September is a busy month in the Parish of Prescot. On Saturday 4 September we were delighted at long last to be able to give the Reverend John Taylor a proper farewell party, as his retirement earlier this year unfortunately coincided with Covid lockdown. The following day, he joined us for our Patronal Festival, as we celebrated the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the baptism of Benjamin Alan Howard.
On Wednesday 8 September we will resume our midweek Eucharist at 10am in St Mary’s. This is a spoken service of Holy Communion, shorter than our Sunday service, and all are welcome.
On Saturdays-Sundays 11-12 and 18-19 September we open Prescot Parish Church to visitors for Heritage Open Days. This is a chance to see and learn about our historic Jacobean place of worship, which dates to 1610 and is now Knowsley’s only Grade I listed building. Find more information here.
On Sunday 12 September Faith Kids resumes in the Meeting Room at 10am. This is a chance for children aged 3 to 11 to have fun learning about the Christian faith and what it means to follow Jesus. All ages are, of course, welcome in the main Eucharist, too!
On Sunday 19 September we are pleased to welcome as our guest preacher the Revd Dr Stephen Cherry, from our patron of King’s College, Cambridge.
On Wednesday 22 September Mothers’ Union resumes with a service in church, followed by refreshments in the Meeting Room. It starts at 7.30pm.
On Thursday 23 September the Reverend Kimberley Mannings will be officially installed as the Vicar of Prescot. We welcome the Rt Revd Paul Bayes, Bishop of Liverpool, to this service, beginning at 7.00pm. All are welcome to attend.
