    200 years of supporting the Diocese of Chester’s churches
    2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the Incorporated Church Building Society, set up in 1818, which helped to build and enlarge many hundreds of Anglican churches.

    Please pray for: Royal Cheshire Show

    The Royal Cheshire Show takes place at Tabley on 19 and 20 June. The Show will be a special one this year, as the Cheshire Agricultural Society, which runs the Show, is celebrating its 180th anniversary. The Show is a major celebration of life across Cheshire, featuring not only agricultural exhibitions but also crafts, flower arranging, dogs and many, many horses of all shapes and sizes. Upwards of 80,000 visitors will attend the Show. The Church has an important and highly regarded place within the life of the Show. It opens with a Service which will take place at 7.30 pm on Monday 18 June this year. Around 300 people attend this, and all are welcome. Andrew Taylor, the County Ecumenical Officer is the preacher. On Show Days, “The Church at the Show” is staffed by a team of more than 30 volunteers who welcome visitors with refreshments, and church groups and organisations display all that is good about the Church in Cheshire. Without the generous support of the Agricultural Society this would not be possible. Pray for visitors to the Church marquee, stewards, exhibitors and myself as Chaplain, not only during the Show but in the days before as the marquee is prepared. Anne Lawson, Chaplain, Cheshire Agricultural Society.
