Hest Bank United Reformed Church


Hest Bank

The Church and Church Hall are shared with the St Luke' Anglican Church. This enables a combined Christian witness to the village of Slyne-with-Hest.

Shady Lane, Slyne-with-Hest, Lancaster. LA2 6JD

Carol Singing

As usual, we shall be carol singing around the village in December. On Tuesday, December 19th we start at Hillcroft at 6.30 p.m. and then on to Greenroyd at 7.30 p.m. On Thursday, December 21st we start at The Thorns at 6.30 p.m. and end up at the Hest Bank Hotel at 8 p.m.

Our Food Collection.

We continue to collect food for our food bank each Thursday morning, but we no longer take it to the Balmoral children's centre. Sadly the centre closed in March due to council cutbacks. The services were transferred to the Westgate children's centre where we now take our full collection. This is a bigger centre and appears very busy, serving the needs of a wider area. The food is distributed by those who work at the centre and is given to families with real need, so please continue to support this. If you are not able to come down to church on Thursday morning, but would like to contribute, please just leave the items in the vestry on Sunday morning, or whenever you happen to be there. Many Thanks Val Gill

Brass Band Concert

We once more look forward to the Brass Band Concert on Sunday, December 10th. This year we gather for Mulled wine and mince pies at 6.30 p.m. but there will be no meal after the concert. Tickets cost £10 for the concert and will be on sale shortly.

Afternoon Tea

The afternoon tea in aid of the Homeless will take place on January 7th at 3 p.m. Once more we hope to be entertained by the members of Junior Church but everyone is welcome to read a poem, tell a story, dance, sing or play an instrument.

On a Practical Note....

During the inter-regnum the Rev. David Greenwood will be our pastoral link person. If anyone needs to contact a minister, talk to the church secretary or one of the elders, who can put you in touch.
