Farewell to ‘our Sandra’, a much-loved colleague
Sandra James has retired after more than 26 years with our diocese. A farewell lunch for Sandra was held at Church House, Daresbury on August 28. She started work as Senior Secretary in the Education Department on 15 May 1989, when Kylie Minogue was at no 1 in the pop charts with ‘Hand on Your Heart’ and Margaret Thatcher has just begun her 11th year as Prime Minister.
Taking hold in our diocese – Jesus Shaped People
We are one of the first dioceses outside of Yorkshire to take Jesus Shaped People (JSP) seriously. Jesus Shaped People is a whole church adventure that helps parishes identify the priorities that Jesus modelled in his ministry – and through living those priorities local churches are renewed in the image of Christ.

ABC church – for Adults, Babies and Children
St Lawrence, Stoak, near Ellesmere Port, has a thriving service specially created for families with young children. ABC Church at St Lawrence began back in March after the parish were pleased to note that many parents who’d had their babies baptised at the church (near Ellesmere Port) were returning with the toddlers.
‘Barnies’ – fine community cohesion and partnership
Archdeacon Ian Bishop visited the ‘Barnies’ garden project at St Barnabas church hall in Crewe recently. It was started by Lesley Christiansen and her team with a grant from the National Lottery some four years ago. That paid for some raised beds and a greenhouse in which to grow fruit and veg for the local community.
Archbishop Cranmer Awards
It’s time to think about entering these annual awards, which involve reading aloud sections from the Book of Common Prayer. The awards are for young people aged 11 to 18. The Chester diocesan heat will be held on Sunday 1 November at Holy Ascension church, Upton, Chester.
