News

Confirmations:

This year’s Confirmation service (18th June) is likely to be cancelled. A replacement service will be organised as soon as it is feasible to do so.


For now, we are seeking expressions of interest, so please email vicar@ainsworthparish.org.uk to register (NB. Children must be in Year 6 or above and attend Church regularly).


Before anyone can be Confirmed, they are required to complete a course of study. We normally prepare candidates via evening meetings (adults) or a study day in church (year 6 and above). Owing to the lockdown, it is not possible to do either of these things but, if there is enough interest, we can prepare adults and children (separately) via Zoom.


Porch Boxes: Currently it is not possible to receive donations for Porch Boxes in Church. However, if you shop at any of the following, they have somewhere to receive donations: ASDA (Radcliffe; Pilsworth & Bury); MORRISONS (Whitefield & Ramsbottom); TESCO (Bury & Ramsbottom)


You can still support Porch Boxes through a donation: A cheque made payable to “The Porch” can be sent to Michael Perrin, 14 Kenmore Avenue Bury BL8 2DY or a bank transfer made  to Account number 81643089 sort code 09-0155 account name The Porch, or via their website. 


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. 


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.
