Over 40 years ago, West Swindon was conceived, houses, schools, and infrastructure were built, to support, what was to be a growing community.

Four Church denominations, the Church of England, the Baptists, the Methodists and United Reformed Church responded by committing resources and ministers, working in a way supporting this new West Swindon community. (An Ecumenical Partnership)

They built Oliver Tomkins Schools, and the Churches of Toothill and Holy Trinity Shaw.

However, times have changed and resources have diminished, and so after 40 years this formal partnership will come to an end at the end of August 2024.

There is much to be proud of over the last 40 years on how together the denominations have supported the people of West Swindon, and a lot of this work will continue like our “Open the Book teams” under new governance models.

So, from September the 1st your nearest Churches reflecting the denominations who came together in the 1980’s will be
