Communications and the new website

It is, for some of us at least, very exciting as we have a parish website again after many years without. You can find us at If you spot any errors, then do let Andrew know You will notice that we are beginning to have email addresses that have our job role rather than our name. It will take a while to get used to that. We also need photos of some of you, so if you are asked to allow your picture to be taken it would be helpful if you say yes! Visit our site. The rota, newsletter and a calendar are all there. Encourage your friends and family to visit too as we want to have good visibility on Google. We also have a number of TikToks that you can watch through the app or via Facebook. 

Help raise cash for St Barnabas as you do your Christmas Shopping! 

Will you be buying Christmas presents online this year? If so you may well be able to raise some money for St Barnabas at the same time! How? Like this: Go to the ‘Give As You Live’ website

and click on ‘log in’ or ‘register’ to create an account. Search for St Barnabas as your charity: type in ‘Barnabas’ and ‘PCC of St Barnabas, Bromborough’ will pop up for you to select. You can shop at Sainsbury’s, Tesco, John Lewis, Argos, Boots, Waitrose, the Trainline, even Screwfix! All you have to do is choose the shop from the ‘Give As You Live’ website. It takes you to the chosen shop but remembers to give the chosen charity a portion of the total you spend. A small portion admittedly, but it all adds up.

Please have go. If you get stuck, talk to Julie Watts or email Thank you.
