YOU're invited...

We are a large parish firmly rooted in the Church of England where we offer our worship across a wide range of traditions at our three centres of worship. Above all we seek to honour God through the quality of our worship (both in church and in our daily lives) and the welcome we extend to all in Jesus’ name.

A very warm welcome to our website and to our three churches. We are based near Ramsbottom on the edge of Manchester and the edge of the West Pennine Moors, but at the centre of our communities! Across our churches we have different styles of worship but one heart; we seek to live out our faith in Jesus, summarised in our mission statement based on his great commandments and great commission :

Loving God, Loving Neighbours; Sharing Jesus with You.

As we seek to be a Christian community at the heart of our local community you are welcome to join us for worship, to find out more about the Christian faith, or just for a cup of coffee and a chat!
