Dear Everyone in Bolton-le-Sands and Nether Kellet,
We are now in a period without a vicar as Rev. Nancy and her family have moved on, following God’s word, to new pastures. Under her guidance the parish has grown and developed. She has been a marvellous pastor for us and we wish her and the family well. She will be licensed in Bollington on 26th July. Please remeber her and all the family in your prayers
In Bolton le Sands and Nether Kellet God is constantly at work to bring goodness and new life, particularly where there is fear. “Do not be afraid, for I am with you” the risen Jesus tells us anew, again and again. Closed doors are no barrier to Jesus. The doors of Holy Trinity are open again, for private prayer daily from 10.00am till 4.00pm. and for services of Holy Communion on most Sundays. There will also be a service on Wednesday at 10.00am. Doors will not open before 10am and you will be shown to a seat. You will be required to wear a mask. Hand sanitizer will be provided. Your contact details will be required for Test and Trace. Other directions will be explained in the service. If you have symptoms of Covid-19 you should stay at home and contact the NHS.
We are continuing with our joyful Zoom church every Sunday at 10.30am and every Wednesday at 10am. You will need the Zoom invite which will be emailed to you if you register by clicking
We can help you over the phone to get on. Every week there are new people who try it out and have a go.
In our communities, people are finding new ways of connecting with each other and looking out for the vulnerable. Bolton-le-Sands has a Neighbourhood Watch scheme with a coordinator for every street. Nether Kellet has a Volunteer Support Group who have put cards through the door of every house. There are people who will keep an eye on you, do shopping and help. Please don’t struggle alone.
God is always open through prayer wherever you are.
Jesus is alongside us; whatever path life takes.
With love and prayers,
Mary Bunting and Peter John Davies
