Good News Church is a group of about 35 people who believe in the Good News of Jesus. We are of all ages and live across the High Peak area and worship together in Whaley Bridge.
Good News Church was formerly known as Gospel Hall and was established c 1919,.
The church has met at the current premises since 1937, which we believe were originally built as an independent Methodist Chapel in 1871, then becoming a Liberal Club known as Partington Hall, before Gospel Hall in 1937.
We meet together on Sundays and try to have something for everyone, generally worshipping together with a mix of ages. Our time together includes God's word being read and shared, praise and worship, fellowship, discussion, music, dramas, maybe a video clip.... We share communion monthly in the morning service and there is an evening communion and healing service once a month.
As Christians we believe everyone is made in God's image and he invites us all to have a relationship with him, through Christ Jesus.
We are part of the Whaley Bridge Open the Book team - taking assemblies in local primary schools.
Good News Church is a Fairtrade Church

We are an independent church and part of the Synergy family of churches and a member church of the Evangelical Alliance.
Locally our church is part of Churches Together Whaley Bridge where we work together with other Christians in the town. We are involved in the local community through a series of events which we do together as churches each year, including joint services, lent groups and family activities.
