesus Christ. The life of our communities and institutions is integral to how we address this task. The good news speaks of welcome for all, with a particular regard for those who are most vulnerable, into a community where the value and dignity of every human being is affirmed and those in positions of responsibility and authority are truly trustworthy. Being faithful to our call to share the gospel therefore compels us to take with the utmost seriousness the challenge of preventing abuse from happening and responding well where it has.’  HANDBOOK
