UPTON CHURCHES TOGETHER for Peace and Justice
The purpose of UptogPJ is to:
- Maintains an informal group of lay people representing all the Christian churches in Upton.
- Organises occasional inter-church events especially in the areas of peace and justice.
- Makes each church in Upton aware of what the others are doing.
- Looks for new opportunities for prayer and campaigning together for peace and justice.
- Is available, as a team of lay people, to assist and promote other ecumenical activities initiated by the clergy.
With the above aims in mind, UptogPJ has arranged Harvest Suppers (or similar) every October since 2003 and has taken responsibility, since 2005, for annual Christian Aid Week collections in May. Our group co-ordinates the annual carol singing in Upton Village and collections for Operation Christmas Child.
