In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.


"The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not overcome it" John 1:5

It is with great sadness that we are suspending our church services and Youth Ministry activities. This is unprecedented in the life of our ancient parish and fills us all with sorrow. Churches across the land are faced with the same problem. We are looking at new ways to bring the words of Christ and His message of Hope to our parishioners.


There are many online resources available these days such as the websites of the Church of England  and the Diocese of Blackburn


 Please see the latest guidance for churches from the Church of England


Collect for Sunday 29th March 5th Sunday of Lent


Most merciful God,
who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ
delivered and saved the world:
grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross
we may triumph in the power of his victory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen

Will Adams and his brother have created a website called #HelpPenwortham with the aim of:


1. Allowing  vulnerable residents to view what food and other delivery and collection services are available locally, to reduce stress and anxieties. 


 2. Ensuring  our local businesses and economy can continue through this very difficult period, ensuring they can come out of this period still as vibrant as before. 


Browse our list of local businesses in Penwortham, South Ribble and Preston. Order food or other vital items for delivery or collection. Shop local and help to ensure the Penwortham and South Ribble economy emerges as diverse and vibrant as before.



For the first time in over 150 years we will not be printing a hard copy of our church magazine for distribution to our parishioners.  We will however continue to compile it and publish it online.  You can view our latest edition from the top of this page.


Because of the COVID 19 pandemic, Christian Meditation meetings have been suspended until further notice.

Our  practices are even more important at this time so please keep up with your meditation. When circumstances permit we will resume.
