TO KNOW GOD AND TO MAKE GOD KNOWN
PRAYER WALL: Remember you can write a prayer and light a virtual candle on our website. https://slfchurch.org/prayerwall. Pass your requests to Rev Elaine at the Vicarage if you haven’t got internet access.
Please let me know if there’s anything you feel I should know about - thank you.
Please note that during August our services on CD and online will be “Summer Season” services compiled by Andrew from all the recordings made over the last eighteen months and will not be the same as our services in church. These CD’s will be delivered at the beginning of August rather than weekly. The current website link for services is: https://slfchurch.org/trinity9-on
Services in church:
You no longer need to book to come to a service, but we still encourage you to wear a face mask to come in and walk about church, and if you feel comfortable to do so, take it off when sitting down.
Over the last 16 months we have been producing a weekly newsletter and are very grateful to all concerned for contributions, editing, delivering and so on which has helped us feel connected. As we move forward into what we hope and pray will be more normality - outlined below is what will be happening with our Newsletter in future:
• Last Sunday of each month will be in this format – a kind of “Bumper Pack” which includes our monthlycycle of prayers
• The weeks in between will be a simple calendar of events / prayer requests
The Newsletter will also be available either:
• By email
• On our website and Facebook page
• To pick up at the back of church
• Delivered to those who can’t get to church
Therefore, there will no longer be a Parish Magazine. Reducing our consumption of paper helps us become more “eco-friendly”.
Some future dates for your diary and information:
Sunday August 15th: we will be celebrating the feast day of St Laurence. Please bring a picnic lunch if you would like to stay and socialise. Hopefully the weather will be good, and we can spread outside 😊
Sunday August 29th: Sunday morning services as usual. Frodsham Festival in the Park.
Sunday October 3rd 10am: Rev Elaine’s Induction (having been Instituted to the Parish by Bishop Keith via Zoom over a year ago - before we moved to Frodsham!)
Sunday October 10th 10am: Harvest service.
Sunday October 17th 10am: Admission to Holy Communion for children from Year 4 at Frodsham C of E School.
Frodsham wombles Aka “the Frombles” have now included the church car park on their weekly litter pick of Churchfields park. They have noticed the weeds and vegetation growing in the car park along the front wall, and the vegetation that needs cutting back on the footpath down the west side (sandstone trail). They are asking whether anybody would be prepared to get together with them and organise a couple of Saturday mornings or weekday evening clearing sessions of these areas. If you would like to participate, please let Rev Elaine know and then, with your permission, your contact details can be passed on to Steve Bowle.

We are a warm, welcoming and inclusive Church of England congregation in the small market town of Frodsham. We belong to Inclusive Church and welcome all people to our services. Normally, our church is open in daylight hours on most days but currently it is more limited - please see the notice above. You are most welcome to visit
We have a Church School which you can link to here.
At the moment, whilst we are emerging from lockdown, we are holding two communion services each week
Sunday 8am - said
Sunday 10am - with music
We would encourage you all still to wear masks whilst moving about inside church and only take them off when seated. Thank you.
If you wish to make a donation to St Laurence Church you can do so here.
The work of our church is reliant on people’s generosity, a generosity that is a hallmark of a lived-out faith and a testament to it. We give to our church in a variety of ways but, in the current circumstances, we cannot receive all the gifts that we usually would, so we really need your help now.
Each year we support a different charity and fundraise for them. Sometimes it is an overseas charity and sometimes it is a local or national charity.
This year we are supporting the local charity Stick 'n' Step.
At St Laurence Frodsham we take our duty and obligation to safeguard and protect all people extremely seriously, and we have adopted the national Church of England's robust safeguarding procedures and guidelines.
