Here are some other things happening across the week at Broughton Church
About five years ago, Broughton Church saw an opportunity to serve the local community by starting the charity, 'Broughton Community Action' and refurbished a retail unit on Parton Road. 'more+' serves as our community hub, it's run by volunteers from the church and local area and we hope it will be a place that not only runs a great coffee shop, but provides space for local groups to meet, connect and build relationship.
In 2016, we began work on refurbishing our narrowboat "Beacon+" and we have recently been able to start to use it to continue living out our purpose, to see lives changed. We've been able to offer it for retreat days; we're taking out groups from the local junior school and we've taken it on tours around the inland waterways as a church.
We host a number of different smaller gatherings through the week that we call 'Life Groups'. It's about groups of people coming together to help build community and connection based around a shared interest. Usually these groups meet for a term and then we refresh them. Come along on Sunday to find out more about them!
