Churches Together in Bury


- part of the Greater Manchester Churches Together

with enthusiam to share the love of Jesus across our communities


Do you have an interest in simple drama? Or maybe a desire to share Bible
stories with children?
The Bible Society has a programme to enable local Churches to get together
to present bible stories to children in School assemblies. This is done through
a narrated story, acted out by a small group. Bury churches together
has
agreed to try and get a group together to start this initiative here.There will be

a meeting in the Ashton room, of Church house, at Bury Parish church, on
Tuesday 26th June at 7.30pm for anyone interested in
finding out more. The
group will go into primary Schools to lead assemblies,
so volunteers will need to be available
in the day time, but also
needed are costume makers and prop makers. The aim will be to get
into as many
local Schools as possible.


There will be a prayer meeting to pray for the future of CAP in our area on
16
th June at 10.30 in St Andrew’s Vicarage Radcliiffe. Do come along, or
pray privately. Unfortunately the Centre which has run successfully in our
area has closed.  Between us could we commit time, funding, premises to
fulfil an important need? 
Debt Centres, Job Clubs, Life Skills Courses and
Freedom Groups all make an enormous difference to people's lives.

Care Home Friends

Bury Churches Together are looking to set up groups to visit those in residential homes who have no visitors.  If you can chat, read, do crosswords - simply spend some time with someone overlooked by society please contact the clergy for more details.  Training and support will be offered for volunteers. Download this leaflet to read more about the scheme.


Christ Church has long been involved in an ecumenical group of churches based around the Walmersley Road area. In recent years this grouping has joined with other churches to form Churches Together in Bury.

Currently the group is chaired by David Andrew,  of St John with St Mark. 

You would be most welcome at any of our meetings.  See the calendar for details. The latest GMCT newsletter is here.

 

Joint services are held to mark the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in January and One World Week in October. During Lent there are joint study groups and on Good Friday a Walk of Witness (see Events for details)
