St Cyprian's is a delightful Victorian church built by James Horsfall and positioned next to his factory now Webster Horsefall Latch and Batchelor Ltd. We have a small, friendly, active community from a wide range of backgrounds and with a broad spread of interests. What holds us together is Christian faith and a desire to explore more of the God who reveals himself in Jesus Christ and what he calls each of us to in our lives.
We are an open and welcoming community and any who wish, can discover a home amongst us. Come and worship in our Victorian Grade 2 listed building with its excellent set of stained glass windows, check out the Wikipedia article for more history and photographs. The congregation are actively engaged in support to missions in Africa (Uganda) and elsewhere. A dedicated group of volunteers arrange the flowers whilst the Memorial garden in front of the church was restored in 2010 by the congregation and was blessed by the then outgoing vicar Rev Tony Johnson. This year, 2017, we enter a period of interegnum following the departure of Fr. Roy Anetts from St Cyprians to pastures new and we wish him a long and happy mission North of the Border. Services will now be organised by our Lay Parish team headed by Jeanne Shaw who is the contact for Weddings, Christenings and Funeral Services. Next to the church is the old Victorian schoolroom and we also have the Memorial Hall, with its fully equiped kitchen, which is available for hire for parties, receptions and other meetings.
This site shares something of our life – our worship and other activities. Please explore and if you want to find out more, do get in touch with us. Parking is available close to the church on a Sunday as the small businesses are closed otherwise there is a large car park outside Next. Disabled access is completely on the level from the pavement into the church, which now has a fully disabled access toilet, and into the memorial hall.
Through Jesus Christ in unity Reaching out with love and Service to the community.
