We were pleased to welcome the Right Rev. John Hayden, retired Bishop of Kilimanjaro, to our Harvest Thanksgiving today. He spoke of God's blessings to us all and showed slides of some of the people he had worked with in Tanzania.

Our church was beautifully decorated with flowers and displays of food that were collected for St Paul's Pantry in Crewe, a local foodbank.

After the service, also taken by the Rev Anne, there was a lunch of soup, sandwiches and cream scones. Our thanks go to all who helped in so many different ways.

A very big THANK YOU to all members of our Community for your generous gifts of dried and tinned foods. These will be taken to St Paul's Pantry in Crewe Monday morning

Since I've lived here I've hunted for them diligently but with no...

It has felt like the longest summer ever already as I listen to the noise of the rain on our roof. The grass is still a dry shade of crunchy brown from the unbelievable Mediterranean weather conditions we have been having in this little corner of England. It is the hottest summer I can remember since I was a child, collecting water from stand pipes in the streets of Cardiff. Who could have...
