Love Poynton and Festival Manchester 2022
- The Love Poynton events are connected to the Festival Manchester initiatives, for more information -> Festival Manchester 2022 “Organised by hundreds of local churches from across the region, in partnership with The Message Trust and the Luis Palau Association, Festival Manchester is about sharing the good news of Jesus in word and deed across our city to see lives transformed.”
- The Love Poynton events are being coordinated by Churches Together in Poynton (CTiP). The success of these events depend on support from local volunteers and financial support. St Paul’s parish and parishioners will work with the other Poynton Christian communities to offer their support to this significant initiative.
