Groups: Churches Together

The Parish works ecumenically with fellow Christians in the local community and one way is through Churches Together. The group includes St Matthew's Lightcliffe, Christ Church, Hipperholme as well as St John the Baptist at Coley.

Activities include joint services, a prayer breakfast, a Good Friday walk of witness and frugal lunch, a women's day of prayer, a Lunch Club, working with Christians in Calderdale Schools (CICS). We present the community with a list of all the Church services available in the area at both Christmas and Easter.

At the beginning of Advent this year we meet with the community to light the Christmas tree at Hipperholme crossroads and include carols and prayers for this Christian Festival and gives a Christian witness in the village of Hipperholme.
