Heatons Churches Partnership - together in Mission and Service
This informal partnership for churches in the Heatons works together to further the mission of Christ in the communities they serve. They commit to pray together on a regular basis through the prayer breakfasts and endeavour to hold monthly sharing and planning meetings for ministers and lay leaders. They endeavour to build links with the community and support each other's activities and work together on projects they cannot do alone.
Although Ivy Manchester is not located in the Heaton's area, many people who attend Ivy also contribute in various ways to the work in the Heaton's area and as part of our vision to be a 'Going' Church, Jane and Pete Edwards now go to Heaton Mersey Methodist on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Jane leads a worship service for 0 to 7 year olds called "Little Fishes". Pete provides the music for this as well as the main service that follows it.
Go to www.heatons-churches.org.uk for more information on the Churches in the Heaton's or speak to Pete Edwards concerning ways of getting involved.

The Alpha Course
‘It was a great honour’, says Nicky Gumbel
After returning from Rome, Nicky Gumbel said:
‘ It was a great honour to be presented to Pope John Paul II, who has done so much to promote evangelisation around the world. We have been enormously enriched by our interaction with Catholics in many countries.
It is a great privilege to meet inspiring leaders from different parts of the church – Catholic, Baptist, Salvation Army, Pentecostal, Lutheran, Methodist, and so many more – and discover that what unites us is infinitely greater than what divides us.
As Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa has pointed out, the battle today is similar to that of the first century. The battle is around the King: Is Jesus a Universal Saviour, or just one among many? Thus, on the crucial issue of our day, we can be united and proclaim this Jesus to a desperately needy world.’
