Churches Together in Stocksbridge and District (CTSD)
The Churches Together in Stocksbridge and District meet regularly to discuss issues
of mutual concern to Christians in the area and work together ecumenically in a number
of ways - including joint acts of Christian witness, prayer and practical support
for people in the Stocksbridge area.
The members of CTSD jointly run the Bridge Community Shop on Manchester Road, and
organise Prayer Group meetings during the year and for the Week of Christian Unity
in January each year.
The following is an extract from a CTSD Newsletter:
CTSD is here to help those who have concerns for themselves or others. Please let
us know if you require our help. We hold joint prayer meetings to take these concerns
to God, and if there is any other way we can help, if it is possible, we will do
so or direct you to those who can. There are several ways you can contact CTSD:
• Write down your problem and place it in the box for that purpose being held
at The Bridge community shop. If you want the prayer request to be anonymous, just
write ‘please pray for someone who..........’
• If you would like us to contact you to help put your name, address and telephone
number, so that we can make sure you are available when we call.
• If you would like to speak to someone you can ring one of the following clergy:
Reverend Hilda Isaacson, 0114 285 1225
Father Stanislaus Maciuszek, 0114 288 2147
Pastor David McKeown, 0114 288 5315
• Also, the staff at The Bridge community shop are always willing to listen and help,
where possible. They will also be able to pass on your concerns to our joint prayer
meetings, if you would like them to do so.
• Any church member you may know will be willing to pass your requests on to us.
Prayer changes things and a burden shared is a burden halved. Don’t wait - get in
touch now. God bless you.
