Welcome

Welcome to St Bert’s Church, Norton Parish

We are a lively and friendly Church, serving the homes and businesses of Windmill Hill, Norton and Murdishaw, which together comprise Norton Parish.

We are actively involved in our local community, and work closely with the other churches of Runcorn.

Together we want to help all ages
find in the love of Jesus Christ,
fullness of life and joy,
help for the present (whatever that may be)
and a sure hope for the future right into eternity.

Nomination to Tithe Committee 2021

Each year 10% of St Bert’s income is set aside to be donated to worthy causes, in line with biblical tithing. St Bert’s PCC are keen to involve the wider congregation in the allocation of these tithe payments. Nominations close on Friday 21st March. If you would like to nominate a charity then please visit the Tithe page.

Given the current situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to close the church building for the time being. Although public worship is allowed in a church building, for the safety of all we have decided to opt for virtual services only, at this time. We will be carefully monitoring the situation and when we deem it safe to reopen the building and regather for worship there, we will do so and give notice of reopening.

I feel it is important to remind everyone (including myself!) that God continues to love the world he created and is still at work within the world to bring hope and healing, particularly at times like this. Because of that, although the building is closed, the church is very much alive in the community via other means. As a church, we wish to continue supporting and caring for people as best we can under the circumstances so, if there is anything you need or there is any way you feel we might be able to help at this time, please get in touch. 

Services will continue to be live-streamed via our Facebook page on Sunday mornings at 10.30. Please take care of yourselves and one another and be assured of our prayers and God’s loving presence with you at this time.

Steve.
