Our partners are: the Parishes of Holy Trinity, Widdrington, St John's, Ulgham; Widdrington Methodists, who meet at Widdrington Community Centre; St Joseph's RC church.

Things we do together:

*  Christian Aid: Christian Aid Week Service. A  different congregation hosts each year. Details about the 2017 service coming soon.

We no longer have a house to house Christian Aid collection. However, the May Widdrington Day is a Christian Aid event to which Churches Together are invited.

The Big Sing in December: Organized by Widdrington Methodists in the Community Centre. The local first school do their own Big Sing

*Christmas: a leaflet with details of Christmas Services in all the churches is distributed round  the villages. Everyone as welcome at all services.

Lent and Easter: details of Lent and Easter activities in 2017 will be published shortly.

New for 2017: Week of Prayer for Christian Unity: 

There will be a programme of daily services during the week, hosted by each church in turn, and at various times, and a united service on Sunday 22nd January in St Joseph's RC church at 10.30am

Fund raising:

* A sponsored walk between St John's and Holy Trinity with strawberry tea and Songs of Praise. This usually takes place in June, and raises money for local good causes. Details for 2017 will be published soon.

Everyone is very welcome.
