Church Magazine


The church magazine is published at the beginning of each month. It has articles written by the Vicar and other people from the church. It also has an up-to-date list of what is happening and how to get involved. We hope you enjoy reading it.

More Information

The social events held at St Thomas, are many and varied and the church magazine includes details of Jumble Sales, Race Nights, Auction of Promises Evenings and many more .
All of the events are held either in the main Church Hall or where practical, the more comfortable lounge. 

Dates and times of the annual children's events are also included . One of the most popular of these is the Monster Mash which is held as near as possible to Halloween . The November/December edition also give details of the Children's Christmas Party, which features Santa in his grotto.

In addition to forthcoming events, the magazine also features items of general interest; Adam Laskey the headmaster at St Thomas' Primary School usually keeps us up to date with what's happening at the school and there are often humourous extracts from different sources There's usually a contribution from the Moorside and District Historical Society which is always interesting. There are also updates of events that the uniformed groups have been involved in are included at appropriate times.

Many local businesses advertise in the magazine, enabling readers to discover the services offered. Many of us prefer to use a reliable local tradesman rather than the larger companies as it's usually cheaper and of course it helps the community. If you wish to advertise in the magazine the annual charges are £48 full page, £24 half page, £12 quarter page, £6 one-eighth page. Please contact Julia Haigh on 0161 624 1845 or Corinne Ogden on 0161 626 7537 if you wish to enquire about placing an advert.

The magazine is available on the table at the back of church and costs £1. It can also be delivered locally each month if preferred - July/August and December/January's editions in addition to each of the other months of the year. Please contact Lynn Weston or Julia Haigh to arrange delivery, if you'd like to receive a copy to keep in touch with what's going on in the village.
