Hello everyone!


Holy God,

holy and strong,

holy and immortal,

have mercy upon us,

and surround us with your love,

during this season of Lent. Amen.


I hope you, your families and friends are keeping well. We continue our journey through Lent accompanied, as we are, by our amazing God. My prayer, through this season, is that we all meet God in a new way – in our own lives, and as a church here at Christ Church.





Do look at the website, and encourage others to do so too. Malcolm continues to put this publication and services on every week. The web address is www.ccog.co.uk

Usually, on the first Friday of March, we join with other churches in the Ortons to celebrate the World Day of Prayer. This year, we will be doing this a little differently. We are not holding the service as such, but we will be having a short time of prayer using the prayers that have been created in preparation for this day. This will still happen on Friday 5th, at 11.00am on Zoom and the joining instructions are below.

Next Sunday, we have one service at 10.00am, which will be on Zoom and sent out in the usual way, after which we will also meet on Zoom for Coffee and a chat, also as usual.



I have recently come across a phone number, which is a free phone line of hymns, reflections and prayers. If you feel like hearing something to inspire, ring 0800 804 8044. And, remember it is free.


As ever, my prayers are with you all, as we keep each other, our country and our world in our thoughts and prayers. Do continue to keep in touch with each other, especially at this time. As we begin Lent, may you know God’s peace and his love. Keep well, everyone.

Yours in Christ.  Sarah
