Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. Dr. Unsworth’s talk last Friday at St. Johns was a very interesting & enlightening presentation. This is only the 3rd such Extraordinary Jubilee in the history of the Church. Jubilee years stem from the Jewish tradition when debts were cancelled, prisoners let free etc. Jesus begins his ministry with just such a proclamation. “The spirit of the Lord has been given to me….to proclaim the Lord’s year of favour”. Please support Dr. Unsworth’s second presentation on Friday 11th March at 7pm in St John’s Church.
We welcome Eddison Harry Greenwood, Declan Thomas Naylor, Athena Fai Ho-McKenna & Jayden Finley Downham who were baptised here at St. Aidan’s last Sunday
