The Chester Diocesan Environment Forum have gathered together 40 reflections from individuals around the Diocese who are trying in small ways to be the difference in response to the needs of our environment. A new reflection will be posted on the Chester Diocesan website and social media each day during Lent. Along with these reflections, there will be 7 challenges, each intended to make us think, pray and act – taking something up rather than giving something up! For details go to the Diocesan website:

Donate Online

Our church’s ministry and mission has never been more needed: meeting online or in church for prayer, services and fellowship, loving our neighbours by offering practical support to the vulnerable, and caring for our communities. The work of our church is reliant on people’s generosity, and we are so grateful for all the gifts we receive. This generosity is a hallmark of a lived-out faith and a testament to it. 

If you are able to give to us now, you can help by donating online (with Gift Aid if applicable) by following the link ‘button’ below. Please note that our donations software only allows custom amounts to be entered.

Should you have any issues with the online donations process, please email us at
