4th February 2021     Coffee Zoom


Online networking and faith discussion platform..

Today we had our first Coffee Zoom meeting, a brand new concept open to anyone to join. These session aim to be very relaxed for people to freely talk with eachother, a networking aspect which most of us have missed during the lockdowns; the focus is on sharing our own personal insights to our faith, with a cuppa in hand.

Additionally in these sessions we aim to reflect on topics of the moment, do they impact on our daily lives both postive and negative? People are free to share their views and opinions. We will also share and discuss biblical scripture and prayerfully meditate on any prayer requests submitted.

Although we will be temporarily pausing the sessions over Lent, we will introduce Coffee Zoom again after Easter once the online Lent courses have completed. 

The online zoom invitations will be published on the front page of our website as well as on our parish facebook group. These sesions are open to everyone. 

 

 

 

20th December 2020       Parish Christmas Toy Appeal


Local charitable community causes are important to us..

We believe as a traditional parish church that it is our responsibility to contribute to local charitible incentives.

We have therefore been collecting toys as part of this new parish appeal to donate to the Linden Road Children Centre and Wellspring Charity for those children who are not lucky enough to have a toy to open at Christmas.

We would like to thank everyone for generously donating toys to this appeal by delivering them to our chancel steps this morning.  It was short notice and we appreciate the efforts you have all made to make our first toy appeal a huge success. The donations will be delivered to the charity for distribution to the local community.

Our parish is looking forward to getting involved in further local charitable causes in the near future.

10th August 2019       Fr Jules Mambu's 25th Anniversary Celebration of Priesthood


Celebrating the sacred ministry of our parish priest with family and friends.. 

Today we enjoyed a celebratory mass in honour of Fr Jule's 25th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood. 

The church was completely full with guests from across the country who had come to attend this special occasion, followed by a party finger buffet, cake and wine in the undercroft after the service.

We were also honoured to be joined by the Manchester LACR team of change bell ringers who kindly volunteered to ring out our entire peel of bells across the parish. 

 

 

7th August 2019     Beer and Believing


Socialising and faith based outreach within the local community.. 

Today we launched the very first Beer and Believing event, an opportunity aimed at the guys in the parish. The aim of this event is to meet and socialise with some of our local community down the pub, whilst spending some quality time with our wonderful parish priest Fr Jules! 

We meet at The Chapel House on Stockport Road from 6.30pm onwards where you will find us chatting about church life, community, faith and mission.

15 gentlemen from different churches in Denton and even further beyond casually attended our first event at different stages throughout evening. This was a very relaxed affair and with an outlined agenda produced by Fr Jules we managed to chat with a couple of visitors about faith and the church. Due to the success of the event and the positive feedback received we plan to make this a monthly event in order to grow and develop our outreach opportunities in the local community.  

*This event is currently paused during the pandemic, however we intend to relaunch Beer and Believing in the future once local and national restrictions have eased.*
