The Revd Lameck Mutete and Churchwarden Georgina Blackhurst went to Bangor in Wales and rode what's claimed to be the fastest zip wire in the world recently.

undefined Church ‘flashmob’ choir at Wirral supermarket
St Mary’s church, Upton, Wirral, was invited back to their local supermarkets again during the pre-Christmas build up to surprise shoppers with its flashmob choir.

undefined Fond best wishes and thanks to Anne
Bishop Peter’s Executive Assistant Anne Simkiss has retired – with lots of good wishes from friends in our diocese.

On behalf of colleagues and friends she was presented with an orchid and a cheque.

undefined Helping flush away the effects of poverty
After finding out that 2.5 billion people don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo (that’s more than a third of the people on the planet) members of St Matthew's church, Edgeley, Stockport, decided to help. They did so by ‘twinning’ the toilet at their church with one in Liberia, Africa, and they have a certificate (PICTURED) to prove it.
