Stewardship Campaign 2017


Thank you all for your responses so far to this years Stewardship Campaign.

Stewardship is all about how we take care of our church and the things we do as a church. We hope you’ve had time to reflect on this, including the importance of all the things we do (or don’t do) and the part we play in those things as well as the upkeep of the church.

If we are to be as successful as we can be we all need to reflect on our commitment and return our forms.  The deadline for returns is Sunday 19th November so if you haven’t done so, now is the time to give it some thought.

Together we can achieve great things.

Jan and Lilian work their magic

A huge “thank you” to Jan and Lilian who worked their magic pruning and clearing the flower beds and collecting 5 bags of rubbish from the yard at Yesterdays Clear-up session.  This after the yard was full if butterflies.

Thanks to help like this the yard is looking better than it has for a long time.

Work continues throughout the autumn / winter so if you’d like to help just drop us a line on st.jamesmilnrow@outlook.com


Churchyard Clear Up

On Saturday 23rd September we held our latest Churchyard Clear-up Session. A massive “thank you” to Jan, Lilian, Andy, Scott, Johnny, Trevor and Walter who completed another 4 hours hard slog mowing, pruning, planting, generally clearing up and yes … painting railings.

Our plan is to continue through the autumn and winter so our churchyard will look better than it’s done for years.

Stewardship Campaign 2017

We cannot always do everything in our own strength but by prayer and seeking God’s guidance he will strengthen us in our weakness.

Our Mission is to reach out to the community through events and activities, but developing these schemes is not something we can achieve without your help.  We want to ask you to prayerfully consider how you can help by offering financial support, time, or resources. WE need your help to survive and grow. We are asking you to give new vision, thought and prayer with regard to your contribution to the life and activity of St James, Milnrow.

You are all invited to join us on Sunday 1st October 2017 at 9am in church when we welcome James Emmerson, Diocesan Stewardship Officer who will help us reflect on how much we value belonging to our church.
