    Our Leadership
    Rev Julia Monaghan, our minister, moved to Leigh from Birmingham in 2012, along with husband Sam, a director of Barnardos Children's Charity. Previously Julia worked for 25 years as a Local Authority Social Worker then served for 5 years as a Methodist minister on the Birmingham circuit.  Supporting Julia is a church family that includes local preachers, a mission enabler for older people, church stewards and many members who take care of our building.
     
    Worship
    We meet for worship on most Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and enjoy tea & coffee
    together after the service. We'd be delighted if you came and joined us. 
    The exception is the 1st Sunday of each month.  On those days we'll meet for tea/coffee at 9:30 am and then join our friends at Wesley for a joint service at their newly refurbished building. Lifts will normally be available.
    Also, a friendly group of Highlands' people meet in a home every two weeks for fellowship. We meet at 7.30pm on Tuesdays. A warm welcome awaits you if you would like to join us. Contact Kathy on 01702 714528, or click here for more details.
     
    Manchester Bomb Attack
    Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the appalling bomb attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester on 22 May.  We offer this prayer of response and a poem by Tony Walsh that explains how Mancunians feel about their city.
    "Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they are doing."  Luke 23:34
