St. Margaret's

1st Reading Hebrews 3:12-19 (page 1203 of the pew Bibles)

12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called ‘Today’, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. 14 We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end. 15 As has just been said:

Today, if you hear his voice,
    do not harden your hearts
    as you did in the rebellion.’

16 Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt? 17 And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies perished in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed? 19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.


2nd Reading Matthew 7:24-29 (page 972 of the pew Bibles)

24 ‘Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.’

28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.




LED Lighting Appeal
St. Leonard's Church is raising funds to replace its once-modern lighting with new, energy-efficient, low-maintenance LED Lighting.
The new lighting will save energy and reduce running costs significantly. A specialist Architect has been engaged in designing a scheme which will enhance the lighting of the church while reducing the power consumption.

SPLASH Holiday Club 2014
This year the Holiday Club, for primary school age children, will run from Tuesday 26th to Friday 29th August, from 10am until midday each day. It will be held at Hapton Primary School and the cost will be £1 per session.

Please register in advance for the Holiday Club on Monday 18th August at Hapton Methodist Church between 6 and 7 pm.

Run jointly by St Margaret's and
Hapton Methodist Churches.

Raise funds for St. Leonard's Church just by shopping online (at no extra cost to you). Thousands of popular retailers will donate a percentage of your online sales to St. Leonard's Church through Give as You Live.

What we believe:
St. Leonard's and St. Margaret's are Church of England Churches, and we are part of the Diocese of Blackburn.

Fundamental to our Christian faith is the belief that the Bible is our ultimate authority, for this reason, clear Bible-based preaching is central to our Sunday and midweek services.

The key to understanding the Bible is the person of Jesus Christ - who He is, what He has done, what He will do and how we should respond to Him.
