Visit to


A group of ladies from St Paul’s visited the Mustard Tree charity’s headquarters in Ancoats. Although St Paul’s has supported the charity for many years we are looking at ways to increase this support. The slideshow below shows the St Paul’s group with Mark and his artwork together with some photos of the headquarters.

Men’s Society Bowls Match

In the middle of a heatwave, 25 members and friends met at the Linden Club in Sale for the annual bowls night on June 28th. The rock-hard green challenged all but the good players and the final was contested by Brian Kerridge and John Barlow. The winner was Brian who re-claimed the cup he last won in 2014. The splendid refreshments were provided by the Shakeshaft family but with so many ends to fit in these were not started until 9:45pm. The final was then played after this in the dying light.

The slideshow below shows photos taken during the evening.

Prayer Walk

Last Friday (18th May) a large number of walkers of all ages joined Bishop Libby and Archdeacon Ian for the last leg of their ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer walks, in Bowdon Deanery.  The 7.5 mile route took us from Warburton, via Partington, Carrington and Ashton-on-Mersey.  Representatives from many of our churches across the deanery, joined us and each and every church was prayed for on route.  This was a very ecumenical event too with colleagues from the local Methodist, Baptist, Catholic and Ivy Church Plant walking and praying with us.  On route we visited a wide variety of places including, schools, care homes, churches of several denominations, urban estates, a Christian play centre and busy roads – praying for individuals, families, children, workers and visitors in many walks of life.
