Latest News

The wardens are very happy to announce that Rev Ben Wilkinson has accepted the position as our joint minister for Christ Church parish and the parish of St Mary’s, Balderstone.

Ben is currently serving as Assistant Curate in the parish of St Mary Deane and St Thomas & St John Lostock, Bolton.

We will advise start date etc., as we learn more through the appointment process.

Please pray for Ben and his family and pray for God’s guidance as they plan the next stage of their life and ministry across our three churches.

COVID 19 Update

Having considered the reduced infection rates and the excellent rollout of the vaccination programme meaning that the majority of those at risk within our church family have received at least their first vaccination, the PCC has decided that we are happy to re-start communal worship.

From Sunday 7th March we will be meeting at Christ Church only, at 11.00am each Sunday, but if we find that the number of people wishing and able to come is larger than expected we will recommence services at St Saviour’s as well.

We are still having to ensure that we can maintain social distancing, so the number of seats available is limited at the moment. We will be operating a ‘booking system’ which can be accessed online (please use the link: https://prayin.io/bie-txg-yzu to book your seat), by email to the office, or by telephoning Dave or Margaret and asking them to complete the booking on your behalf.

Please note that although people who are classed as ‘vulnerable’ for health or age reasons should consider the risks which may be attached to attending a service there is no prohibition on their doing so – it is entirely a personal decision.

In order to comply with the guidelines for safe opening the following will apply:

  • We must observe high levels of hygiene before, after and throughout the service - all attending are requested to use hand sanitiser (available at the door) or wash their hand for minimum of 20 seconds prior to entering the church
  • We have to take individuals’ details (name, contact telephone number, etc.) each time they attend and retain the information for 21 days after the service. In the case of infection these would have to be passed on to track and trace.
  • Due to the new local restrictions you are required to wear a face covering when attending church.
  • As far as practicable we will observe a one-way flow for movement inside church.
  • We will maintain the 2m social distancing between each household bubble.
  • There will be no Sunday School, all children will need to sit with their parents and stay with their parents the whole time they are inside the church (no running around) and parents must accompany them to the bathroom should they need to go and ensure that hygiene standards are maintained.
  • There will be no singing.
  • There will be no refreshments or chatting after the service.

And of course, anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19, has been asked to self-isolate having had contact with someone who has tested positive, or is feeling unwell, should not attend.

Help in the time of Coronavirus.

The Covid-19 pandemic has touched so many areas of our lives. We've found our lifestyles change in numerous ways and it might have thrown up lots of questions and emotions.
We’re putting together a series of short videos to help with some of these issues.
