Christians in Longlevens, Gloucester have recently been holding joint events, bringing their three congregations together to nurture better understanding and closer working across the community.

With the theme based on 'Reconciliation' Lonsdale Road Methodist Church welcomed the Curate of Longlevens Parish Church, the Revd Caroline Bland as guest preacher in a service led by Local Preacher Dave Bennett.

Whilst at Holy Trinity Parish Church, the vicar the Revd Gwyneth Gibbens greeted local Methodist Minister the Revd Andrew Biggs to their Parish Eucharist. Preaching to a 60-strong congregation Revd Biggs said, "We live at a time when barriers are being erected 'big time'. We are called to help people overcome barriers and be agents of reconciliation."

The following day a Churches Together lunch saw around 40 people from Kendal Road Baptist Church, Holy Trinity and Lonsdale Road come together at the Methodist Church Hall, where over £200 was donated to the Gloucester Foodbank.

Following two Prayer Walks and two Songs of Praise services, plus a Christmas Tree Fest, church leaders hope their ongoing partnership meetings will produce further opportunities to serve their local community.
