Welcome to Bolton Christian Community Cohesion

Bolton Christian Community Cohesion (BCCC) exists to inspire and encourage over 150 churches and Christian organisations across the borough to fulfill their potential to serve, and develop cohesion in, the Bolton community by:

  • Providing a forum/conferences for exchanging ideas for church engagement.

  • Signposting churches/organisations to the help and advice they may require.

  • Working in close partnership with Bolton Interfaith Council and other faith groups to promote awareness and understanding in order to break down barriers and bring greater tolerance. eg organising Interfaith events, Faith Trails, peace prayer events at times of tragedy/remembrance etc.

  • Encouraging Bolton churches, other Christian Organisations and other community groups/projects to engage with Bolton Vision Partnership’s Bolton 2030 Vision.

  • Supporting and organising events which bring people together.

  • Advertising church/community/interfaith events, training courses and job vacancies across Bolton via our bi-monthly email bulletin.

  • Producing and regularly updating a ‘signposting’ booklet for churches/groups to use.

  • Supporting chaplaincies across the Bolton area including workplace chaplaincies (particularly Bolton Town Centre Chaplaincy and Middlebrook Angels Retail Chaplaincy), University/college/school chaplaincies, sports chaplaincies and hospital chaplaincies.

  • Attending community organisations’ meetings and events to offer advice and support including Christians Together in Bolton Town Centre, Faith Forums, Bolton CVS (Community and Voluntary Service) Forums, church luncheon clubs etc.

 

Bishop Chris Edmondson – Former Bishop of Bolton:

We are pleased to endorse the work of the BCCC Projects on behalf of the Bolton Church Leader’s Forum. Bolton is a place where people from all backgrounds are genuinely valued and accepted. These fundamental values lie at the heart of all the major faiths. God sees the good which dwells within all of us.”
