SADLY, BECAUSE OF GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS, CHURCH WILL BE CLOSED FOR WORSHIP UNTIL WE ARE ADVISED THAT IT IS SAFE TO OPEN AGAIN
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. The church is open for visitors on Thursday mornings all year round. We have an active Junior Church called Sparks and a Messy Church called FAB (Faith and Belonging).
