On Saturday we held a curry night in the Church Hall. The excellent curry from a local restaurant was accompanied by slides from India with Indian music. After we had eaten we were entertained by one of Father Richard's super slide shows with commentary, so athough he was in Madagascar on holiday he was with us in spirit. True to the theme of the evening the slide show was of Father Richard's trip to Rajastan. There was a good number of people for the event as can be seen, with additional enertainment for the younger people. Many thanks to those who organised the event and to those who came. A thouroughly enjoyable evening of fellowship that also raised some money for the vestry roof fund.

The Ride and Stride on on Saturday 12th September was a great success, raising well over £100 for the Greater Manchester Churches Preservation Society and St John's Church.
You can see the intrepid riders here about to set off on the epic journey on the morning of a treacherously warm and sunny September day.
The Church itself was open to Riders and Striders from other Churches and visitors included runners, cyclists and even a horse.
Thanks to everyone who helped out, whether walking, riding or serving refreshments in Church. The event was a great success, we hope to see even more people next year!
