The Parish Church sits at the heart of the town of Grange-over-Sands, next door to the clock tower at the top of the main street. The church was built in 1853 in the Victorian Gothic style and has been enlarged over the years, particularly during the Edwardian period. It is a light and airy building with fine light-oak paneling; beautiful stained-glass windows, particularly in the Lady Chapel and Baptistry and many interesting memorials of an historical nature.
The doors are open every day from 9 am to 5 pm, and visitors are welcome to look around and/or take time for private prayer. There is a prayer table with cards and leaflets, and a prayer tree where names can be added for intercessions which are offered at the weekly services.
It is a warm welcoming community for all ages, and offers a variety of worship. The building is used regularly by our local Primary School with whom we have excellent relationships as well as well as others, including at the moment the weekly meetings of the Grange MIND group. other meetings.
At 11 am each Sunday we join together for our Parish Eucharist (Common Worship), followed by fellowship and refreshments. During the year the Parish Eucharist (each quarter) offers the opportunity for anointing, laying on of hands and prayers for healing and wholeness. On the fifth Sundays of the year we join together with the congregation of our daughter church (The Fell Church) for a join Parish Eucharist.
On the first Wednesday of the month at 10 am there is a short said service of Holy Communion, again followed by fellowship over coffee.
The main feasts and festivals of the church's liturgical year are celebrated joyfully, and the church is increasingly popular for marriages throughout the year. The church is often used for civic services, and we are thankful for the excellent relationships with our town and local community, which we view important as part of our wider witness and service.
