Christians Working Together In Shanklin


Information

Seven local churches are working together to create a united witness in the community.  This formal arrangement was launched in January 2002 though the churches and leaders have been worshiping and working together for many years.

There is also a network of Churches on the Island, Wight Churches, with a website and information service, which serves the whole Christian community on the Isle of Wight.

Events and Activities

Informal Shared Worship

During the 'winter' season, September to May, at 19:00 most of the churches in Shanklin hold an informal worship, with each of the participating churches taking it in turns to host the service.

All are most welcome to join in these meetings where there is a growing depth of fellowship and prayer.


Easter

The Churches of Shanklin in recent years have joined together for three events at Easter.

- Lent meetings on a Tuesday lunchtime.

-  A Procession of Witness on Good Friday

 

- An Easter Sunday sunrise service on Hope Beach at around 06:00, depending when Easter is (see the pictures below from previous year's services).

Rylstone Gardens Open Air Praise

Usually from the penultimate Sunday in May until the last one in August, at 19:30, we have Praise and Worship in the open air every week on Sunday evening in Rylstone Gardens - a lovely inspiring setting for Christian worship.

The season of open air praise services starts each year on Pentecost Sunday and runs through to the end of August. Different groups take it in turns to lead the meetings and always attracts a good number of holiday visitors - if the weather isn't fair then we resort to meeting in one of Shanklin's Churches.

For details of where Rylstone Gardens are, see How To Find Us.


Alpha Course - 'Explore the meaning of Life'

Alpha courses are held periodically

This is a great means of introducing people to basic Christian beliefs.
