Here you will find out about some of the ways that the Bridge Church makes a difference within our community, the UK and around the world. At The Bridge Church, we believe that through faith, love and hope in action truly anything’s possible.
Baby Basics is a project aiming to support new mothers in Bolton & Bury who are struggling to meet the financial and practical burden of looking after a new baby. Baby Basics provides much-needed essential baby items to vulnerable families, this may be in response to domestic abuse, homelessness, trafficking or poverty.
Working with midwives, health visitors and other professional groups Baby Basics provides support directly where it is needed most.
Our volunteers lovingly collect, sort and package a Moses Basket and labour bag of clothing, toiletries and essential baby equipment as an attractive gift to new mothers – this communicates a message of love, value and worth to those who often feel undeserving and uncared for.
God is at the centre of Baby Basics as we are inspired and motivated by His heart for everyone – we believe every person we help is wonderfully made and every baby deserves the best start in life.

Shine is a breakfast club which is held on our double-decker bus on the Breightmet Estate in Bolton.
The Shine Bus is open to all children in the area who would like to come, enjoy a breakfast and join in with our fun and exciting programme. Activities range from craft, food, football and short teaching based upon Christian morals. Shine Bus is run by a team of volunteers who are Enhanced CRB checked and dedicated to providing a safe and friendly environment for all who jump on board.
Shine is held every fortnight on a Saturday morning.
Bridge Tots is a fantastic community based baby and toddler group which meets every Wednesday from 10:00 am to 11:30 am at The Bridge Church during term time. A great opportunity for you and your child to make friends, enjoy creating some lovely crafts, share in snack time and get musical at song time.
We provide toys and equipment for your child to explore, play and interact with other babies & toddlers in a safe and relaxed atmosphere. All we ask is that parents supervise their children during these sessions.
A voluntary donation of £1 goes towards purchasing new toys and equipment.
