Salford Van Collections resume

Our next Salford van collection is on Sunday 14th November. Please leave any donations of bedding, warm clothing and small household items for collection from behind the Assembly Rooms on Cecil Road on the morning of collection only please. Donations need to be in good condition, and if it is raining it would be helpful if you could protect them from getting wet. The Salford van people will collect before 1pm. Thank you.


Messy Church

Messy Church is a fresh way of ‘doing church’ through crafts, stories, songs and fun challenges – and it’s now happening ‘live’ once a month in St Peter’s House. There’s something for the family to do together, and it promises to make Bible stories and teachings more memorable in an interactive way. If you would like to find out more, please email our Children & Youth Minister Melissa  at

Pastoral care: helpers wanted

When illness or infirmity stops members of our church family from joining us at our services, they don’t get forgotten. We have a friendly team of volunteer pastoral visitors who in normal times will call in to say hello, and can arrange for home communion to be distributed.  Until such time as we can all visit each other’s homes again, we are keeping in touch by telephone. We are always looking for new members to join us and are looking to appoint a new co-ordinator.
