What You Need To Know – Our Latest News (13th December 2021)

Here is your start-of-the-week newsletter. It should have all you need to know about what’s happening amongst us. And a quick look should mean you are updated each week.


What if Christmas isn’t like it’s portrayed in the songs? What if it’s more complicated, more disappointing, more disruptive?

We’re not the only ones to feel like this – it was like this on the first Christmas.

But there is hope…

Looking Ahead

Alpha Online

We will have another Alpha Course starting again on Monday 10th January. This will be an online course, so if you have friends or family who are not in Salford, they can still join in. For any who are still a bit confused and would love the chance to talk about the Christian faith, this is a great way of finding your feet. Find out more here.

Making Sense of the Bible

In January, Charlie will be starting a course that will help you make sense of the Bible. It will give you a chance to understand the big story, to see how different types of literature within the Bible make sense, and how to read the Bible for yourself so that you can hear God speaking into your own situation.
