Lockdown 3 

We have taken the difficult decision to suspend public worship (ie services in church) at this time. Whilst this is hard, and not what any of us would desire, we believe it to be right at this time due to a number of factors and to prioritise the health & safety of our community.  This will come as a sadness to some, but we have not taken this decision lightly.
 
Worship Options

Zoom Family Services
These will continue at 9am each Sunday.  Services are about 50 minutes long and suitable for the whole family with songs, reading, activities (anything from a quiz to origami), talk and prayer.  Afterwards there is a chance to catch up with others over zoom coffee (or tea if you prefer!).  The codes for these services are emailed out in the weekly church update - please contact us if you would like to receive these.

Dial-a-sermon
A phone service of about 10/15 minutes long which include a reading, sermon and prayers.   This can be accessed by ringing 01772 963020. This is a joint venture with Buckshaw Village Church

Diocese Service
There is a service, available from 9am each Sunday, from different churches across our diocese.  This can be viewed on the Blackburn diocese youtube channel.

The church building may be closed,

Planning your Visit

A Warm Welcome

The following information is specifically for those planning to visit us for the first time, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

Most of our services take place in the Church Building (details below) starting at 10am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to give you plenty of time to park your car and then find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you will be greeted by one of our sidespeople who will give you everything you need for the service and show you where to sit.

After the 10am service tea, coffee and biscuits (and sometimes cake!) is served in the Community Centre. It is a great way to meet other people from church and enjoy a time of fellowship together.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10am with a warm welcome from the Vicar and usually lasts about an hour. On the first and third Sundays of the month the service is Holy Communion using Common Worship. The second Sunday of the month is when we have our Family Parade Service and the fourth Sunday service is Morning Praise. Neither of these services includes Holy Communion. If there is a fifth Sunday in the month we will have an All Age Service which is often quite lively with something for everyone regardless of how many years young they are.  It's probably easiest to check the calendar to see what is on each week!

If you prefer a quieter, more traditional service then at 8am each Sunday we have a quiet BCP (1662) Holy Communion Service which lasts about 45 mins.
