What does it do?
It runs Bourne Foodbank (see separate page on this website for more details or visit www.bournefoodbank.org.uk)
Churches Together in Bourne also organise a series of interdenominational events including a series of Lent Lunches each year, the Good Friday Walk of Witness and services.
There was a good turnout for the Service to mark the Week for Christian Unity held at the United Reformed Church on Sunday, January 22. The service involved members from churches including the United Reformed Church, the Salvation Army and Baptist Church. Captain Wendy Brown gave the address, based on breaking down walls and barriers.
