Did you read about Shine in The Observer?


We are delighted that Jimmy Hinton was featured in The Observer this weekend, talking about the work of Shine in St Stephen's Church, West Bowling.


“It’s a story of resurrection,” said Hinton, who has been vicar at St Stephen’s since 2005. “New life has come from a place that was considered finished. The church is used every day of the week for planned activities but also for people who just want to be somewhere friendly and warm.”


An independent study published on Sunday 18th October (commissioned by the National Churches Trust and carried out by State of Life, an organisation which measures social value), calculated the financial value of the services and support that church buildings provide, and the health and wellbeing they create, at £12.4bn a year.
