Spring Harvest Ashton

Thursday 19 September 2019 7:30 pm – St Thomas, Ashton-in-Makerfield
Gather together for an evening of heartfelt worship, inspiring teaching and an opportunity to pray for the empowering of the Holy Spirit. The book of Acts tells the story of a small group of apprehensive disciples who found themselves UNLEASHED by the Spirit to go global and lead the new church of Jesus followers. We are the diverse and glorious Acts church today – if we grasp that and unleash its potential, life will never be the same.
Tickets priced in advance for £8 (£6 unwaged) or £10/£8 on the door are now available at https://springharvest.org/local/

Bishop Bev’s Easter message

Bishop Bev has written an excellent short piece for church magazines which you can read here.

Fairtrade stall

Our next Fairtrade stall will take place in the church hall after the 10.45 service on Sunday 17th February. You can make a real difference to people’s lives by buying some food or gifts. Please try and support this worthwhile cause even if you only purchase one item. If you buy any fair trade goods from our stall, rather from the supermarkets, then you are helping to support Traidcraft who reinvest their profits into the communities of their producers. You can find out more about our support of Fairtrade on our web page.

Alpha Course

Everyone has questions

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; wherever they are in the world.

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. There are ten in total and a day away. Each session covers a different question that people might have about faith. The sessions are designed to create conversation – there’s no pressure or charge; it’s just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.

Here are the details of our next three Alpha Courses:
