Who are we?

Melling Baptist Community Hub was set up by local people, mostly from Baptist churches in the area. We have a strong track record in North Merseyside of working within the local community.

We became aware some years ago that many of our activities were not easily accessible to residents of the growing community of Melling. With the support of the North Western Baptist Association and the Baptist Union of Great Britain, of which our churches are all members, we have sought to address this need by developing our work within this neighbourhood. Our commitment is to work with and for local people, to provide a community-centred church where they can find a sense of welcome and belonging.

This programme is led by Jo Hassoun who, along with her young family, lives in Melling. The work of the project is overseen by a local management team made up of local residents and individuals with experience in faith-based community provision. We seek to operate to the highest standards of good practice, and offer a warm welcome to all members of the community who are interested in being involved.
