Maghull Baptist Church closure


During the first week of August, Maghull Baptist Church are running a week long activities group for children.

This will mean that we will have no access to the church during that period.  There will be no Coffee morning on the 6th of August and the Table Tennis group will not be able to meet during that week.

All will be back to normal the following week.

Cyber Safety Talk 09.07.24

In this day and age, it’s almost impossible to have a life that doesn’t include the internet. This means there’s a whole world of scams and deceptions waiting to catch us out.  Thieves target people constantly with romance scams, banking scams, cat-fishing, delivery scams and more!

So, we have arranged for an expert in how to spot a scam and how to make our online world as safe as possible, to come and talk to us and he’ll be with us on the 9th July at 11:00 in the Church Sanctuary.

Dave Carlos was the Editor of a Computer Magazine in the 1980’s and has 40 years’ experience with machines of this kind. In his retirement he is currently a Cyber Volunteer for Lancashire Police

In this presentation Dave will cover the basics of Online Awareness and what changes you need to make to be more secure online.
Whether it’s Passwords, Cookies, Ransomware or social media, Dave will be happy to take your questions too.

We hope you will be able to attend this meeting, it could save you a lot of hassle one day.

Maghull Festival 15th June 2024

Saturday was Maghull Festival day; a day where the many organisations that support the people of Maghull and give them a chance to get involved were celebrated.
The Activities room was crammed with many stalls many of whom represented groups I had no idea were active in Maghull. Face painting, merry-go rounds, children’s entertainers, singers and the MaDukes supported the event.
And yes, we were there too.
Maghull and Lydiate u3a had our own stall promoting our own contribution to Maghull life.
Our thanks to to Margaret, Maureen C, Joan, Peter and Maureen B who brought samples of the work produced by their groups and also to Nigel, Irene, Pat and Lynne who helped man the stall.
