Service of Thanksgiving and celebration in St Columba’s Church for those who died during the pandemic restrictions
St Columba’s Church is holding a service at 2.30pm this Sunday 15th May to celebrate and give thanks for those who died during the pandemic, and in particular for those who felt the restrictions meant they could not properly mark the death of a loved one.
We anticipate this will be the first of a few occasions when we do this, so there will be other opportunities for those who cannot make this particular time, but all are welcome. If you wish to attend specifically to pay tribute to your relative, please let us know the relevant name so they can be mentioned and prayed for. The invitation is to all members of the church and the wider community.

Due to a collision involving a fuel tanker, which occurred this morning (Sunday 27th February), near to the Black Brook Farm on the A57, the Manchester Road was blocked by the Police near to the Bell Hagg Garden Centre.
Bell Hagg Garden Centre remains open.
South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue is presently dealing with the situation.
The light was awful, the editing is equally bad; it’s far, far from being a great photo. But I was struck by the fact that despite living here for 17 years, walking these same streets day in, day out, one quick flight with the Mavic and I saw a view of the place that I had never ever seen before.
I love that it gives the impression that the A57 is some near-Parisian tree-lined boulevard, and that my childhood suburb is perched on a cliff overlooking the City Centre. Neither of these things are true, of course, but looking at this here, they could be.
