Acknowledging his death to be, lay Jesus in the sand.
Anticipating God’s reply, when Satan took his hand. A devil in the form of man, who offered powers tall, would not tempt Christ the holy one to forget God at all!
When 40 days was over, and Jesus had returned, the crowd around rejected him and Christ became concerned. They wanted Christ to suffer pain; a crown of thorns was made. Not believing in his might had made them quite afraid.
They would not listen to his speech and finally twas said, that soon amongst this wooden cross, our liar shall be dead!
A wizard he was thought to be, so Jesus had to strain, a giant cross he carried far - to just increase his pain.
They nailed him to it, hands and feet. He hung a painful way, amongst two criminals near to death – his body on display.
He calmed them down and spoke quite wisely to their final breath. Until at last when sunrise glowed, upon them all came death.

Open church starts again at St Mary's in April and runs through to the end of September. It is your chance to come and look around our church, speak to some of our volunteers, and ask those all important questions.
We will be open each Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:30am - 1st April to 30th September 2015.
St Mary’s is here to serve God in worship and prayer, and to serve all of the people of Newton & Flowery Field. We live to learn more of God and to speak His name through our actions and example. We believe the church should reach out into the community and beyond, therefore we work closely with other agencies in Newton & Hyde, so if we cannot meet a need we can direct you to the right place. We have links with New Charter Housing and social support. We are able to refer to foodbanks, we can also direct you to the right place to get debt support, benefit advice and health/employment issues.
We offer friendship and companionship through our regular groups and we are a 'child friendly' church with lots of facilities for children and young people.
The best way to find out more is either to contact Rev'd Annie Woodcock, our vicar, or just to turn up on a Sunday morning at 10am . You will be most welcome, and you’ll probably meet someone you’ve not seen for ages. It’ll be great to see you soon!

We have registered with easyfundraising.org.uk and this means that anyone who buys items online can help raise money for St Mary's. When you go through easyfundraising to purchase your items we get some money sent to us too, and it doesn't cost you a penny more. For example, when you login to easyfundraising and want to buy something from a store that they are partnered with, they direct you to that store and you then make your purchase in the usual way. By allowing them to direct you, we get some money sent to us, it's that simple.
See the poster below for details, and if you want more help then see Angela Chorlton at church.
