Churches Together in Potters Bar

Many churches - one purpose

Who are we?

We are a fellowship of Christians of different denominations who join together to proclaim the Christian Gospel.

We organise joint events such as Town Carols, United Services of evening worship, a Christmas Day Lunch for people who would otherwise be alone, special services during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and the Good Friday Procession of Witness. We aim to encourage unity within the Christian Church.

Easter Dawn Service

This will be held on 1 April. Gather outside St Mary’s Church, The Walk, at 6am for a short outdoor service on the cricket field, followed by communion in the church. Refreshments in the Church Hall afterwards.

My first Churches Together meeting

I attended my second monthly churches together session. Yes! What is churches together? Just my thought I asked a few people in the congregation the question but they were unaware of what is was about.

I picked up a leaflet in my church, which said all are welcome, but still I thought it was for vicars, churchwardens or an appointed representative from each church.

Therefore, in September I had an urge to attend the one held at St Johns Methodist church where all warmly welcomed me.

Churches together is held once a month on a Saturday morning at one of the churches in Potters Bar listed in the leaflet, where Christians meet to prayer for various people and other things happening in our communing and where prayers is need.

Just an idea our churches could mention in the service notice sheet when churches together is due to meet with the other weekly events.

After saying all this, Our LORD guided me to attend I’m hopeful many more will follow.
