St Paul's, Astley Bridge.

St. Paul's is a large evangelical Anglican church serving a parish stretching from the centre of Bolton northwards up to the edge of the West Pennine Moors.

We are a group of Christians of all ages at different stages in our journeys of faith. We are committed to gathering together to worship God, we seek to grow together in our relationship with God and one another and we want to go together into our community to demonstrate God's love in action.

We recognize that people meet with God in different ways and so we have two worship services each Sunday which differ in style and approach. You can be assured of a warm welcome at any of our services. We always serve coffee afterwards so stay for a drink, introduce yourselves and get to know us – we’d love to meet you!
