Churches Together in Castle Cary and Ansford

This comprises congregations of All Saints', St Andrew's, and the Methodist Church with the Roman Catholic congregation worshipping at St Andrew's. Together we are affiliated to the Somerset Churches Together.

Committee

The Commitee meets four times a year, and contains Clergy and Lay representatives from the four churches. The Chairman and Vice-Chairman each serve for one year, and rotate annually.
2013 - 2014
Chairman: Judith Cole
Vice Chairman: Sandie Biles
Secretary: Canon Frank Fisher
Treasurer: Val Chainey

Activities

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.
