Lightfoot Lane – Reopened

Lightfoot Lane – Reopened

Over the last few weeks Lightfoot Lane has been closed between Eastway and the Lansdown Hill junction.

The road has now reopened, but there are still traffic lights at the junction causing some delays.

ROAD CLOSED: Lightfoot Lane from Eastway

ROAD CLOSED: Lightfoot Lane from Eastway

IMPORTANT: If you travel to Fulwood Free Methodist Church via Eastway then please take note of the following information.

Lightfoot Lane is currently closed between Eastway and the Lansdown Hill Junction and will be for at least three weeks from 16th August 2017. We’ll let you know when it has reopened.

There are also traffic lights on Eastway itself which is likely to create delays at certain times of day.

The closure is to enable the fitting of a new drain to service the new houses in Wesley Chase.

Fulwood Free Methodist Church is still accessible via Garstang Road (A6) and Lightfoot Lane.

The following map shows the area section that is closed; below the map is a set of pictures of the roadworks as they are today:

Children’s and Youth Worker Vacancy

Children’s and Youth Worker Vacancy

We have an exciting vacancy for a Children’s and Youth Worker.

At Fulwood Free Methodist Church our vision is to ‘be disciples and make disciples’ as we reach out to the local community, which includes children and youth. We are a growing church situated in a suburban area of Preston. We seek to cater for people of all ages and there is a thriving youth and children’s work already in place.

Due to the continuing growth in numbers of families and young people we believe that the next step is to appoint someone to join the team as a children’s and youth worker. We are looking for someone with the ability to build upon the youth and children’s ministries already in place and to grow this in line with the vision of the church. We need someone who can work within the existing staff team and who can also lead and develop teams of volunteers.

If you are interested in applying please see the linked job description and follow the enclosed instructions to apply.

Closing date for applications 31/03/2016.

Easter 2012 Sermon Series

This Sunday we are starting our new Sermon Series leading up to Easter.

In the mornings as we move closer to the cross and the resurrection our title will be Focus on the Cross.

The bible tells us in Luke 9:51 that “Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem!”

The cross is like a cut diamond! It has many bright facets which catch the light of God’s glory. One key facet is the story of atonement; how does Jesus take our sins so we are forgiven?

In the evening we’ll be looking at The Short Epistles.

The Epistles were letters written to a person or a group of people in an area. Some of these letter are lengthy, but there are some that are so short that there length they are only counted in verses.

Despite their size these letters still have something to say to each one of us.

A leaflet for this series is available here.

The picture that we’ve used for the Focus on the Cross series comes from a recent visit to Lindisfarne. It’s a simple wooden cross that’s been erected on a small island just off the main island.  This has been a place of Christian worship for centuries, and there right at the centre of it was an empty cross. Without the cross and the subsequent resurrection our faith is just like many other belief systems, with the cross our faith stands alone as one where we follow a living saviour.

1 Corinthians defines the importance of the cross more eloquently than I could ever manage:

For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless. And we apostles would all be lying about God—for we have said that God raised Christ from the grave. But that can’t be true if there is no resurrection of the dead. And if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins. In that case, all who have died believing in Christ are lost! And if our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world.

1 Corinthians 15:13-19
