Diocese of Manchester

    Holy Trinity Church and Community Centre awarded £355k

    The award-winning People, Place and Presence project run from Holy Trinity Church in the Parish of the Good Shepherd, Ashton-under-Lyne, has been awarded another three-year grant worth £355,600 from the Big Lottery Fund. The project tackles deep-seated poverty and brings different ethnic groups together by providing a range of affordable service. It will deliver:

    • Learning opportunities in a deprived community with a focus on those most difficult to reach.
    • A cohesive community where people get on and get things done, and
    • An active community that has influence and control leading to action and change.

    People, Place and Presence was awarded a Church for a Different World award in 2017 by the Bishop of Manchester, Dr David Walker. The awards celebrate the inspirational and innovative work that is growing throughout the diocese.

    The Holy Trinity Church and Community Centre would like to thank all partners who have contributed to their success.
