Churches Together

The churches in Pershore have always enjoyed a close relationship. Over 50 years ago there were times such as Harvest when the churches came together in joint worship. Before the Pershore Volunteer Centre was created there was cooperation in providing services to the community - for mums and toddlers, for transport to appointments or shopping, and even for gardening.

On June 12th 1984, after 2 years of prayerful discussion and preparation, this special relationship was made formal by the signing of a covenant between the Anglicans, Baptists and Roman Catholics.

Since that time, Churches Together in Pershore has been joined by the Community Church who, although not a signatory to the covenant, are considered to be part of Churches Together.

Covenant

We, the Anglican, Baptist and Roman Catholic Churches of Pershore confess our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour according to the scriptures, and acknowledge our calling to serve him in the world.

We believe that it is the will of God that there should be a united Christian Church, and that we should not do apart what we can usefully do together. Therefore, we believe that by entering into solemn covenant with each other to share our life as fully as we can, we are seeking God’s will.

We rejoice in the rich variety of our different Christian traditions, and seek to share them with each other as far as possible. 

We pray that in this venture of faith the Holy Spirit will guide and lead us into deeper unity.

Food Bank

In 2014 the churches came together to start a Foodbank, (Trussell Trust) which continues to be a community led venture, where food is donated and many families are supported.
