On the 19th March 2017 Aintree Village Family Church joined in fellowship with Aintree Baptist Church to become one church. The Rev. Phil Jump (Regional Minister for the North West Baptist Association) led the service of amalgamation and the Rev. Geoff Bentley was inducted as Minister. The service was attended by many friends from the local community, as well as friends from other churches whose support we have greatly appreciated.
Since then, we've been getting to know one another, as well as looking for ways to improve the church building to make it more accessible to all in the future.
Now the work has begun! We look forward to seeing all that God has planned for the church and its community.

Coronavirus - advice for churches
All of us should be following Government advice regarding good hygiene practices including:
carrying tissues and using them to catch coughs and sneezes, and binning the tissue;
washing hands with soap and water (for 20 seconds) or using sanitiser gel to kill germs;
avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands;
cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Let’s continue to pray for all our sisters and brothers across the world who have been, and are continuing to be, affected by COVID-19. We pray that all will know God’s overwhelming, steadfast love.
We pray for those who are particularly fearful at moment.
We pray for the most vulnerable and isolated in our neighbourhoods.
We pray for the medical staff on the front line of care, we pray that they will be sustained physically, emotionally and spiritually in the coming weeks.
We pray for all those leading the response to COVID-19 across the world.
We acknowledge the Lord’s sovereignty in and through all things and pray using the words of Paul to the church in Ephesus:
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.
Ephesians 3:14-21 (NRSV)
