Confirmations – Wednesday 29th May
The Bishop of Beverley braved major traffic jams crossing the Pennines to come and confirm eight young people at St Hilda’s. Five candidates were from the home Parish and three from St Paul’s in Salford. Members of both communities packed the church to give their support on a wonderful occasion.
Some of the candidates are pictured with the Bishop along with the two Parish priests, Canon Wyatt and Fr Croft.
Beetle Drive – Saturday 27th April
Total concentration reigned in the Croft as 29 ‘players’ competed to attach body parts to beetles, the process controlled by the roll of a dice.
It was great fun and raised a total of £220 for church funds.
Many thanks to Julie, Sheila, Ken and Paul for all their hard work and to Jess for taking charge of the Raffle.
Soup & Pancake Evening – April 12th
An event that was due to take place on Shrove Tuesday but had to postponed. Phyllis, assisted by her daughter Andrea, served up a delicious menu of soup (three varieties) followed by pancakes and rounded off with assorted desserts. The total raised, including donations, at the moment, is £130 which is to support the Church Urban Fund.
Radcliffe Male Voice Choir – February 10th
On Sunday afternoon we were treated to a performance by the Choir of musical items ranging from songs from the shows to spirituals. The show was held together by a virtuoso performance as conductor and teller of hilarious corny jokes by Keith. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. £253 was raised for church funds.
Prayer and Meditation Monday January 14th 7.30pm
This is a new venture for St Hilda’s. It will be a quiet reflective evening based on Peregrini Prayer. It is intended that this will take place once a month.
