Getting here

We are a vibrant Anglican church on the outskirts of Accrington, with a hunger to see the Kingdom of God grow in our area (Matt 3:2) and know the grace of God in our lives and church (Rom 12:6-8)

May be a few words of description might help you get a flavour of what kind of church we are like. We are a local community minded, friendly church for all ages. That means we value young and old, we don’t seek to serve ourselves but the local community that God has placed us in and then beyond

In this church family everyone is important and all have a part to play. We want to help ourselves and those around us, to discover more of the goodness of serving God with all of our lives. We do this as a response to the love God has first shown us

We believe in God and we know God’s immense love shown in Jesus – especially his death and resurrection. We’re a church that takes God’s word the Bible seriously, and know and rest in the reality and closeness of the Holy Spirit

We believe we need to keep ‘fresh’ and keep growing in our Christian faith. So we believe in prayer, in deepening ‘fellowship’ – spurring each other on through meeting together in large and small gatherings. And we believe that in order to grow we need to actively serve God, our church family and this community. God has given each of us gifts and abilities that we can use to do this in a whole variety of ways

We value and treasure the heritage of the past and thank God for all his creativity in the present. So our services will reflect a mix of the ‘old’ and the ‘new’, of traditional and contemporary forms of worship. God did not make us all the same so it’s no surprise that we all connect with God in different ways. But together God calls us to follow Jesus and love each other – in our variety and our differences

We are not a perfect church and we have not got it all sewn up – and probably never will! But we seek to be a real authentic expression of a community of faith in Jesus – and you’re very welcome to join us. What are you waiting for?
