St Chad’s Notices 8th May 2011


Photo Album The PCC wants to put together a photo album of the church family for the back of church, so people can look any time to see “Whoʼs who”.

Coming soon… Alpha LITE Alpha is a great opportunity to explore issues surrounding the Christian faith. Is it true and does it work? Alpha is relaxed, low-key, friendly and fun. It is open to everyone and anyone – atheist, agnostic, believer and seeker. All are welcome.

Please provide either a photograph of you or your family to Johanna Pearson, who works in the church office or to Gemma Nurcombe (10.45am). Also, if you have photos of people who are no longer with us, but who have been part of St Chadʼs, do provide those too. If it is an actual photo, pop your photo(s) in the box at the back of church. You can just provide one copy; we will make copies in the office.

Many find it difficult to commit to a whole series of evening meetings, especially during the summer months. So we are condensing the course th into a single day - Saturday 11 June – 9.30 till 4.30 at Romiley Lifecentre. Lunch is provided and there is no charge.

If you have a digital image (which is even better!), then please email it to Johanna at:

Phone 0161 430 4652 to book your place or send a registration form to the Church Office, Romiley Lifecentre, 3 Stockport Road, Romiley, Stockport, SK6 4BN.

By when: You can do this as soon possible – and that will really help! The deadline will be the end of May. It will really help us if we have them in good and early. PLEASE!

We are running ʻPitstopʼ again!

Starts tonight! Transformed by His love

There is another opportunity to invest in your relationship – this time on the four Sundays in July. We are going to start each session with a simple lunch at 1pm and plan to finish at 3pm. We have chosen this time in the hope that those with young children will find it easier to make care arrangements. There will be no fee for the course, just the opportunity to make a contribution towards the cost of lunch! Read the brochure for more information and return the registration form th by 25 June.

May 8, 15, 22, 29 A new 4-part evening series in which Tim will share how Jesus wants to transform our lives so we will join him in transforming the world.

Dates – 3, 10, 17 & 24 July Times – 13.00 – 15.00 Venue – Romiley Lifecentre

Join us in Guywood on Sunday evenings at 6.30pm to discover more of how we can be a part of this revolution of love.
