Churches Together for Chipping Barnet:  "No longer strangers but pilgrims"

Churches Together for Chipping Barnet unites in pilgrimage those churches in Chipping Barnet which, acknowledging God's revelation in Christ, confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the Scriptures and, in obedience to God's will and in the power for the Holy Spirit, commit themselves:

  • to seek a deepening of their communion with Christ with one another in the Church, which is his body
  • to fulfil their mission to proclaim the Gospel by common witness and service in the world

St John the Baptist together with the other three churches in the Chipping Barnet Team Parish are members of Churches Together for Chipping Barnet, along with the other Anglican churches in Chipping and High Barnet, the Roman Catholic church, the Methodists, the Underhill Baptists and the United Reformed Churches. Clergy and lay representatives meet in Council to plan services and activities that will bear witness to our common aims of obedience to God's will and concern for the community.  

Regular activities include Prayer Breakfasts at the URC Wood Street, Coffee Stop at the Wesley Hall, the Good Friday Walk of Witness from St Mary the Virgin, Monken Hadley along the High Street to the churchyard at St John the Baptist's, united evening services during August and a combined service of worship during One World Week.  
     The main joint community activity is the Valley Centre:  a welcoming, open-door meeting point in the Dollis Valley, providing a caring Christian presence for local residents. The Centre is being relocated as part of the regeneration programme for the Dollis Valley.  From April 1st 2014 the Centre and its relocation is being managed by a new limited company - Barnet Churches Action - whose directors are appointed by the council members of Churches Together for Chipping Barnet. 
     We support the Chipping Barnet Foodbank and the Winter Shelter for the Homeless, along with other local churches and synagogues, and will take a supportive interest in the proposed Emmaus project to provide workshops and accommodation for the homeless in Barnet. 
     The Churches Together for Chipping Barnet Justice and Peace Forum produces a Newsletter that includes news of these projects. Copies are available on request from its editor, jennyremfry@btinternet.com
