Third annual Chester Pause for Hope service at St Columba’s Church, Plas Newton Lane, CH2 1SA, at 3pm. Bishop Mark Davies will lead the service. Pause for Hope has ten years experience of bringing together in prayer people affected by cancer in any way, to pray for themselves or their loved ones, their doctors and nurses and our scientists searching for the cure to cancer.

Although it is Father’s Day perhaps it is a good opportunity to pray for fathers with cancer or to remember fathers who have died from cancer.

The service aims to bring hope to those affected through music, special prayers, hymns and reflections as well as lighting of candles for personal intentions or in remembrance of a loved one lost to cancer. All are welcome and no tickets are required.
