About Us

We have a dedicated team at Bolton Christian Community Cohesion.

Our management team is made up of representatives from a range of churches and other organisations in the Bolton area:

Phil Mason (our chair – BWFC Club Chaplain),

Chris Bracegirdle (Vicar of Bolton Parish C of E Church),

John Walsh (Bolton Council),

Kevin Flanagan (GMIM – Greater Manchester Industrial Mission, our umbrella charity),

David Tomlinson (Bolton Methodist Mission, Victoria Hall & GMIM),

Liliane Westwood (Salvation Army, Bolton Citadel),

Phil Glanvill (Bolton Methodist Mission & Emmaus)

We have 2 members of staff, Keith Armstrong, Project Manager (who also co-ordinates Bolton Town Centre/Middlebrook Chaplaincies) and Janet Lythgoe, our administrator.

Greater Manchester Industrial Mission partner with Bolton Christian Community Cohesion by providing support in Finance, Human Resources, Training and Legal work.  The GMIM work with Chaplaincies across the North West enables learning and best practices to develop.

We are involved in a series of consultations across Bolton based on key themes with the Bolton Vision Partnership’s Bolton 2030 Vision. Over the last 3 years, in partnership with the ‘Passion Bolton 2030 Vision’ steering team we have organised many conferences, (on the themes of ‘Starting Well’, Living Well’, and ‘Ageing Well’) and Bolton Church Leaders’ meetings during which we have shared good practice across Bolton and it’s boroughs and offered support to church leaders and leaders of Christian organisations in the Bolton area.
