Brinnington Church Plant (video above): Rev Andy Williams was appointed to Brinnington both as vicar to St Luke’s church and with the additional challenge of planting a new church in the parish. Brinnington sits in the top half of one percent of the most deprived parishes in the country. It’s a welcoming place but it needs people who will commit to bring the transforming life of the gospel to its streets. The Church is now seeking to recruit the core team of the new church plant.
