C: Vacant. LM: Stephen Cook. Lord, the Light of your love is shining on St. Mary's as we celebrated the 150th anniversary of our church's foundation. We thank you for Catherine Page who took on the responsibility for collecting the shillings needed to build the church, and we see how her efforts have inspired members of the church to offer their services for the good of the local community. We thank you too for the lovely fellowship within the church. Let it continue to grow and make a difference to the local villages. May God's mercy and blessing remain with us during the vacancy so that His choice of Vicar will be made know to us in due course.

Brinnington Church Plant (video above): Rev Andy Williams was appointed to Brinnington both as vicar to St Luke’s church and with the additional challenge of planting a new church in the parish. Brinnington sits in the top half of one percent of the most deprived parishes in the country. It’s a welcoming place but it needs people who will commit to bring the transforming life of the gospel to its streets. The Church is now seeking to recruit the core team of the new church plant.
