OPEN DOORS’ SERVICES
This is a new and exciting venture at St Mary & St Helen for young families and those exploring their faith in a relaxed and informal setting….just push open the door! We encourage young families with children to come to the 4pm gathering with refreshments. Do you have lots of questions? Then join us at 5.30pm for a café style of church, again informal. Is God calling you to push open the door?

Cascading poppies inside Neston Parish Church

On Saturday morning 4th Novmber, seven of the flower arrangers at Neston Parish Church made thirty two garlands of poppies to create a unique display for Remembrance Day 2017.
The design consists of approximately three hundred and fifty Royal British Legion poppies and was inspired by the falling poppy petals which are released from the roof of the Royal Albert Hall at the end of the Festival of Remembrance.
The cascading poppies will remain in place until Saturday 2nd December.

Volunteers Please for Churchyard Maintenance

You may have noticed the graveyard grass has now been cut. We are now on a 6 to 8 week rota.
As a closed graveyard (no more burials) the maintenance of the graveyard comes under the Cheshire West and Chester Authority.
Why every 6 to 8 weeks? The maintenance crew, a two man team, are based at Winsford and have a radius of 20 miles. I can’t think how many churchyards that covers, but that is fact. Understandably, the crew only cut the grass and move on, and that is why I am appealing for volunteers.
I need a group of willing souls to rake up the grass cuttings and generally clean around the churchyard and The Neston Centre on a near regular basis.
I am looking at a choice of two days a week -

Monday mornings (when general maintenance of the church takes place) or any time you may have.
If any ladies or gents can spare an hour or so I would be most grateful.

Please contact me, Terry Abel  Church Warden 336 4492 or 07754833515
