Churches Together in Padgate and Woolston
This ecumenical parnership was formed twenty five years ago in an attempt to forge closer links between the Anglican, Roman Catholic and Methodist communities in the neighbouring parishes of Padgate and Woolston. The clergy and representatives of their respective congregations meet regularly and many joint ventures are undertaken. To mark the millennium a team of ladies designed and made a banner which is kept in each of the churches in turn. A "welcome" booklet was published listing all essential telephone contact numbers, a copy of which is given to newcomers to the district. At present this is being updated for re-issue later in the year.
Together with the Church of the Ascension, Woolston and Christ Church, Padgate, the following four make up Churches Together in Padgate and Woolston.
