Churches in Paulton (CHIP)
For many years the three local churches have endeavoured to support the local community as well as those further afield.
On Good Friday we meet every year outside the local supermarket to listen to God’s word, pray, and sing hymns remembering our Lord’s sacrifice for us on the cross. This shows the people of Paulton what a special day it is in our Christian calendar.
Every Spring, during Christian aid week, collectors from our churches stand outside the local shops, thus giving us an excellent chance to have conversations as well as collect donations.
A popular quiz night is also held with many teams taking part. Over the years thousands of pounds has been raised. Every summer, CHIP presents illustrated children’s bibles to the three reception classes at Paulton infants. This has been done since 1997, so imaging how many bibles are out there!
The Year 6 children also receive a Scripture Union booklet, It’s your move, to help them cope with the transition to senior school. Each church makes a donation to CHIP annually to cover the costs.
Please pray for these initiatives as we reach out to our community.
