Church of England Diocese of Blackburn St. Peter and St. Paul Rishton

About Us

Welcome to St Peter and Paul's, Rishton. Our church has been a place of prayer and worship, study and teaching, love and fellowship here in our town for well over 100years. Built in 1877 to serve the growing needs of the village, St Peter and Paul's strives to do the same today by 'being here for Christ and there for others', our parish motto. The celebration of the Eucharist, often called the mass or Holy Communion, is at the heart of all we do.
