We also have a growing creche of babies and pre school children.
A very bright and engaging youth group now forms part of our ministry to young adults.
Once a month we have a family service which involves all ages
A Heart for Shaw
As our church is situated right in the centre of Shaw, we want to be part of the already thriving community in the town centre.
We were a collection point for refreshments for the firefighters who tackled the Saddleworth Moor fires in the Summer and were pleased to be part of the community celebrations for the switch on of the Shaw Christmas Lights.
The men get together for breakfast, socials and occasionally weekend conferences.
Our Ladies meet each week at the church, for Bible study, sharing and prayer. We have also had day conferences with speakers, fellowship and a shared lunch of fish and chips.
More events are planned for the future.
We have links with LifeLink International who are assisting a church in Craiova, in South West Romania. They hope to build a church for the mixed Romanian and Romany Gypsy congregation.
Dave, Alan and Walter visited the church, the Pastor and his family in 2018 and hope to help fundraise as they have the plans drawn for the new building
