Arnside Churches Together -ACT

The formation of Arnside Churches Together has helped to foster much stronger ecumenical links. Joint services are held on special Sundays such as Remembrance Sunday and Mothering Sunday and Pentecost. During the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, services are held in each of the three churches in the village and the Women’s World Day of Prayer  is celebrated each year in each church on a rota basis. In recent years, the Anglican Church has joined us for our Annual Covenant Service
