Taking hold in our diocese – Jesus Shaped People
We are one of the first dioceses outside Yorkshire to take Jesus Shaped People (JSP) seriously. Jesus Shaped People is a whole church adventure that helps parishes identify the priorities that Jesus modelled in his ministry – and through living those priorities local churches are renewed in the image of Christ.

ABC church – for Adults, Babies and Children
St Lawrence, Stoak, near Ellesmere Port, has a thriving service specially created for families with young children.
