Thank you

I would personally like to thank everyone who took part in the phenomenal amount of work that took place between the middle of November and Christmas day. I realise that for some this was added to the jobs that you already do for church, community, Village Hall and Centre. For some of the rest of you, thank you for volunteering in your very first Christmas with us. Whatever you did, however great or small it was important, and it was appreciated. This includes those of you who were not able to be out and about but who were praying for all the activities. Prayerful ministry is the engine room that makes everything else happen. We always need more who will pray. 

Funerals coming up 

There are several funerals coming up and they will be put in the What’s On section of the news sheet. Among them, you may wish to note that Barbara Baxter’s husband John’s service is on Friday 19th January at 12 noon. All are welcome. 

Andrew and I would also like to invite you to our dad’s, Jack’s, funeral. The funeral will take place on Friday 26th January at 1.30pm in St Barnabas and then at Landican South Chapel.
Afterwards we are going to the Bromborough pub for food. You are all invited to join us at any or all of it. We aren’t in the centre because wanted Church family to enjoy the event and the food, and not to rush around making and clearing up (though we know you would have done it willingly.) 

Christmas Tree Festival 

Natalie Friel writes: A huge thank you to all of the volunteers that made the 2023 festival set up, take down and opening a success. I couldn’t do it without you! We now have a much better organised ‘Christmas Tree Festival Shed’ (formerly donkey shed!) Unfortunately, I am short by around 10 of the large plastic storage tubs. Does anyone have any spare or would like to donate one? Please contact me on 07950598466 or if you can support. Many thanks, Natalie. 

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 Shopping! 

Are you someone who shops online? 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. 

For our prayers 

We pray for all those who are experiencing the ‘January blues.’ May they seek and find comfort in you. Please pray with thanksgiving that Jan is back amongst us and Gordon made it home for Christmas. Please continue to pray for an improvement in his health. We pray with thanksgiving that Leslie is getting better and her diagnosis is not as awful as it first seemed. Pray for her continued healing and a growth in strength and for the well-being of Clive as he cares for her.

We pray for our family at home: Thelma Wiliams, Josie Davies, Maureen Coleman and Pat Porter.

We pray for the families and friends of the Lt. Jane Hunt, Lt. Patricia Liddiard, Lt. John Baxter, Lt. Jack Watts, Lt. George Bufton and the Lt. William Wilson. (For those who still wonder, Lt is an abbreviation of the word Late and in this context denotes that the person has died.)

Please send notices for inclusion in the Newsletter please to by Wednesday at 4.30pm.The Rector Jenny can be contacted at or via her mobile 07806608219. Monday is usually her rest day.
