A unique opportunity
The coming together of All Saints, Great Crosby and St Frideswyde,
Thornton to form a new congregation and new parish presents a unique
opportunity for a new incumbent. Whilst cherishing the history, practice
and experience of both parishes there is a willingness now among the
congregation to look with fresh eyes at the life and ministry of the church.

Led by the new vicar, we want to:

 build on the good work already done in welding two congregations
  into one – with a shared vision for the life and mission of the new
  church.
 review whether the existing pattern and conduct of worship is the best
  that we can achieve.
 develop provision for the nurture and spiritual growth of the
  congregation
 explore new mission opportunities and priorities for the future and
  translate those priorities into action
 maximise the benefit of the St Frideswyde’s land sale proceeds, which
  have been specifically designated for mission, for furthering the life
  and mission of the church
 develop and expand the Shared Ministry Team

Overview of our parish
The notable features and boundary of the new parish and of the former
St Frideswyde and All Saints parishes are shown on the map below.

WHERE WE ARE

Crosby is seven miles north of the centre of Liverpool and marks the
northern edge of the city’s conurbation. Despite its proximity to a large
city, the area has a strong community sense rooted in its social and
political history. It has a socially mixed population of around 40,000 and
includes the areas of Blundellsands and Waterloo. On the north-east
edge of Crosby are Thornton and the more rural village of Little Crosby.

A NEW CHURCH!

The Parish of All Saints with St Frideswyde is being created under a
Pastoral Measure bringing together the former parishes of St
Frideswyde, Thornton and All Saints, Great Crosby, both churches being
mission churches. The new parish will have a population of
approximately 11,500 (Census for 2001).

WHY THE MERGER?

Faced with its two buildings needing major capital investment St
Frideswyde’s PCC has, over the past five years, been considering many
different ways of taking forward the work of the church in Thornton -
including demolition of the existing buildings and building a new church.
But taking account of falling numbers and the increasing age of the
congregation the PCC decided that the church’s mission would be best
served by seeking to merge with All Saints – thus releasing significant
capital from the sale of the St Frideswyde’s land and allowing us to focus
our time and energy on strengthening and developing our mission and
exploring new initiatives – rather than fund-raising and buildings.

The proceeds from the sale of the St Frideswyde’s land will now be
made available to resource mission in the enlarged parish. So as a result
of the merger we will have a greater potential for growth and long term
sustainability. Some further background to the merger is given on St
Frideswyde’s web-site at www.saintfrides.org.uk./

HOW WE BEGAN

All Saints became a parish in 1982, having previously been a daughter
church of St Luke, Great Crosby and St Frideswyde was built in 1961
when the new parish was created from the ancient parish of St Helen,
Sefton with which it later formed a united benefice, now dissolved by the
pastoral measure. The patrons of the parish are the Bishop of Liverpool,


                               Page 5 of 26
the Church Pastoral Aid Society, the Vicar of Saint Luke’s and the Rector
of Sefton.

WHAT OUR PARISH IS LIKE

The new parish will have a population of approximately 11,500 (Census
for 2001) It is adjacent to the A565 and is predominantly suburban with a
full social mix but little representation of ethnic minority groups. Numbers
within the parish are stable although the local authority is considering
designating some land for future housing. To the north of the A565 is an
area of substantial detached owner occupied properties. The area
closest to All Saints church largely comprises 1930s semi-detached
houses whilst to the south of Brownmoor Lane and in Thornton there are
areas of social housing, some of which has transferred to owner
occupation. Throughout the area are pockets of newer residential
development.

Thornton was an Urban Priority Area until the 1990’s. In the Thornton
area One Vision, a local housing association, controls large pockets of
social housing. Green Croft Social Housing has only recently been
completed. As within many areas the number of young children has
dropped (hence the closing of Thornton Primary School). Patterns of
family life have changed in some areas with more couples going to work
or further education. One significant event which will have an effect on
everyday life in the parish will be the eventual building of a new bypass
for traffic. This has been approved but work has yet to start.

There is no industry within the parish and whilst some residents are
employed locally in shops, schools and other service providers, many
are commuters to other parts of Merseyside. Social facilities are- two
public houses serving meals; four private sports and social clubs; and
two public parks. There is one supermarket and two blocks of local
shops. The Crosby ‘village’ centre is in the neighbouring parish. There is
scarcity on the number of venues available for hire for both private hire
and as venues for groups such as uniformed organisations.

Residents are attracted to the area by the wide range of good quality
schools within the parish and surrounding district and the easy access to
local shopping and transport.

Our church and our people
OUR LICENSED MINISTERS

The parish has an Ordained Local Minister (OLM), Liz Halbert, who
works as a teacher in her full time role, but has had a working agreement
for 3-5 duties per week. Liz is currently licensed to the united benefice
and has ministered in both St Frideswyde's and St Helen's as well as
other churches in the cluster. She presides at HC - both CW and BCP -
preaches twice monthly and leads all forms of service from BCP and CW
morning and evening prayer and compline through to family and parade
services, weddings, funerals and the burial of ashes. Liz has a particular
ministry working with families and children including baptism,
confirmation and wedding preparation and has lead a prayer group held
monthly at St. Frideswyde.

The parish also has a Reader, Andrew Thompson-Smith, who leads
services and preaches about once a month. Andrew also leads the
Lifewords and Food for Thought groups and has been very involved with
St Frideswyde’s mission programme and in maintaining the web-site.

Members of the congregation make a tireless contribution as volunteers
in the smooth running of the church including assistance before, during
and after services.

A Shared Ministry Team (SMT) has supported the ministry of the OLM at
St Frideswyde for a number of years and there is an intention to develop
this within the new parish. The team began as a GUML (Group for Urban
Ministry and Leadership) and changed to an SMT in 1996. This team has
also had responsibility for pastoral visits and home communions,
planning and leading services, and has been actively involved in the
mission programme.


                               Page 7 of 26
OUR REGULAR SERVICES

The usual pattern of services is as follows:

9.00 a.m  Each Sunday: Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer)
10.30 a.m 1st Sunday: Family Service
          2nd Sunday: Holy Communion (Common Worship)
          3rd Sunday: Parade Service for uniformed organisations
          4th Sunday: Holy Communion (Common Worship)
          5th Sunday: Morning Prayer on Sunday (Common Worship)

This pattern was that of All Saints and we have agreed to continue with it
until we are more settled as a parish with a new incumbent.

The pattern for 10.30 a.m. services is varied to accommodate the
attendance of the uniformed organisations at Harvest Festival,
Remembrance Service and for a carol service in December. Special
services are also held for Mothering Sunday and a Christingle Service for
the Children’s Society. Holy Baptism is also accommodated in the 10.30
a.m. service pattern when required.

There are 3 volunteer organists and a music group consisting of piano,
violin, percussion, guitars and vocalists but there is no choir. The music
group are keen to recruit new and younger members.

CHURCHMANSHIP

Our churchmanship can be described as open evangelical and in both
churches there has been an emphasis on the Bible as the guide to both
Christian belief and behaviour. This has been central to both preaching
and house groups.

Neither PCC has passed Resolutions A, B or C of The Priests
(Ordination of Women) Measure

OUR CHURCH GROUPS

Uniformed organisations include Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies and
Beavers who meet throughout the week in the Scout Hut at the back of
the church. Although ‘sponsored’ by the church, they are independent of
it, run their own affairs and own their building.




                              Page 9 of 26
All Saints Children’s Ventures Ltd – a charitable company limited by
guarantee established by the church. It offers daily play groups,
breakfast club, after-school club and wraparound care, some in the
church hall and some in partnership with Forefield Community Infant
School on their premises. Although an independent charity, the current
trustees are all church members and the minister of All Saints is a
trustee ex-officio. A manager and paid staff are responsible for the day to
day running. Rental for the church hall from the charity is a significant
source of revenue for the church.

Women’s Fellowship – a well-established and well-supported group
which meets each Wednesday afternoon in the vestry; Holy Communion
is shared monthly.

Lifewords – a meditative Bible Study on Thursday mornings meeting,
since the closure of St Frideswyde’s buildings, at Rushton’s Garden
Centre Café.

House Group(s) All Saints has had a small house group meeting
fortnightly but this stopped meeting during the period the leader was
having hospital treatment. It needs to start again and the leader,
Margaret Hardman, has every intention of restarting.

Badminton Club meets each Wednesday evening in the hall for church
members and non-church members. A ‘social’ badminton session for
ladies takes place on a weekday afternoon in term-time.

At Saint Frideswydes there has been a Prayer Group meeting on the 1st
Monday of each month at 6.30

OUR HOME AND OVERSEAS MISSION

All Saints PCC has had a policy of tithing general income and this is
allocated at the end of each year. Some causes, such as CPAS,
Sponsor a Child, the Children’s Society and Royal British Legion receive
regular donations whilst the remaining money is allocated by PCC
members on a points system, resulting in some variation in the causes
supported from year to year. The church has operated a practice of
collecting donations each month for disaster emergency relief, enabling a
quick response to particular disasters. Saint Frideswydes have, for a
number of years, sponsored a child in Thailand.




                               Page 10 of 26
St Frideswyde’s has engaged in many mission programmes in Thornton
over the years. Most recently Linda Jones, leader of the diocesan
Church Growth Team, visited us in autumn 2007 and encouraged the
PCC to start mission thinking by asking what is it that
motivates/excites/energizes each of us as individuals - and then to ask
how can those things be used to reach out to our community. Stimulated
by Linda, the Shared Ministry Team came up with a long list of the things
that each member of the SMT is personally energized by and the SMT
concluded that all of these could be used in mission. So from the
beginning of 2008 St Frideswyde’s was engaged in an ambitious mission
programme with several events taking place each month. Over the
following three years this mission programme included:

 Lots of Dance Nights – led by the world class dance teacher who uses
  the church hall – including the American Dance Night shown below




 Jazz and other music concerts and whisky, wine and cheese tasting
  evenings
 Alpha, Journeys and Living Distinctively courses
 Film night @ Frides – films and refreshments bi-monthly in the church
 Sanctus – a midweek evening for quiet guided reflection
 The Big Lunch street party for the area around the church
 Open Table – a midweek communion service followed by simple
  lunch
 Knit Wits knitting and sewing group in Rushton’s Garden Centre
  coffee shop
 Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day special services
 Bowls for Beginners at the Nags Head bowling green


                              Page 11 of 26
 Food for Thought – a bi-monthly meal in people’s homes at which a
  special guest is interviewed about their life and faith – aimed at fringe
  or non-church members.
 St Francis of Assisi - Blessing of the Animals – a service to give
  thanks for pets




We particularly liked the fact that the programme we offered to the
community had a good mix of 'social' and 'spiritual' events - but in fact we
saw everything as a spiritual activity. The 'social' events were good in
themselves - not just as steps on a journey of faith. At the heart of the
mission programme was the desire to break down barriers and build
relationships and to create opportunities to share our faith with others.

We saw some definite fruit from this programme. We built bridges of trust
with people outside the church. People who had never been inside the
church and profess no Christian faith started helping with events. It didn’t
result in new people coming to church on Sunday mornings but for the
first time in years the church developed a fringe membership which,
through Food for Thought in particular, is continuing after the closure of
the St Frides buildings.

OUR FINANCIAL POSITION

A copy of the accounts for each parish for 2010 is attached.




                               Page 12 of 26
Both parishes have a tradition of paying reasonable clergy expenses and
expect clergy to take proper holidays and days off during the week and
take time for training and personal development, recognising the
importance of all these factors in the well-being of the incumbent and the
ability of the vicar to lead, guide and support the lay leadership of the
church.

St Frideswyde’s PCC has decided that after settling all outstanding debts
related to the sale of it’s land 10% of the net proceeds are to be divided
equally between Sefton Parish Church and The Liverpool Diocesan
Board of Finance. The monies for the LDBF are requested to be used for
mission priorities.

St Frideswyde’s PCC has also decided that, after the gifts to Sefton and
the LDBF, the balance of proceeds from the sale of the land, which is
anticipated to be in the region of £500,000, is to be designated for
mission both within the new benefice and more widely across the
deanery. This allows the money to be used for other purposes as it is not
restricted. The Charity Commission will expect that the money will not be
allowed to accumulate but will be used for the purposes for which it was
intended.

Our church and our community
THE LOCAL SCHOOLS

There is no Anglican church school within the parish. Forefield
Community Infant School, Forefield Junior School and Chesterfield High
School are in close proximity to the church and there is potential to
strengthen existing links. All three schools have expressed their strong
desire to continue their links with the church and also to strengthen them
with a suggestion from the junior school that the new incumbent might
possibly become a community governor.

Also within the parish are a Roman Catholic High School (Holy Family), a
Roman Catholic Primary School (St William of York) and a Special
School (Newfield).

In addition a former primary school in Thornton is being converted to
become a part of the Hugh Baird College in Bootle, run by the local
authority, for severely disabled KS5 students. The Hugh Baird College
chaplain is keen to see the involvement of local churches and would like
to explore opportunities with the new incumbent.

OTHER LOCAL INSTITUTIONS

There are a number of residential and care facilities in the parish.
Jospice International is a local charity running a much-valued hospice
within the parish, the last incumbent at Saint Frideswydes having been
chaplain, while ministry to the Tithebarn Masonic Home for the Elderly
has been shared with the Methodist minister, celebrating Holy
Communion monthly.

There is also a nursing home at Thornton Hall; sheltered accommodation
at George Moore Court; a crematorium and cemetery; Thornton Health
Centre; a garden centre; two riding schools; a canine training centre; a
Sure Start centre; and Crosby Hall Educational Trust, a residential centre
for school parties.

Our church and our buildings
OUR CHURCH AND HALL

All Saints Church was built in 1934 and served a dual purpose as place
of worship and social hall. In 1957 a hall was built alongside the church
and in 1964 the church was re-ordered to form a traditional church. The
two buildings were joined by a glass-fronted link in 1975 (recently
updated). The church interior is simple with seating for about 180.




The hall is in regular use for parish and community social functions and
as one of the two venues for All Saints Children’s Ventures Ltd., a
childcare charity established by the church.




                              Page 15 of 26
It is very probable that there will be need to be some work done on the
church building and hall sooner rather than later.

OUR CHURCH GROUNDS

The church is fronted by a well-kept garden tended by volunteers whilst
on the north side a Garden of Remembrance was created in 1989 for the
interment of ashes. To the rear are a large field, car park and Scout Hut.




OUR CLERGY HOUSE

The pastoral scheme for the merger provides for the retention of the
current St Frideswyde’s Rectory as the parsonage house. The use of this
purpose-built rectory is intended to assist in confirming the church’s
intention to continue its mission to Thornton following the merger of the
parishes.

The wider context of our church
THE APPROACH WE’VE HAD FROM ST HELEN, SEFTON

Prior to All Saints and St Frideswydes coming together St Frideswydes
was in a united benefice with St Helen, Sefton, who will now be in a state
of Inter- Regnum and are seeking a way forward. In July the PCC of St
Helen approached the joint PCCs of All Saints and St Frideswyde’s
seeking to join again in the form of a united benefice. The joint PCCs
voted almost unanimously in saying ’Not at present’. St Helen’s PCC has
subsequently asked for clarification whether that means ‘not for the initial
settling in period for the new church and new incumbent’ OR ‘not in the
foreseeable future’. They have said that they would be happy to stay in
inter-regnum until January 2013 if they can then join with us. A further
and fuller response to St Helen’s will need to be made with some
urgency when the new incumbent is in place.

OUR DEANERY

Sefton Deanery is small and enjoys good working relationships across its
2 clusters based on Formby in the north and Crosby in the south. There
are 7.5 incumbents, 3 curates, 2 Ordained Local Ministers 1 Non-
Stipendiary Minister and numerous retired clergy! Ministerial
Development Reviews are done frequently and clergy are always
welcome to make suggestions as to what they would like to see on the
agenda of chapter meetings. We hold an annual joint meeting with the
Readers.

Synod is held 4 times a year and has agreed to the appointment of a
family worker based mainly in the northern cluster who is due to start in
September 2012.

We would welcome an incumbent who will participate in deanery and
cluster life to further mission. To that end, the Diocese of Liverpool have
encouraged every deanery to have a ‘champion’ of Fresh Expressions in
the mixed economy church and we see this post as an ideal place for
such a person.

The ‘Southern Cluster’ Clergy Chapter meetings take place every two
weeks and are very helpful and supportive. In addition there is a track
record of working together across the churches- e.g. a shared Alpha



                               Page 17 of 26
course, shared marriage and confirmation preparation classes and
exploring common areas of mission.

OUR ECUMENICAL RELATIONS

All Saints is part of the ‘Churches Together in Great Crosby’ group
(CTiGC). This was set up, and a covenant signed, in 1986. The other
churches in the group are:
     St Luke, Great Crosby (Anglican)
     Moor Lane Methodist Church
     St Helen (Roman Catholic)
     SS Peter and Paul (Roman Catholic)

The group set up the Crossroads Café and drop-in centre in the middle
of Crosby in 1986 and moved into purpose-built premises in 2003. Its
value to the community is undoubted.

The covenant was reviewed in 2002 and the five churches pledged
themselves to working together in the future. CTiGC organises a weekly
ecumenical service of Morning Prayer, held in each church in turn, an
annual service for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and an open air
service in the centre of Crosby each Good Friday. In addition the group
organises Lenten talks and runs a Welcome-in Scheme for newcomers
to the area. Leaflets giving invitations to all Christmas and Easter
services are delivered throughout the area and a crib is placed in the
village each Christmas. The clergy meet monthly and a council, with
members appointed from each church, meets quarterly.

All Saints has enjoyed a close relationship with Moor Lane Methodist
Church, sharing some services and social events.

In Thornton there has been no formal link between churches although
there has been a working relationship with the Kings Church. Within the
parish there are also two Roman Catholic Churches, Saint William of
York in Thornton and Saint Mary’s in Little Crosby.


Conclusion
We are excited about the potential of the new All Saints with St
Frideswyde church and we look forward to the future, working together
with the new incumbent to take forward the ministry and mission of the
church           in          the           enlarged            parish.
