About Us

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!

St. Paul's Church in Astley Bridge 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.
