Recent events

In July a number of people went to the Transform camp in Worcestershire

The theme of the week was:-

 I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes Rom 1:16


In early July we were able to gather for a prayer and worship night at church which is something we committed to do more frequently back in January. This followed on from a previous Sunday night meeting and the Saturday morning prayer at Eccles Pike.

Writing on walls

We sung together and then had chance to go to different activities. As the building is physically prepared for continued Kingdom work, prayers were written on the walls to declare God’s presence and purpose for the future and faithfulness for the past.







Whaley Water Weekend

Churches Together took part with Jugalubs the Clown and No Strings Puppets from Altrincham.

Since Easter we have been looking at Jesus appearances after the resurrection and the Acts of the Apostles.

Here are pictures from when we looked at the disciples fishing and catching 153 fish and when Jesus made them breakfast on the shore.
