St Mary & All Saints Goodshaw with St John Crawshawbooth

St Mary and All Saints, Goodshaw with St John, Crawshawbooth


Our parish serves Goodshaw and Crawshawbooth. Our church is situated at the top of the hill in Goodshaw on Goodshaw Lane at the junction with Goodshaw Ave and Goodshaw Lane, Rossendale BB4 8DD


St Mary and All Saints, Goodshaw with St John, Crawshawbooth is a fellowship of love belonging to Jesus. All are invited to join in prayer and worship and embark on a spiritual journey with us.

At present Rossendale is undergoing a reorganisation  of clergy in order to best meet the needs of today’s church within the valley. Over the last two years we have been developing links with St Mary’s Church, Rawtenstall and St Paul’s, Constable Lee. However, we are currently working without an incumbent. We are fortunate to have a caring and supportive church family with a number of Lay Ministers so that working together our fellowship and worship remains strong.

Our vision is to follow Jesus by learning His ways and sharing His love.

The parish of Goodshaw: St Mary & All Saints with St John Crawshawbooth is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Manchester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

We are thrilled that our church building is now open for Sunday worship. However, Covid restrictions remain in place. Should you wish to worship with us please email us at  [email protected] in order to book a place, as numbers are restricted to a maximum of 30. Face masks must be worn, please.
