Five congregations from our area form “Churches Together”:
Together we plan and share services during Lent and at other times of the year. In worshipping and celebrating together we hope to learn from our different Christian traditions and to deepen our faith.
We are currently preparing our programme for 2020, but please see below for examples of events we have held in the recent past.
