Churches WE HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH

We have informal fellowship with multiple independent Baptist / free Bible churches across our local area (North Staffordshire and South Cheshire) and the UK.  These churches partner with us in a shared vision for the preaching of The Word, in the proclamation of the gospel to the lost and, in some instances, in the training of pastors via the Theological College of North Staffordshire (TCNS).  Please check out their websites for further details of their ministries and activities in Gospel ministry.  


We are also a member of the North Staffordshire Fellowship of Evangelical Churches (NoSFEC) - an informal fellowship of independent Bible churches in North Staffordshire and South Cheshire.  To find out more please visit their website (the link for this is www.nosfec.org.uk/index.html).
