About Us

St Paul's is a lively church, affiliated to The Society, and under the episcopal care of the Bishop of Burnley, serving a mixed parish. St Paul's Primary School, and a number of other organisations play important roles in our worshipping community. There is a daily celebration of the Mass, and three times per week there is coffee available after the service.

Each month, we hold Messy Church on the third Sunday of the month, which is an opportunity for families to come together to worship God through craft, fun and fellowship over food.  In addition, during our Messy Church, we often celebrate Messy Mass together, and have the opportunity to meet Jesus in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood.

We are always happy to welcome those who are exploring the possibility of marriage, or would like their children baptised/christened. Baptisms take place during the 1030 Eucharist on Sunday mornings, and further information is available on this site.  If you would like to arrange a baptism, please come along to a Sunday 1030 Mass and have a word with Fr David at the end.

The Sacraments of Reconciliation and Anointing of the sick are available at St Paul's.  Please email the Vicar or telephone on 01257 431579 for further details.

Each year we prepare adults and children from Year 6 or upward for Confirmation.  Details of the preparation are published in the autumn, but if you are considering Confirmation as the next step in your Christian journey, please speak to Fr David at any time.
