Men’s Curry Night – Thursday 30th Sep

Time’s running out to book your place for a curry at Anaz, Darwen in the evening on Thursday 30th September. There’ll be a sign-up sheet at church this week, and we’ll be asking for a £5 deposit to secure the table. All men welcome!

Ladies Party Get Together – 7th October

The ‘Ladies Hub’ are getting together for a celebration at 7.30pm on Thursday 7th October. More details to follow.

St. Wilfred’s School Applications – Supplementary Forms (Faith reference)

Due to me taking annual leave, and the dates of half-term, it would be really helpful to have the supplementary forms (for those applying under faith criteria) by Sunday 10th October.

If that is going to be a struggle, please get in touch.

Luke in 6 minutes

Here’s an overview of Luke’s gospel which the Redeemer School watched this week.


They all joined together constantly in prayer.

Acts 1:14


The first Christians prayed constantly was they waited on God’s guidance and help. And God answered! We’ll see his miraculous response this week.

How can we grow in prayerfulness?

In Christ,
