Places of Worship in the Parish

School Worship- Every Thursday, a member of our Ministry and Mission team comes into school to deliver a faith filled, fun assembly to the juniors and infants.

Big Club

On Thursdays, Year 6 pupils are offered the opportunity to attend Big Club. Led by parents, they learn more about God through  fun and sometimes messy games,  group discussions, video clips, interactive prayer stations and much much more. We also think about how our faith can help with the transition to secondary school.


Underground is our Friday night (7pm to 9pm at the Parish Centre) youth group for year groups 7-10. Each year we welcome Y6 children from Easter onwards and it is always good to see  a large group of  BCS children attending.  Amongst the fun, competitions and the fiendish games, there's always a serious topic to engage in each week, helping young people develop a moral compass underpinned with a Christian faith.  It is also a good way for the children to continue the friendships that they have when they go to different secondary schools.

Please contact us on   or by calling the parish office on 0161 929 1537 if you would like more information.
