A new study book, written by our former diocesan bishop, the Rt Revd Michael Baughen, helps people delve into the Christ-centred letter to the Hebrews ... with a particular view to the season of Advent. ‘Cover to Cover Advent: My Beloved Son’ (PICTURED) aims to help small groups and individuals explore the many facets of our Saviour’s character.
undefined A booklet on loneliness

undefined A permanent poppy on display at cathedral
One of the ceramic poppies that was part of the memorable exhibition that filled the Tower of London moat last year, has gone on permanent display in Chester Cathedral in time for Remembrance Day. ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ was an artwork comprising 888,246 hand-made poppies at the Tower - each representing a fallen soldier from the First World War.
undefined Get your ‘Real Advent Calendar’
This uses Fairtrade chocolate and informs youngsters about the nativity and the hope which that brings for humankind.

undefined Stockport’s help for young women in Ethiopia
Clergy and churches from across Stockport are uniting to support the work of Christian Aid in Ethiopia.

undefined A simple way of giving – to children who need kindness
Christian responses to humanitarian relief are in sharp focus at the moment … mainly because of the refugee crisis in Europe.
