Day 11Oldham & Saddleworth Circuit
Oldham and Saddleworth circuit is made up of 10 churches and the Salt Cellar Cafe/Resource Centre. The circuit is diverse in its make-up and theology ranging from smaller traditional style churches to larger charismatic/evangelical churches. All the churches are exploring ways to expand their reach into the local communities and to be relevant, good news-centred congregations equipped for the present age.
The Salt Cellar is based at the heart of the town centre and houses a cafe/restaurant, a CAP debt coach, a youth project that provides weekly activities on site and in local secondary schools, a weekly midweek service as well as premises used by other churches and organisations including Ark - a support charity helping unemployed, homeless and people in general financial difficulty.
