… the World Day of Prayer service held at Macedonia in March this year? Remember the sunflower seeds given to us as part of that service to represent the hope we share in our lives and in our communities?

Well here’s a picture of how they are growing – and they haven’t flowered yet – though the flowers are forming.

The journey to the cross … and beyond

Easter Weekend Activities at Macedonia Church

Maundy Thursday  (Thur 14th April) 7:30pm  Supper and Story

The supper will be a ‘faith’ supper – just bring something for the supper that you like and we’ll all share the offerings together.  We will remember the story of Jesus’ last supper with his disciples, and, subject to the weather, will finish the story of the betrayal and arrest in the church garden.  So bring suitable warm (and waterproof) clothing.

Good Friday (Fri 15th April) 10:30am The Lighthouse does Good Friday

Join us at the Lighthouse for a cuppa and a hot cross bun as we continue the Easter story through his trial and execution.

Also on Good Friday 6:30pm Partnership Service

Macedonia is host for the service for the Oldham and Tameside Partnership.  A time of remembering and reflecting with our friends from Failsworth and from across the Partnership.  All are welcome, whether part of the Partnership, or not.

Easter Day (Sun 17th April) 10:30am Beyond the Cross

Join us for our Sunday worship, café-style as usual, when we will celebrate the climax of the Easter story.  Spoiler alert – the cross is not the end!

Film Time at t’Macey

Safe Harbour starts 7th March

Safe Harbour

Starting on 7th March, we will be opening on Wednesday mornings for a new venture called Safe Harbour.  Carrying on the theme of the Lighthouse which meets on Friday mornings, Safe Harbour offers a friendly, safe space with opportunities for people to come and either join in the activities, crafts, or games or simply watch others do so.  If you have something on your mind, a concern, or a worry, there will be members of the team around who are available to listen, or to pray if that would be helpful.

Come and see – you’ll be made very welcome!
