On April 8th, the Sunday after Easter, the Marathon will come down Henrietta Street, St John’s Road, restricting access to the church in the morning, so we are moving our main service to 3pm in the afternoon. After cheering the runners in the morning, we make connections with the runners by reflecting on Paul’s encouragement for us all to “run the race” looking to Jesus. Before the service starts you will be able to take part in another act of solidarity, joining with Artist in Residence at Manchester Cathedral, Stephen Raw, to create a large piece "Together Unafraid" marking the anniversary of the Manchester ARENA bombing. Stephen will explain more in church from 12 noon in St John's Church.
