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

Alternatively, contact Pauline Butterfield (the Diocesan Safeguarding Officer) on 01928-718834 Ext 221

Prayer for the week

Holy Spirit, sent by the Father, ignite in us your holy fire; strengthen your children with the gift of faith, revive your Church with the breath of love, and renew the face of the earth, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thought for the week

William Temple (1881-1944) was Archbishop of Canterbury during the Second World War and was concerned with questions of social and economic justice, by advocating a society that more fully reflected the values of the Kingdom of God. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, he held a 'mirror' to mid-twentieth century Britain and pointed out those areas where it fell well short of God's ideal. In his popular book, Christianity and the Social Order (1942), Temple proposed many reforms that were subsequently to be incorporated into policies that constituted the framework of the welfare state. Archbishop Temple believed that the Holy Spirit could profoundly influence each one of us in and explained the process in the following way. It’s no good giving me a play like Hamlet or King Lear and telling me to write a play like that. Shakespeare could do it; I can’t. And it is no good showing me a life like the life of Jesus and telling me to live a life like that. Jesus could do it; I can’t. But if the genius of Shakespeare could come and live in me, then I could write plays like his. And if the Spirit of Jesus could come and live in me, then I could live a life like his. A happy Pentecost! David Chester
