Remembrance Sunday Services
This year is, of course, the 100th anniversary of the original armistice on November 11th. Consequently our services that morning are slightly different
to normal. There will be a celebration of the Eucharist, with hymns, at 9.30am and then at 10.30am there will be a special
Remembrance Day service which will be attended by members of the uniformed groups and will include the two minutes’
silence, the reading of all the names from our war memorials, and a laying of wreaths at the war memorial in the churchyard.
This service will not include a celebration of the Eucharist.
The present church building celebrated 300 years in 2014 and events to mark this milestone took place in

The tower has been renovated . The result with its golden weather vane and the new clock face
is now clear for all to see. An interesting story has been told about Buffalo Bill. It was reported that he visited the church
and shot the weather vane over his shoulder ! When it was removed a bullet hole was found in it . Make your own mind up

FRIENDS OF ST MARTIN
The Friends of St.Martin group was set up in February
1985 to provide a way of enabling people who because of past association with Ashton-upon-Mersey and its church might like
to give some financial support to the maintenance of the fabric of the church and churchyard.
Many visitors to the church have memories of their family
connections with the area, perhaps had attended St.Martin’s day school, been baptised or married at St.Martin’s,
or have relatives buried in the churchyard.
Those who subscribe as a “Friend” of St.Martin’s receive a newsletter twice
a year which gives them news of what is happening in the church, repairs to the fabric etc.
for an annual subscription of £20 from those who would like to make a contribution to the upkeep of this church.
Should you wish to donate more then this would be most acceptable.
