The churches in Woodbridge and Melton work together to serve our community in many ways. A committee made up of like minded Christians representing their churches meets four times a year to pray, share and plan ways to reach out to our community both practically and evangelically. We believe that mission begins with active witness, trying to make a difference in God's name, as well as being accessible for the spiritual wellbeing of the people.
We hold joint services both in our churches and in the open air, being asked by the Town Council and others to take a lead in public events.Churches Together led, a service in Elmhurst Park to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and a Thanksgiving Service to bring the Woodbridge Regatta to a close. We have a lead for many years at the annual Carol Service on Market Hill. We hold a Walk of Witness on Good Friday and an Easter Morning sunrise service on the River Wall.
Initiatives introduced by CTWM include Woodbridge Town Pastors, Healing on the Streets, Open the Book assemblies in the schools, Credit Union, Food Parcels, Lent Lunches and collecting for Christian Aid. Woodbridge Town Pastors won the local award for Charity of the Year for 2012, and in 2007 & 2011 we staged a full scale Passion Play in the open air on Good Friday. We send every household a Christmas Card signed by all the church leaders, including details of all our Christmas services and designed by a pupil from one of our local schools.
With the revival of the Woodbridge Carnival last year, Churches Together were excited to have another opportunity to pool our talents and resources and joyfully share God’s love in our community.
