Half-term food vouchers

Message on behalf of Alison Stathers-Tracey, Director of Prevention & Early Help: Cheshire East Council

“Cheshire East Council will be offering supermarket e-vouchers over half term for families with children who are eligible for free school meals. If you are working with any families that need this support, please contact cfphp@cheshireeast.gov.uk with the following information:

  • Name of the parent/ carer
  • Name of the child/ children
  • Name of the school
  • Date of birth of each child
  • Home address
  • Contact number and ideally an email address to receive the e-voucher

Families can also contact this email address direct cfphp@cheshireeast.gov.uk

If the family does not have an email address the Council can discuss the best way to get the voucher to them.

The Council is committed to helping our most vulnerable children and families and hope that this will help those that are struggling financially over half term.”

Children’s Choir

 

Starting Wednesday 7 March 2018

For young children of school age, in St Oswald’s Church during term time. Drinks and biscuits will be provided!

Led by one of the mums, the intention is to encourage young children to sing and to make occasional performances at Family Services. To help them grow in confidence, and to draw them closer into the Church family.

This is NOT a talent show, all you require is enthusiasm and a love of singing. If you have children or grandchildren who might like to join in with this new venture, please bring them along.

 

 

A Springtime Prayer…

… written by a young member of our congregation

Tyler before the Pet Blessing Service summer 2017

I love the nature as much as you do, God. The river flows as Jesus goes. God, please protect nature. All the poor and all the endangered animals, protect them. God, I wish that one day I will see you. I wish that all the bad people become good and all the litter is cleared one day. Dear God, all the poor – give them more – as you can.

Amen.

Tyler (a Year One pupil at St John’s School)

Epiphany party 2018

Each year we hold a party in church for Praise & Play Children and all our younger church members including the families of children recently baptised.

There was food and drink, various games, and a surprise visit from Three Wise Men who came bearing gifts for the children.

A good time was had by all!
