 WALKDEN CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH

 "The Church of the Warm Heart and the Open Mind"


 

A MEMBER CHURCH OF THE CONGREGATIONAL FEDERATION


A MEMBER CHURCH OF CHURCHES TOGETHER IN WALKDEN 


WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE                                                          OF WALKDEN CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH 

 

We are situated at the heart of the community, close to the crossroads  in the centre of town, between Walkden Gateway                                  and the Gill Medical Centre, opposite the Ellsemere Shopping Precinct.

 

As our Church Motto says, we seek to be                                            "a church with a warm heart and an open mind."

                                                             
Some years ago the Church Meeting resolved that these fine words should be more than just a motto and so applied to register our church for Same Sex Marriages. Confirmation that we are legally authorised to conduct same-sex marriages was confirmed on the 21st of December 2016.

We were the first mainstream Christian Church in the City of Salford to offer this ministry.


We believe that for the Gospel to truly be "Good News"                          it must be a gospel of

extravagant grace,

radical inclusion

and relentless compassion.                                                                            

To that end, we welcome people of all ages and backgrounds

and affirm that God`s love as revealed in Jesus Christ is for everyone and not just a chosen few.                                                                                                          You are welcome to join us for worship any Sunday morning at 11am and to get to know us better over a cup of tea or coffee and a chat.

A BLESSING


May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you,
wherever He may send you.
May He guide you through the wilderness,
protect you through the storm.
May He bring you home rejoicing
at the wonders He has shown you.
May He bring you home rejoicing
once again into our doors.


The Northumbia Community
