Lancashire South Missional Partnership

Back to ‘Church Links’

Fulwood URC is part of the Central Lancashire Group Pastorate which was inaugurated at a service held in Kirkham URC on 11th January 2015 when the joint constitution was signed by the Church Secretaries. 

The group consists of Fulwood URC, Kirkham URC, Leyland URC and Penwortham URC.  Rev Dave Coaker is Minister for Leyland & Penwortham but Fulwood & Kirkham are currently in vacancy.  Each Church has it’s own group of Elders which meet on a regular basis and a joint Elders meeting is held quarterly.  Joint Pastorate services are held twice a year. 

The Pastorate also has a joint Worship Team made up of the serving Ministers, retired Ministers, Lay Preachers, Worship Groups & Pulpit Supply Secretaries.  This team meet quarterly to discuss the Pastorate Preaching calendar, forthcoming special services and to share ideas.

The Church newsletters are exchanged so that members of the congregations are aware of, and can attend, events at other churches.
