A Listening Ear
Do you need, or would you like, to talk to a caring listener on any subject? It can help to talk things over with a sympathetic listener.
Any member of church, young or not so young, friend or family member is more than welcome to avail themselves of these confidential listening sessions.
Please contact Ann Smith, (0161-487 1838). If you get my answer phone please give your name and telephone number and I will get back to you as soon as I can. You could also speak to me personally at church on Saturday or Sunday mornings.

Norbury Archives and History
As a result of organising the recent Norbury exhibition, Marjorie Potts acts as Archivist for Norbury Parish Church, and receives, collates and looks after old photographs and other memorabilia offered to the church. Graeme, meanwhile, has updated the Norbury History which is now available for £3.
Has someone you're used to seeing at church been missing for a while? Or would you like a visit yourself? If so, please inform the pastoral care team (0161-487 2538).
Do You Visit the Churchyard?
A welcome awaits you inside the Church. Join us for:
- A refreshing cup of coffee
- A friendly chat
- Quiet reflection
The church is open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 10.30am-12.30pm, Saturdays 9.30am-11.00am (not during August).
Book of Remembrance
Norbury's Book of Remembrance can be seen through the window near the main door of the church, even when the church is locked. The names recorded in it will appear once a year on the anniversary of the person's death. The cost is £50 for the first ten years, after which the arrangement can be renewed for a further 10 years.
If you would like your loved one to be remembered in this way, please pick up an application form from the back of church, or contact Elizabeth at the church office (0161-483 6325).
Securing Memorials In The Churchyard
We want to make the churchyard as safe an environment as possible for everyone. We have identified a number of memorials that are unsafe. It is important that these memorials are made secure as soon as possible. Stockport Council is securing these memorials with stakes and clamps as a temporary measure.
In some cases we do not have the name of anyone to contact about these memorials. In other cases those concerned about a particular unsafe memorial have agreed to arrange for the work to be done, but the memorial still has to be made safe until the work is done.
