Christ Church with St John Bacup at Central

Christ Church, Bacup is a friendly, welcoming church right at the heart of the town centre on Burnley Road. We usually meet at 10.30am each Sunday, but occasionally join with our sister church Holy Trinity, Tunstead. We also enjoy monthly joint services with our Methodist friends, with whom we share the same building. We also have a YouTube channel where we share our weekly online service. Whether in person or online, we would love to have you join with us.
