Welcome to  St. Mary's in Penwortham

St. Mary's is the parish church of the Ancient Parish of Penwortham and dates from the 14th century. Although located in an urban area its setting is very attractive being in the midst of ancient woodland. The Chancel dates from the 14th century and the Tower dates from the 15th century. The Nave was rebuilt and enlarged in the 19th century. The church has 2 communion services on a Sunday and a communion service every Thursday morning.  We have an active Junior Church called Sparks  and a Messy Church called FAB (Faith and Belonging).

Our church re-ordering project was completed in 2011 and we returned to church in June of that year. We have installed under-floor heating, removed pews and replaced them with chairs and carried out repairs to the outside of the church. This meant that the church was closed for almost 2 years.  During that time services were held in our Church Hall on Cop Lane. The church hall land was  sold in 2018 and retirement apartments have now been built on it.


Our Parish Prayer


Lord Jesus,
 you brought the blessings of forgiveness and love, 
caring and fellowship to all whom you met in your earthly life.
 So by your grace and in the power of the Spirit, 
help us to share those same gifts 
with all who come to St Mary’s, in hope and expectation. Amen
