The Church of the Nazarene is an international Church and therefore we think globally about missions and the call of Christ to Go and share the Good News.

CHRISTMAS HAMPERS FOR BOLTON’S EMERGENCY SERVICES.
This morning 26th of November we collected 14 huge hampers from Emma Parkinson at Morrison’s Atlas Mills Bolton to give to the emergency services and for families in need across the borough, we are so thankful to Emma and Morrisons for their donation and this will go such a long way to feeding those we want to honour and those in need this winter.
This year as a way of showing our thanks, love and appreciation to our hard working Emergency Service workers across Bolton we have decided as a church and local charity to put together 14 hampers full of festive goodies and treats that we can deliver to the Police Stations, Fire Stations, Ambulance Stations and the local hospital here in Bolton to show our emergency service workers that we really do appreciate and are very thankful for all they do to care for, support and protect our community of Bolton. Therefore we are asking for donations for the hampers from members of the community here in Bolton. We are looking for things such as tea, coffee, biscuits, sweets, chocolate, hot chocolate, festive treats and goodies etc. You can deliver your donations directly to the church on a Wednesday between 10am and 3pm or we can arrange to pick them up if so needed. The address for the church is Brownlow Fold Church of the Nazarene, Yarrow Place, Bolton, BL1 3UR. Or you can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us directly via Facebook Messenger. Thank you in advance for joining with us and supporting us to bless our emergency service workers in Bolton this Christmas.
On a monthly basis we go out into the Community to do good works, to love our neighbours and we care for the community around us, if you would like to join us just drop us an email.
Hampers for the Community
We believe no family should go hungry and to that end we have partnered with Morrisons and other Supermarket’s in giving out food hampers to those in need. We are truly thankful to all those who partner with us and make this possible, so that we can feed those in need this year.
Our Community Garden Mission project is under development, but we are working hard to make this a space that is in use by the New Year. This is a space where we can host outdoor events, with our huge bbq’s and grow veg and flowers and this space is specifically to be a space of mental wellbeing. We are looking forward to making this a place that is a little oasis and a garden of peace in our community.
Spaces of Hope
More information will be shared about this Ministry soon, but in short this is a Ministry that is localised around Thomasson Park and making it a place of Hope in the Community, with the hope of making this a project that can be rolled out across parks around the Bolton Borough.
