Find out what God is doing in Deane, here’s our latest news and things worth taking a look at.

Risen Motherhood

Risen Motherhood is a new group for mums of school aged children.

This is a community that will remind you of gospel-truth, no matter how you feel about your motherhood.  It’s for the imperfect mother, still learning, still growing and still fully recognising that she doesn’t have it all together, but, we serve a God who does.

Venue: Lostock Church Centre
Start date: Monday 10th September 2018
Time: 10:30am

Meeting every Monday morning during term time (unfortunately there will be no creche available).

For more information, or to express your interest, contact Sheri Taylor on 01204 659696 or

Calling all Superheroes!

This Halloween, you’re invited to Pumpkin Heroes – an exciting adventure sharing the light of God’s love around your community.  With lots of Bible-based hero-hunting, storytelling, craft-making, game-playing and pumpkin partying fun.

Please don’t wear Halloween costume to this party….come dressed as a superhero if you’d like to, otherwise just come as you are.

Places are limited so book your place early, by contacting Deane Church Office.


Bolton Lunches

Bolton Lunches is a project led by Urban Outreach and supported by lots of different partners and groups.  It was set up because over 8500 children are eligible for free school meals, which are not available during the school holidays.  Bolton Lunches aims to feed those who would normally have access to those school meals.

Any child of school age (primary or secondary) can come along to Deane Church Centre and collect a free packed lunch Monday – Friday (excluding bank holiday Monday) during the school holidays (22nd July – 30th August), between 11am and 12noon.

The packed lunches contain a choice of ham, tuna or cheese sandwich, a juice carton, cereal bar, small packet of cheese snacks and a piece of fruit.

There are a number of other collection points across Bolton too.  If you would like more information about the Bolton Lunches project get in touch with Urban Outreach.

Men’s Breakfast

The next men’s breakfast will take place on Saturday 14th September at the Toby Carvery – Watergate Toll just off M61 Jct 4 between 08:30 and 09:45.  Price including Full English Breakfast and endless hot drink refills will be £6 payable on the day.

The speaker is Reverend Gordon Craig.  Gordon is the current Chaplain to the UK Oil and Gas Industry and was appointed in Aug 2012.

He was ordained as a Church of Scotland Minister in 1988 and began a 24yr career as a RAF Chaplain in April of that year. As a RAF Chaplain he served far and wide on both front line and training establishments. His first posting was to RAF Marham in Norfolk, home of two Tornado squadrons and a Victor air to air refuelling squadron. His last tour was Principal of the Armed Forces Chaplaincy Centre, Amport House, which trains chaplains from all three Services and ‘soft skills’ to military personnel.

In between these tours Gordon served the length and breadth of the UK as well as Germany, the Falklands, Italy, the Middle East and Afghanistan. Gordon will be speaking about his work as a chaplain both in oil and gas and his time in the RAF.
