Ainsworth Community Coffee and Conversation is our new venture to support the older folk of the area, especially those who might be in need of some company. It runs on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 10.30am to 12 noon, at Ainsworth Church & Community Hall. There is a bookstall (profits to Bury Hospice). There is a nominal charge (£1) for coffee / tea & biscuits.
'A cup of coffee shared with others is happiness tasted and time well spent.'
Rucksack Project: Homeless Charity Emmaus are seeking donations of clothes, non-perishable foods and toiletries, which they will distribute to those in need during December and January. Especially required are hats, gloves, socks, new underwear, coats, sleeping bags and flasks. All donations to Revd Dave, who will pass them on.
St Patrick’s Day Hot Pot Supper - Social Evening and Quiz on Saturday 17th March in the Church Hall. Doors open at 7:00pm and the quiz starts at 7:30pm. Tickets cost £5 and include a hot pot supper (bring your own drinks). Come along for an enjoyable evening – you don’t have to be good at quizzes as the aim is to have a good time (and we won't embarrass you by displaying your score!) There will be prizes for the winning team – nothing too exotic though!!
Maximum size of a team is 5 – so if there are more than this in your group, simply form two or more teams. If you haven’t got a team, don’t worry, there will be others in the same position and we will make sure you are not alone! Tickets are available from the back of church, at the vicarage or from Jan (0161 761 1958)
Churchyard: a summary of the rules governing the items that may be placed on graves within our churchyard can be found here. A glance around the churchyard suggests that some people tending graves are unfamiliar with these rules. Please be aware that the Church has a legal duty to remove non-compliant items from graves; and will do so. But, obviously, it is far better if people remove such items themselves. So, if this applies to you, please can you do this as soon as possible.
Ainsworth Parish Church Mothers Union: Meet every 1st and 3rd Tuesday in the Ainsworth Church and Community Hall. Meetings commence at 7.30pm. Everyone welcome.
