Autumn Sermon Series

Sermon Series – The Psalms
This term, across all our service we are focusing our preaching and worship on the Psalms as a way of helping us go DEEPER with God in personal faith and daily living. We’re using a range of Psalms that connect
with highs, lows, joys and challenges of life seeking to worship the Lord, see him, trust him and serve him whatever we may be facing.

It was announced this week that Lyn Weston will be leaving the Chester Diocesan staff in September to take up a national position with the London Institute of Contemporary Christianity (LICC) as Director of Church of England Relations.
Please pray for Lyn as she joins LICC working with Dioceses across the country on whole life discipleship. She will work from her home base in Heswall, so she will also be able to continue her ministry in the Parish.

Prayer Post Box

We believe in the power of prayer and thanksgiving. In St Peter’s
Centre and the Church of the Good Shepherd Church, we have placed
prayer boxes and prayer/praise cards. Prayer request cards allow you
to fill out your requests anonymously or share with others to pray together. Praise report cards allows you an opportunity to thank God for answered prayers, His provision, His faithfulness or share a testimony
of His unfailing love.

YF mission journey has begun

… the team has left Heswall for Uganda…. Please pray for them

During their trip to Uganda you can keep in touch with their blog posts here. They left on July 12th, 2019 for three weeks. There are three teams of 12 people including leaders and there is also a medical team who will be running rural clinics with our Ugandan friends.

The teams will each spend one week at each school. They will learn about Ugandan traditions, way of life and culture. They will deliver lessons and play with children, visit them in their homes and provide mattresses etc to needy people.

They will continue previous projects such as putting up mosquito nets to stop malaria. Teaching about dental care and teaching girls how to make re-useable sanitary pads as without them they exclude themselves from school.

Now projects include recycling waste, composting of biodegradable material, recycling charcoal dust by making brickets, recycling plastics and reducing their use and how to make a solar cooker out of cardboard and tin foil.

LJMU Good Citizenship Award

Congratulations to Annabel, Bethan, Emma and Isabelle who were presented with LJMU Good Citizenship Award by comedian John Bishop at St George’s Hall this evening for their fundraising efforts in support of the Rock of Joy Trust. The award recognises the often-overlooked contributions that young people make to society today. West Kirby Grammar School nominated the four girls after they raised £1,300 each to fund their trip to Uganda in 2017 by running cake sales and raffles in school. Their teachers were particularly impressed that when they returned, the girls were so keen to share their experiences with the rest of the school that they offered to lead assemblies for all year groups and talked enthusiastically about the dental hygiene, malaria prevention and menstrual health projects. They also continued to campaign for better Ugandan toilet facilities by selling badges in school (they even managed to sell one to John Bishop tonight!) This resulted in ROJ being nominated as one of the school’s chosen charities last year and led to a donation of £2050 from West Kirby Grammar School (WKGS) at the end of the summer term. Thank you to Mrs. Noble and Mrs. Marley for nominating the girls for this very special award and to Mrs Sargeant and all the staff and students at WKGS for supporting them in their fantastic fundraising efforts. We’d also like to thank the girls for being such wonderful ambassadors for the ROJ Trust and for all the fundraising you have undertaken on our behalf. We are really proud of you and this award is very much deserved.
