Christmas Cakes: Ian Taylor from the Methodist Church is taking orders for his Christmas Cakes – he will donate part of the profit to Church Building Fund, if you let him know when you order one.

He makes round ones (4” £7; 6” £9; 7” £12; 8” £16; and a 7” sponge £9); square ones (6” £11; 7” £14; 8” £18); and oblong ones (6” £9; 9” £12; large £15)
Church Flowers: we need a volunteer to take over arranging the Church flowers. Please contact the Vicar if you are interested in taking on this important role
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 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 as the process to remove non-compliant items begins on 25th April.
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.
Branch Contact - Jean Eddleston (0161 761 2147)
