Dear Friends,

Park Praise has come around again and there are some changes this time. We are having Dave Bilbrough, international song writer and worship leader, as the main person to open Park Praise, and alongside this, he is going to do a concert on Friday Evening 24th June at the Ministry Centre, Christ Church, Aughton.

The Friday Night concert will replace the prayer meeting we normally have on the evening before Park Praise, so we want to make it a prayer time as well as a celebration. This will be a good opportunity for the churches to come together in this way.

We really need as many people as possible to support this event because it will also provide funds to cover Dave Bilbrough’s costs, so could you please keep your congregations informed and try to sell as many tickets as you can.

Thanking you,

God Bless

 

Jackie and the Park Praise Committee.

Liverpool Corporation Memorial

WATER workers from yesteryear who fought for their country are being remembered following the restoration of a First World War roll of honour.

Soldiers who worked for the old Liverpool Corporation are listed on the artefact which United Utilities had restored after years in storage at its treatment works in Bickerstaffe, it was found in 2012. Sadly now kept at Prescot Water Treatment Works.

Bickerstaffe Pensioners’ Fund

The Bickerstaffe Pensioners’ Fund have been awarded £1400 from the Skipton Building Society Charitable Foundation.

Edward McCarthy who, as a resident, helped the group with their application said:

“Bickerstaffe is a very spread out parish. The local transport links are very poor. In such a community people especially the elderly can be rurally isolated and suffer as a consequence of this. Local organisations such as the church, school, Mother’s Union and Women’s Institute are a real lifeline. Another Bickerstaffe organisation is the Bickerstaffe Pensioners Fund. This was set up in 1964.The fund has a two year cycle – one year a party and one year a trip. The continuation of the scheme is very important to the people of Bickerstaffe. It is great to hear that funding has been awarded from the Skipton Building Society. On behalf of the Bickerstaffe Pensioners’ Fund I would like to thank them.”
