Our key values
We hold four important values that shape everything that we do as a church.
  • Devotion - to God, His Word, His Ways
  • Family - loving and caring for those around us
  • Discipleship - learning to be like Jesus
  • Mission - serving those around us, sharing life with them
Our Vision
Our vision is: "To be and bring the Good News to Bury and beyond."
Prophetic promises
We believe that God has promised us all we need to achieve the vision He has placed before us.
  • Isaiah 60 underpins much that God has said to us.
  • In addition, over several years and in a number of ways God has promised a range of things including:
  • Three congregations, one church, one name
  • Fruitfulness and growth
  • A unique sound to our worship, one we will export....and much more...

Street Pastors in Bury

Street Pastors

We support the Bury Street Pastors initiative and a number of our people are personally involved. Street Pastors are Christians from local churches, all volunteers, who are trained to help and advise those who find themselves vulnerable. Street Pastors are on duty in Bury town centre each Friday and Saturday from 10:00pm to 3:00am. Street Pastor patrols have been curtailed during the current lockdown, however many of the team members have taken on other volunteer roles, including helping provide meals for anyone on need.
