Richard Avery wrote the lyrics for the hymn "We Are the Church" that says "I am the church, you are the church; we are the church together." It also says "the church is not a building, the church is not a steeple, the church is not a resting place, the church is a people."
The life of any church family is all about connecting. Connecting with God, and connecting with people.
The Fellowship programs at Charlton Church are an integral part of our ministry helping people to connect with one another. We strive to provide a wide variety of opportunities for people of all ages to share their spiritual journeys with one another.
