Jubilee Jamboree!

Pineapple in party hatLet’s get ready to party! Yes we’re celebrating 50 years of the URC and here at Mersey Synod we’re going to town… well Parkgate and Neston URC to be precise!

It’s a free family fun day  – there’ll be an ice cream van, a craft station, a bouncy castle, a labyrinth, parachute games, a children’s worker and more.

There’s also plenty for adults (and yes, you can go on the bouncy castle too!) with a time of historical reflection, sessions on Muddy Church, interactive Café Jam and even puppet workshops.

It’s not to be missed! Save the date! Watch out for more information in the coming months.

When: Saturday 16 July
Where: Parkgate and Neston URC
Time: 10am-3pm.

Mission Project

Minister in Residence cover imageRead about the Mission Project at Keld in this booklet (pdf), which tells a positive story of an adventure in rural ministry, sponsored by the Northern and Yorkshire URC Synods. 

It covers the first ten years of the Minister in Residence weeks held at Keld (2009–19), outlining how ministers drawn from various Christian denominations have exercised a ministry of presence at Keld – a quintessential remote, rural setting – and reflecting upon the experience of the church offering ministry to tourists.
