Thank you to all who bought plants last week, just over £50 went to the Carnival & Recreation Committee. This week proceeds will go to Parwich Church. There are still a range of herbaceous plants, shrubs, kitchen garden plants and others, including a large forsythia and a large dogwood which has bright red stems in winter.

If no one is about help yourself to the plants at the gate for Church Farm in Creamery Lane and leave what you think is a fair price in the honesty box. Everything must go.

News of Ballidon Church

Dear all

I’m delighted to say that the church at Ballidon has now been saved and repaired by a tiny charity called the Friends of Friendless Churches. We own nearly 50 churches which we have saved from demolition and decay, and there is now a page on our website about All Saints Ballidon:

Please do get in touch if you want to help at the church as a keyholder or to keep an eye on it for us – we are a very small charity relying on local people to help us look after these important buildings. And we need local contacts at Ballidon.

We also welcome new members – so if you are no longer local but want to support us, please consider joining us as a member!

Best wishes
Caroline Welch, Web Manager at Friends of Friendless Churches .

We will be updating the Diary page this weekend, so if you have any Alsop, Ballidon, Parwich or Pikehall events (July, August and September) that you want to go in the Diary in time to be included in the Peak Five Church Magazine’s July/August issue please send them in by Sunday (24th of June). Note, there is no separate August issue.

Including our Diary in the Church magazine is important as it helps you reach some of those who are not on-line.

Please send Diary information to or leave me a message on tel. 287.

Thank you, Peter

Dear Fitzherbert’s school, Parwich School and Everyone!
What a service we have prepared for you !
HOPE have produced an inspiring film that challenges us all about Global Goals, and what we each can do in our own communities and homes. It is introduced by Emma Watson (Hermione from the Harry Potter films).
We’ll be singing some ‘join in’ hymns to worship God, celebrating birthdays, hearing God’s word from the Bible about this topic, and have some space to pray too.
Coffee (real) , squash and biscuits for all afterwards.
A warm invitation and welcome to all, come and be with your Church family.
Thank you
Carollyn M
Rev’d Carollyn McDonald
