COUNCIL OF CHURCHES

Barrow-upon-Soar Council of Churches was formed during 1967 with one of its objectives being to enable the village churches to bear a more united witness in the Community and serve it more effectively.

Ministerial and lay representatives of the member churches meet together regularly. As a result of these meetings various annual events have been held: the Week-of-Prayer meeting in January, Lent meetings, the Good Friday meeting and services, as well as various one-off events.

The first of îWho Goes├ was a joint venture between the participating churches and the Community Association as each was thinking of providing similar details about its member groups for general publication with the particular aim of giving newcomers to the village ready access to information which would enable them to quickly feel part of the community.

Thanks are again due to Barrow-upon-Soar Community Association for providing the finance required for this venture and to the Warden and Humphrey Perkins High School Community Centre team for the editing and printing.
