UPDATE – As we are now in lockdown for four weeks from 5 November to 2 December, all our in-chapel services will be suspended.
On Remembrance Sunday 8th November, we will have an online Zoom Service at 10.45 a.m, and observe the two minute silence at 11.00

Please mute your microphones during the service to prevent background noises impinging on the service.
I will also put worship videos on this website.
TOYS FOR ASH GROVE
We are hoping to return to chapel on Sunday 6th December for our Toy Service, but the lockdown may be extended beyond then. As we did last year, we are collecting toys for the Ash Grove Children’s Centre in Macclesfield and we want to make sure we can still do so, even if the lockdown continues in December. EITHER please drop them off at Alex’s home OR contact Alex (01565 754 465) and arrange for a time to us to collect them from your doorstep (to keep to social distancing). Please leave the toys on your doorstep in a carrier bag. Ash Grove have said that they will happily accept EITHER toys that are new OR in ‘as good as new’ condition, having been thoroughly cleaned before being donated.
Our Tuesday Zoom Gatherings will continue at 7.00.
Our Secretary, Rev Jean, received a lovely letter of thanks from Mr Ian Robertson at Hope Central, the food bank charity helping local families in need in Knutsford and surrounding areas for the food donations from our Harvest Festival service. Our gifts enabled the Welcome to give parcels to 63 families with children over the half-term holiday. This is a great result and a practical demonstration of our Christian faith in action: thank you so much to all who contributed to this splendid outcome. HOWEVER, the letter mentioned that Christmas looks to be difficult for many families this year. Although we cannot physically meet in our chapel, we can give donations on an individual basis to this local charity through collection boxes in local supermarkets. It would be a great way to continue our support for this vital work.
