St Paul's Church seeks to serve in the Halliwell Community witnessing to the love of God shown to all in Jesus Christ. Worship is low evangelical with a more contemporary feel at the all age service on the first Sunday of the month. We are a small friendly congregation. There are creche facilities and a Sunday School. We work together in the newly created Benefice of West Bolton with St Thomas the Apostle, Bolton, St Luke, Halliwell, St. Paul with Emmanuel, Bolton le Moors and St George the Martyr, Daubhill.
In the Halliwell Road area there is a weekly house fellowship. There are occasional social events from seaside outings to quiz nights.
