Bishops Visits

Bishops Visits.

At the end of April, Macclesfield deanery had a visit from our three Bishops', Mark, Julie and Sam.  They toured the area visiting churches in Macclesfield and beyond.  On Tuesday Bishops Mark and Julie came to our benefice.  Their day started in Bosley, where they had a look at the church and our new facilities.  Then they went down to the Methodist chapel to visit the Bosley Memorial Garden, where prayers were said for those killed or affected by the disaster nearly 7 years ago.  They also met people who were there on the day of the explosion or who were involved in the days and weeks that followed.

They then travelled over to Sutton to have lunch in our newly refurbished church hall.



On Wednesday Bishop Sam visited Wincle school, where we joined in whole school worship and learned about 'Wow' and 'Ow' moments as Head Teacher Mrs Smith dropped her precious chocolate Easter egg!  He then met members of the school Ethos Council who give Bishop Sam a tour of the school.


In need of refreshment after visiting the school, John then took Bishop Sam down to sample some beer at the Wincle Brewery, and then to top off a perfect afternoon, they went for ice cream at Blaze Farm.
