Christ Church Eccleston - Building for the Future
As a church, we are engaged in the process of building for the future. This process is multi-faceted; the way we are growing as individuals, how we look outwards to the needs of the whole community, and quite literally as we maintain and improve our buildings.
As far as this third aspect is concerned, we have made a good start. The generous donations received so far have enabled us to embark on this journey, but we do still have a long way to go with our fund raising.
For more information, and the latest news on this, please follow the link to the right.
You can also find a blogherededicated to the "Christ Church Eccleston Spire and Building Development Programme". It is being kept upto date with all the latest fundraising news, including things you can do if you want to help, so please visit as often as you can (and join in on the blog if you want to!)

Eccleston to become a life-size advent calendar!
This Advent we are hoping to set Eccleston alight with windows which will tell the true story of Christmas. In doing all this we hope to encourage our community to reflect on the coming of Jesus at Christmas.
During Advent, 1-24th December, a newly decorated window will be lit up around the Eccleston area each evening from 6-8pm. The
windows will slowly reveal the story of the first Christmas with a new window added each day until all are lit.
The first window, lit on 1st December at 6:00 pm, will be at Christ Church Vicarage on Chapel Lane, where visitors will also be able to enjoy refreshments and Carol Singing as part of the launch celebrations. The final window, lit on 24th December, will be unveiled at Christ Church itself as part of the Church’s Christmas Eve Crib Service, beginning at 4pm.
People of all ages are encouraged to visit as many windows as possible and join in the fun.
