The Lunesdale Community
is a new ecumenical centre for contemplation and study in Halton. Their main influence for their spirituality is the Taize community in France.
They are welcoming new members to live with them. They would love to introduce themselves to other churches and are keen to welcome people to come to their evening prayer (Sun to Thurs) and to see what other ways that they could be involved with other Christians in the City. www.lunesdale.community Andy and Anna Walker 01524888588 Lunesdale Commuity 78 Beech Rd Halton LA2 6QH
