Shining a Light on Halloween

Giving

Your giving matters more than ever.

The present Coronavirus pandemic is having a serious effect on the financial position and vision at St Thomas’s and St Luke’s.  Our church is dependent on the your  generosity never more  so than now. We are doing everything we can to offer help to those who need it through our through our support of the asylum seekers and the  ACT Foodbank and at the same time continuing to provide all of the  functions of an active parish church.

As a part of the Deanery of Church Wigan, we have a commitment to meet our portion of the parish share as well as meeting the regular expenses of a large parish. In addition to one off donations  we do need to take the opportunity to renew our giving.  Each of us can ask the Lord how we can give financially as part of St Thomas’s and St Luke’s.  This may be the opportunity to begin a regular pattern of giving,  or to review and increase the amount we can contribute to the life and work of our church. We need your support so that we can  continue with our work here in the community of Ashton in Makerfield.

Everything we do at St Thomas and St Luke is made possible by your giving, Thank You.

Fairtrade stall

Our next Fairtrade stall will take place in the church hall after the 10.45 service on Sunday 15th March. You can make a real difference to people’s lives by buying some food or gifts. Please try and support this worthwhile cause even if you only purchase one item. If you buy any fair trade goods from our stall, rather from the supermarkets, then you are helping to support Traidcraft who reinvest their profits into the communities of their producers. You can find out more about our support of Fairtrade on our web page.

Christmas Praise

You are warmly welcome at St Thomas this Saturday (21st December) to join us for Christmas Praise together with friends from Beacon, Bryn Baptists and Hope Church. All details are on the poster.
