undefined Runcorn’s faith comes ALIVE!
Every Sunday evening for a month 14 churches in Runcorn gathered together to proclaim with confidence their shared faith in Christ. Around 250 people met in the conference centre of the town’s Heath Business Park for each of five big events. Everyone enjoyed a buffet meal together before listening to inspiring stories of Christian faith.
undefined The Christian car dealer who doesn’t open on Sundays
Local radio station Flame is to interview one of the north-west's most successful car dealers – one who refuses to trade on Sundays. Mark Mitchell – managing director of Mitchell Group based at Cheshire Oaks near Ellesmere Port – operates the business along Biblical principles.
undefined Taking a stand against human trafficking
More than 100 people from most Christian denominations gathered for a Forum on Human Trafficking meeting held at Frodsham Methodist Church. They discussed human trafficking in the UK and internationally and what can be done to combat it.
undefined Making friends in Tanzania
St Michael’s church, Bramhall, is enjoying its link with fellow Christians in Tanzania. The parish has been making modest financial contributions to Anglians in Newala, Tanzania, since starting up a mission partnership back in 2009. Bramhall parishioners are helping the relatively new Diocese of Newala, which was carved out of the huge Diocese of Masasi a few years ago.

Stuart Townend is the son of a vicar in Halifax, West Yorkshire. His songs include ‘In Christ Alone’ (co-written with Keith Getty) and ‘How Deep The Father's Love For Us’.
undefined ‘Cathedral at Height’
This new visitor attraction at Chester Cathedral is due to open on Saturday 5 April. It’s a guided tour behind the scenes and up inside the tower to the top. Some 900 years of history becomes evident as the tour takes in previously inaccessible parts of the cathedral.
undefined Welcome to your colour CDN!
Reaching parishes this week will be the April's Chester Diocesan News. It’s the first issue to have full colour pages as a permanent feature. In it you can read a poignant farewell to our diocese from Bishop Robert, who in summer will become the new Bishop of Exeter. His article also contains a profound spiritual reflection.
undefined Runcorn’s lively faith events!
‘Runcorn Life’ mission events have been taking place each Sunday this March in the conference centre of the Heath Business Park. Bishop Keith opened the series of transformational life stories with a talk about suffering in the world and why that DOESN'T disprove the Christian faith.
undefined A lesson for us all from an ex-prisoner of war
A book that looks at forgiveness through examples of real-life experiences features a retired priest from our diocese. ‘Against the Odds: true stories of forgiveness and healing’ by Carmel Thomason (pictured) has a chapter looking at the experiences of the Revd Ray Rossiter, who was one of the soldiers to survive the building of the Burma railway.

Blacon Crematorium was the place where family, friends and members of St. Mark’s Church, Lache-cum-Saltney, Chester, gathered back in February to pay their respects and give thanks for the life of Billy Williams, organist at St Mark’s.
undefined Sponsored abseil at church in Northwich

undefined Talk from our very own community of nuns
The guests at ‘Sundays at 7’ in Upton, Wirral, next month will be members of the Sisters of Jesus Way (pictured). Several of the sisters will speak and answer questions at St Mary’s church in Church Road, Upton (CH49 6JZ).
