Transforming communities from the inside out

Teams

Fitton Hill, Oldham

Fitton hill is a large housing estate just south of Oldham town centre.  We have seen an amazing amount of transformation over the last 11 years.  Everywhere you look you can see change.  Community spirit rising, crime falling, new facilities being built and old ones being restored.

Our vision is to see our neighbourhood restored back to how God intended it to be and we are seeing this happen year upon year. We believe this the holistic gospel that Jesus left for us. We long to see people freed from addictions and destructive behavioural patterns, people who love themselves and others, as they discover a God who loves them.

Eden Fitton Hill Community CentreWe have planted a church in the area in conjunction with the Salvation Army’s 614 project (Isaiah 61 v 4) , which is a central verse to all that we are. This expresses itself in many different ways, but we have a main meeting on a Sunday at lunch-time, where we share food and God’s ways and have fun. We believe this to be an essential part of what it means to be church in our community, as we share fellowship with each other. We also run a number of youth clubs and activities in our area, ranging from football to craft clubs as well as family  and community activities

Over the 11 years we have seen our community transformed beyond what we could dream or imagine and part of our holistic approach have seen a health centre being set up inspiring a handful of young people to go onto university seen whole streets become restored and won a national youth work award.  Some of our main work goes on on our door steps with bikes being fixed, lending out football nets or having fun washing cars together.  We want more for our estate but also celebrate the distant we have travelled and the transformation that this journey has had on us as a community.
