We are currently working to transform a 19th-century church in Bolton into a state-of-the-art facility providing training, education, youth activities, and health and welfare services to the local community.

How to help

As a charity we rely heavily on the support of volunteers and donations. Every year, we need to raise an additional £1.5million just to carry out essential repair work.

Find out how you can help by selecting one of the options below.

Donate by text

Last year, we welcomed over two million visitors to our churches. If each person donated just £2, this would enable us to keep our churches open, safe and watertight for you and future generations to enjoy.
