Welcome to St Paul with St Luke's - serving Tranmere and Rock Ferry on the Wirral.  if you want to know more please do get in touch, or why not come along and meet us.   Further information is on the other tabs of our webpage, but here is a general introduction. Please note details do change, particularly over the Summer, so please do get in touch.

We have an impressive Church building with a large worship space and three Chapels.  It offers a particularly fine setting for the celebration of baptisms and weddings, and is a fitting place for the funeral of a loved one when the occasion requires.

Each week we have three Holy Communion Services in the moderate Catholic tradition of the Church of England (one on Sunday mornings and two on Wednesdays), making good use of our Church building and its chapels as we worship God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  We also have an informal all-age Service each week (except in August): Community Worship.  On Monday evenings we open up our Hall for Open Door, when we gather around a shared meal to explore and discuss what it is to follow Jesus as a Christian today - all are welcome.  We also have a drop-in lunch on a Wednesday.

On Monday mornings during term time our Little Rockers playgroup for pre-school children and parents meets between 9.30am and 11.30am every Monday (during term time - excluding holidays and Bank Holidays).  It costs just £1.

We also have regular coffee markets, Fairs in June and December, and additional Services at Christmas, Easter and for major Christian festivals.  Please do contact us for any further information you need.  Thankyou.
