Cathedral of the Fylde Appeal

 

St Helen's Church is a Grade 1 listed Church and is now recognised with Blackburn Diocese as the Catherdral of the Fylde. St Helen's is open daily from 10am - 4pm for you to have a look around the beautiful stained glass windows and other historic interests. There are points of interest around the church for you to learn some of its interesting history.

 

The church has recently undergone major roof refurbishment at a cost of fifty thousand pounds as we had major leaks throughout the church roof, damaging some valuable items. So if you have enjoyed your look around  St Helen's Church we do ask if you would be so kind to make a donation to help cover this cost.

CHILE, TOP TO BOTTOM

 

Robin Shorrock will be giving a picture show with hotpot supper on Friday

 

15 March 2019 in the Sunday School, starting at 7.00 pm with hotpot.

 

Tickets are available now at £8.00 each and £5 for under 16's.

 

The show features Chile in South America and starts in Santiago the capital,

 

which is surrounded by the snow-capped mountains of the Andes. From

 

Santiago we travel north to the top of the country, visiting the Atacama desert,

 

one of the driest places on Earth, and at an altitude of 8,000 feet. We will also

 

visit the Tatio Geysers at 14,000 ft. We then fly South to the Chilean

 

Lake District, and then further south to the bottom of Chile, with a trip to

 

Torre del Paine National Park, having a sail on Lake Grey to see the

 

Grey Glacier, returning to Santiago, before flying east for 5 hours to

 

Easter Island to see the famous statues.

 

Please come along and support the show it should be a good night.

 

Any offers of fruit pies will be most welcome.

Helping our neighbour 

Homeless Project at Blackpool

 

The centre seems always a very busy place when we take your gifts, but they are always very grateful and really appreciate our efforts.

 

I would like us to continue to contribute; and was wondering as it will be soon Easter and just thought maybe it would be a nice gesture if we could give a number of Easter eggs or bars of chocolate for homeless people.

 

Agape is divine love a love we can share in, a love we can know In Christ Jesus.

 

The only Greek word for love that we don’t find in the new Testament is eros because that of course is romantic love, a source of blessing that is very special to us, to be used sparingly and carefully.

 

It is interesting to note of course that there is no Biblical word for love of inanimate objects or any kind material possession.

 

Perhaps we need to focus down on the contexts in which we use the word love, which is so precious that it is even one of the names of God (1 John), but where there is an appropriate context to use it much more than we do at present.
