St Bridget's Parish Church serves the small town of West Kirby, on the Dee estuary.

The Church was founded by Christian Vikings from Ireland, so we have a thousand years of experience of bringing people the good news of the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ. People who come into St Bridget's today still encounter God's love in the beautiful, holy building and in reflective worship and stimulating preaching. We are trying to represent the Church of England at its best.

St Bridget's, West Kirby and Caldy Church take the safety of everyone within our churches very seriously, and expects that everyone will work within the safeguarding policy of the Parish, a copy of which can be found on our noticeboards. 

In particular, the Parish expects anyone who becomes aware of a safeguarding risk with children or vulnerable adults, or an actual abuse, to raise this immediately with the person(s) with responsibility for safeguarding within the Parish. 

The Safeguarding Co-ordinator for the Parish is Bethan Halpenny, contacted on 07837 755214     bethanhc@live.co.uk

Prayer for the week

Risen, ascended Lord, as we rejoice at your triumph, fill your Church on earth with power and compassion, that all who are estranged by sin may find forgiveness and know your peace, to the glory of God the Father. Amen.

Thought for the week

Ascension and Pentecost. Moments of departure and arrival. Moments of potential despair followed by times of great ecstasy and expectation. Jesus’ first followers went through huge emotional turmoil in those weeks that included his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, his trial, his crucifixion, his resurrection, his appearances in unexpected situations and then his being taken from them in a cloud. But that departure was tempered with exciting promises. Jesus’ final words included “When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be filled with power, and you will be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, in all Judaea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth”. (Acts 1 verse 8) Soon afterwards, the Holy Spirit descended on those first followers, at the time that we call Pentecost, and they were transformed. We too live in the power of the Holy Spirit and are transformed by our faith. In prayer, in worship, in study, in relating to others – in all these ways we deepen our understanding of the power of the Holy Spirit in our own lives. Infused with this power, we act as witnesses, wherever we are and whoever we relate to. The current restrictions on movement are opening up new ways of acting as witnesses. For those with access to the new technologies, infinite possibilities are available. My thought for this week is to suggest that we all think through how, as we emerge from current restrictions, we can balance our traditional ways of meeting and communicating with the new possibilities now available to us to act as witnesses to the Good News. The challenge will be to remain inclusive, so that those who cannot easily travel, and those who do not have access to the new technology, are fully included. John Smith
