What are people in our church saying…

“We generally attend Church in Stanton by Dale, but our Home Group is in Risley, giving us connections across the whole Benefice. The group is quite informal, always starting with coffee and a catch up followed by a discussion about the last teaching in Church, the lead is often shared between group members. The Home Group is a great way to meet with friends, new people and with God.”

Glynn and Elaine

“We really value youth work and our young people in the Benefice. ‘Heroes’ and ‘Impact’ are great places for asking questions and working through what it means to live for Jesus as a younger person in the 21st century.”

Phil Selby

“I enjoy acting out the Bible stories and doing the craft at JAM Club. The leaders are lovely!”
