The Farnworth, Kearsley and Stoneclough Team is located at the south-eastern end of the Bolton Deanery. This is one of three large team ministries in a deanery which includes the town centre with its civic church and some single parish benefices serving a demographically wide range of communities. In some parts of the deanery there is considerable financial wealth and others very high levels of deprivation.
A breadth of church traditions is evident in the deanery and there is a high level of mutual respect for these traditions amongst and between the congregations and clergy. Generally, attendance at chapter meetings and Deanery Synod meetings is good and clergy within the deanery, including those in the Farnworth, Kearsley and Stoneclough Team, have valued the support afforded by the chapter and synod. The deanery also has a very active Mission and Pastoral Committee which regularly reviews the Deanery Mission Action Plan.
