World & Neighbourhood Issues
Our church is committed to serving our community, being a good neighbour to those in need locally, nationally and internationally, and fighting injustice. We offer a variety of ministries that serve different ages and needs, working in partnership with the other churches in the village. We have close links with other churches, and together are seeking to serve the people of Bramhall and the surrounding area.
We are committed to working with all ages, and the variety of organisations which we support and activities which we provide reflect this diversity. Our World and Neighbourhood Team are seeking to join up these diverse activities, and enable us to continue to place service at the heart of our church life.
We recognise that as a church and as individuals we have been blessed with many wonderful resources. An important part of our ministry is in raising funds for many different organisations locally, nationally and world-wide.
Our Thrift Shop has been operating for over 25 years, and through the dedicated efforts of an army of volunteers, offers a friendly welcome to the community. This resource has raised a considerable amount of money for good causes throughout the years, last year donating over £20,000 to charitable work.
Our monthly communion collections provide us with an opportunity as a church to learn more about a specific cause and then to donate to it. These offerings, alongside special donations from our Christmas and Easter services similarly enable us to support a large number of good causes.
Local, national and international organisations
We support a large number of organisations both locally and across the world, and provide ways for individuals to give of their time in supporting different groups. Many of those opportunities to offer time and resources in God’s service are outlined on our website – please contact the Church Office if you would like more information or to find out how to help support these activities.
