The Sharakat Project – Based at St Paul’s, Manningham – we offer a safe place to meet and build quality relationships. Activities include English classes, help for Asylum seekers, Drop in Cafe for the hungry, cross cultural cooking and craft classes.
Maryam Project – Based at St Philip’s, Girlington – this long running project continues to offer English lessons to large numbers of our neighbours from South-East Asia. Relationships are improved with a weekly craft and chat session. Recently we’ve welcomed Solidaritech – an IT initiative to recondition old devices to be fit for use, particularly for Asylum seekers.
Please Pray:
We seek to value our Parish’s vulnerable people – this is an area of great social deprivation. We don’t want to only provide a service but to demonstrate by open Church buildings something of what it means to follow Jesus. Please pray as we re-evaluate all we do to be sure that we proclaim the Gospel as well as continue our service. Pray for wisdom about what is sustainable in this time of increasing cuts.

Heaton Hub – Based at St Martin’s, Heaton – the council library now operates from within the church. We’ve built other activities around this community resource. Mum’s and Tots, Place of Welcome, School visits and Summer events for Children
Mustard Seed – Based at St Barnabas, Heaton
Activities include a Mum’s and Toddlers session, Drop in lunch and seated Aerobics for older people.
