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.

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.
