"They're off!! -- The Church holiday group set off this morning on
their annual jaunt, their base this year being Llandudno, with trips to
Anglesey, Llangollen, Mold, Portmeirion and Porthmadog also included in
their week-long itinerary.
Doubtless there will
also be plenty of opportunities for retail therapy throughout the week,
as well as the usual relaxed banter on the coach.
labelled "Saga Tours" in some quarters, there were no zimmers in sight,
and only a few walking aids as they boarded their coach at the church.
Rumours that Bob Craig and Ian Maxwell had been allocated seats in the
boot on account of their behaviour on previous trips have been strongly
denied by the Treasurer/organiser, May Shaw -- but further evidence to
the contrary is awaited.................
We wish them well, and hope that the sun shines on them throughout their holiday.
PRESS. It has just been reported that after 3 hours they have now
left Haughton Hall Garden Centre in Carlisle (journey time 1
hour/shopping time 2 hours)!"

Talent...The special ability of a person or
group to do something well
The members of the congregation will be invited to think
about what they are good at or enjoy doing and how they could use this talent to
help the congregation and the church. The answer may be different for each of
us, but the answer should not be ‘nothing’ for we all have our strengths and
It maybe that your skills and abilities are a bit of a
mystery even to you, because you don’t really see them as special but the
headings below will allow you to relate to what you are good at.
Food, People Person,
Practical skills, Music/song,
The suggestions are not complete so think about your own
strengths and hopefully you will be able to see general areas where you would
be able to help.
This is an invitation to contribute to the continuing work
of the church with whatever gifts, skills or abilities you may have. Please
think about what you are able to offer. Don’t be modest .

note there are changes to the Sunday service times of both churches and these
will take effect from Sunday
12th April 2015 as follows:
St. Andrew's Church 10:00 am,
Livingstone Memorial Church 11:30 am
will note that our service time is earlier than our existing start time and we
hope this will not present any significant inconvenience. However, should this earlier time
present difficulty then you will be made most welcome at Livingstone Memorial
at the later time of 11:30am. The same courtesy will be extended by
us to members of Livingstone Memorial, who may find the later start time
