Fundraising.
Money from fundraising activities at St Andrew's is usually divided between four charities.
For many years we have been supporting John and Sharon Harbottle's work in Haiti and Urban Outreach in Bolton, in conjunction with the "Grub Tub". 
The other two charities usually change annually. This  year we are fundraising for the (Multiple Sclerosis ) MS Society, and Bolton Dementia Support Group.

Messy Church.
A warm and messy welcome awaits you at Messy Church. We meet in the hall at St Andrew's on the second Saturday of the month, starting at 3.30pm.
It is an all-age activity,using mess,crafts and fun to explore Bible stories and learn more about God.
Tea is included and we finish around 5.30pm.
Messy church is an activity for families and all under 16s must be accompanied by an adult who remains responsible for them during the entire afternoon.
