St. Luke’s church Halliwell provides a relaxed and warm place of worship in a relatively modern building. We make every effort to help all ages feel at home and to be accessible to those for whom English is not their first language. Through prayer, teaching from the Bible and fellowship we aim to support one another in following Jesus in our daily lives and in reaching out to others.
As we emerge from the restrictions of the pandemic, we are returning to two services on Sunday mornings; a short service of prayer at 9.30am and our main service at 10.45am. Chairs are somewhat more spaced than before the pandemic and we are asking people to wear face coverings so that we can protect one another. We are singing during services and make use of a variety of contemporary songs and traditional hymns.
The church of St Luke is part of the West Bolton team of churches. The parish of West Bolton 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 Officers, 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.
You are very welcome at our Advent and Christmas services and events – bring your family and friends or come along on your own. Whether it will be your first time at church or you have been before, we look forward to welcoming you!
