Churches Together in Castle Cary and Ansford
We are made up of the congregations of All Saints', St Andrew's and the Methodist Church together with the Catholic Parishioners of Castle Cary and Ansford worshipping at St Lukes Wincanton. We are affiliated to the Somerset Churches Together.
The Steering Group
This meets four times a year, and contains Clergy and Lay representatives from the four churches. The Chairman and Vice-Chairman each serve for two years.
Chairman: Nick Niven-Jenkins
Vice Chairman: Judith Cole
Secretary: David Osborne
Treasurer: Val Chainey
Our aim is to take opportunities to worship together and to enter into any activities that are better held jointly rather than individually. For example, by raising an annual sum of money for charity through our Lent Giving.
Churches Together has raised over £26,000.00 over the past few years for projects such as a new water well at an Aids clinic in Zambia.
We organise the Unity Supper to launch the Lenten appeal, the Good Friday Walk of Witness and a number of other Events and Services.
We have a Luncheon Club for Senior Citizens who live alone. This is on the first Monday in the month in the Methodist Hall. Contact: Audrey Rice 350510.
