Our usual times of worship are 10.45am (Holy communion usually the first Sunday of the month), 6.30pm – Holy Communion usually second Sunday of the month, and 9am – Holy Communion usually on the third Sunday of the month.

GARDEN OF REMEMBRANCE
THE GARDEN OF REMEMBRANCE at Ainsdale was dedicated at Easter 1999. The purpose of the Garden is to provide a focal point in Ainsdale for the ashes of loved ones to be scattered * The Garden is set in a quiet and peaceful location and provides opportunity to lay flowers and visit at appropriate times.
Ashes are usually placed in the ground during a short service and although the Church Council made a decision not to use name plaques to mark the location of loved ones however granite stones can be placed in the ground as a personal marker.
Many people also choose to put shrubs or plants around the area around which their loved ones are placed.
The amount of time between a cremation and ashes being scattered is a very personal thing and is different in every situation. Usually it is done in the period between a month and a year following cremation but there are no hard and fast rules.
