How Oldhams Church Bolton is dealing with #COVID19 Lockdown

Oldhams Church Bolton is part of Antioch Network Manchester, and at this time of COVID19 Lockdown, we are taking our meetings online using “Zoom” video conference call technology. If you would like to join us for one of our online gatherings, then please email [email protected] but the meeting times generally mirror what we normally do when we can physically meet together.

Additionally, because we cannot meet in person both Oldhams Church Bolton and Antioch Network Manchester have dedicated YouTube channels with extra prayer and teaching content. If you would like to see some of this content, then here are the links below:

Our Story

There is a council estate in Bolton called Oldhams estate. In 2014 a small group of people, part of the local parish church; St Paul’s Astley Bridge, began to pray and dream about how they could plant church within Oldhams estate. In January 2016, after much prayerful waiting, Sunday worship started.

More on Oldhams Church

Oldhams Church is a community of Jesus’ followers. We are seeking to become better followers of Jesus, better at sharing him with our friends and neighbours and better at being his family.

Oldhams Church is made up of many different people, some who have been Christians for many years, some for just a few weeks and some who are yet to call themselves Christian.

On Sundays we gather at 3.00pm at the Barlow Park Centre, BL1 7NT on Oldhams estate. The meeting lasts just over an hour. There are songs, prayer, brews, treats and learning from the Bible.

Throughout the week we do many things as a church family (to find out more you’ll need to come along on a Sunday!) These include; Football training, open house food, all age / all ability Bible Study, Celebrate Recovery 12-step group.

What people say

Jenny says,

“I was in a dark, lonely place for many years, and alcohol had destroyed my faith, hope and was destroying me and my family. In 2017 I found Oldhams Church and my relationship with Jesus. I haven't touched a drop of alcohol since. A true miracle from God”

John says,

“Since being part of church I’ve got people I can rely on, they are my family. Jesus has done that for me and he’s been there even when I haven’t known him.”
