Church Appeal
The floor of the sanctuary of our church has recently had to be replaced, and, as this has been very costly we have started a special appeal for funds to cover this expense:

Online donations can be made on our Everyclick
Parish Appeal Fund page.

Study Group
For anyone wishing to learn more about the Orthodox faith, there is an "Exploring Orthodoxy" meeting, led by Reader Paul, which meets straight after Vespers at the Church of St Aidan and St Chad each Saturday, except on the first Saturday of each month when there is normally a vigil service. There will be no Vespers or study group on Saturday 20th December because of the Diocesan assembly in Manchester on that day.

These meetings open to all Orthodox and non-Orthodox who wish to deepen their understanding of the faith.

On the Second Friday of each month there will be an Akathist service at 7pm. We hold a parish supper on the last Friday of each month, beginning at 7 pm with prayers, then confessions, a bring and share supper, and a group discussion about an aspect of our Faith. 

There will be no Parish Supper on 26th December. Instead Father Gregory is organising a walk. Please contact him for details.
There is normally a parish lunch after the liturgy on the first Sunday of each month.
