Cleaning Bee, Saturday 27th March

Christmas 2020

At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, a person who has had a profound influence on human history. As Christians, we believe that it is God himself who comes near to us in this person. We also believe that in Jesus there is something for everyone – and that was this year’s theme, ‘There is something for everyone’. Watch our two recorded services below.

Ashworth Farewell, Sunday 20th December 2020

To celebrate the wonderful ministry that Glen has provided at St Aidan’s and farewell all the Ashworths we held a shared lunch on Sunday 20th December after the 9:30am service. Whilst it was not their last service in the parish it made sense to do this prior to Christmas and when many people go on holiday.
