Over Tabley Easter push


undefinedSt Paul's Church at Over Tabley, near Knutsford, reached out to families this Easter. After the Easter Sunday service at the recently spruced-up roadside church there was a sale of locally-made cakes. There was also the offer of a meal for only 1 per child (adults paid the usual prices) at the nearby Little Chef restaurant.

St Paul’s – on the busy A556 road which carries traffic bound for the nearby M6 – is currently being assisted by the Revd Sue Talbot .Other clergy are also helping, as is Graham Sheen, a Reader at nearby Lostock Gralam.

Improvements have been made to the exterior of the building and sparkly lights have been places in the trees in the churchyard – for extra welcome at night.

The parish has redefined itself as a ‘pilgrim church’ that welcomes visitors – and is also reaching out to help the surrounding rural community by encouraging local businesses.

After the Easter Sunday service at St Paul’s there was a sale of home-made cakes by Lymm resident Deborah Townsend and her partner Marc Nation of ‘Baked with Love’ – a local business start-up.

Deborah and Marc (pictured above with some of their cakes). They are to donate some of the proceeds of the cake sale to the parish. They also plan to open a café called Victoriana in Knutsford in June.

Easter pastries made by parishioners were on sale in the church on Sunday.

Right across our diocese, churches were open over the long weekend as Christians prepared to celebrate Easter, marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion – and the great hope that event gave to humankind.
