These days, thank God, there is increasing co-operation between the different Christian denominations at the local level. Commonly different Catholic parishes take part in different local fellowships.
Holy Name & St Peter's: At Pentecost in 1989, the five main churches in Oxton (Holy Name, Oxton Congregational church, St Peter's, St Saviour's and Trinity with Palm Grove) signed a covenant. (A copy of this can be found at the back of church near the baptistry.) The group meets four times a year. Each church has two representatives, plus clergy.
From Holy Name the lay representatives are Bernadette Hamilton and Jack Cuffe.
St Joseph's (North Rd), and St Michael's: These both partake of the Prenton and Woodchurch Fellowship of Churches. Also included are St Stephen's, Prenton, and Holy Cross, Woodchurch, both C.of E., Prenton Methodist, Woodchurch Methodist, and Prenton United Reform Church. Once every two months we meet for common worship on a Sunday evening at different churches in the fellowship. The ministers meet for breakfast once a month. Ministers and lay representatives meet about four times a year.
St Joseph's Upton is part of UPTON CHURCHES TOGETHER IN CHRIST
encouraging Christian Unity in Upton. Meetings are held monthly in various venues and at various times.
