St Nicholas w St John and St Michael

The Parish of St Nicholas, Newchurch with St John and St Michael, is a Church of England parish in the beautiful Rossendale Valley. We belong to the Diocese of Manchester and are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Here we pride ourselves in our warm welcome and the quality of our uplifting worship and music. We are blessed with a beautiful church building which inspires our worship and helps us to serve the needs of our local community. We are a diverse and welcoming congregation, who come from many different backgrounds. 

Enquiries about weddings and christenings are always welcome. We will meet with you personally to discuss your hopes and plans for these special occasions for you and your family. Pastoral care and support is offered also for families seeking funerals and burials for loved ones. 

Everyone is welcome at all of our services and activities. We are very happy to arrange visits to the church by appointment. We have accessible toilet with baby-changing facilities and a hearing loop is installed. There is disabled access from the rear of church. If you would like any more information, please be in touch. 

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
