The Well Community Church

Community Projects

As Christians, we have a God-given desire to serve other people in our community, particularly those who need some help to cope with life's issues.

We've been working with a small group of Iranian asylum seekers in the last couple of years, all of whom have become Christians, and most have been given permission to remain in the UK. They cannot return to Iran and they miss their families a lot. So we do what we can to fill that gap. Love and kindness goes further than money!

Of course, God always has a much bigger picture of who that is than we do, so although there are people we serve and get alongside in Rochdale  , there are also others we serve in other countries, and for that we need to work with other organisations in order to be most effective.

For instance, we are committed to helping some families, particularly widows and orphans in a town called Mbeya in the south of Tanzania, in Africa. They have many problems with malaria and aids, and are very poor. Even the little we can do helps a lot. We work alongside a Christian charity called Grassroots to do this. - we have "Coppers for Kids" boxes that allow our children to put their contributions in. You can help by sponsoring a primary school child for £3.50 a month. Call us!!

We have some other people we help in Medellin in Colombia, South America. They are in the middle of on-going civil war and gang warfare, again leaving many women and children without much food or money and no education. We support "Familia en Accion" creating employment for the mums and education for the children in a little village called Alta Vista on the outskirts of Medellin. 

As part of our committment to work closely with the whole community, both secular, Christian, and other faiths, we are members of FAITHWORKS, whose charter defines the way we have chosen to interact with our community.

Opening times

Jesus called his followers 'friends'. What do friends do? They enjoy getting together, sharing life's ups and downs together, and having fun together.

So that's what we do too, because Jesus is our friend!

We can be found on a Sunday morning (just because that's the most useful time for our family group)

at 144 Drake Street (in the Lib Dem HQ - go upstairs from the side door - you will get a  cuppa and a warm welcome!)

at 10.30am

We meet at other times and other places but you need to call us on 01706 522443 to find out more!

When we meet we worship, meet with God, have some fun, chat to each other, pray for each other, then go home.
