We have a new minister!

We welcome Rev Hilary Smith, who has joined us from Parkgate and Neston URC.  She joins Rev Peter Lyth in looking after the Southport and Formby team of URC churches.

Her next service at Birkdale will be on 13th March.  Do come along to meet her.

If you would like to get to know a bit about her look to our News page.

Sunday Morning Worship is changing.  

Now that Covid restrictions are being lifted, we ask worshippers to use masks as they feel is right for their own peace of mind.  There are plenty of seats so that you can sit apart from others if you prefer.  

Rows of chairs will still be well-spaced.  You can sit with your families and friends, but if you would prefer to sit apart from others just place something on the seats either side of you. (It could be a hymn book, for example.)  Hymn-singing is encouraged and should sound much better without masks!  Services will continue to start at 10:45am and last for 40 to 45 minutes.  See our Come to Church page...

Hand sanitising dispensers are available at both entrances.

We look forward to seeing you!

We're opening up!

There's usually lots going on here, but we had to curtail our normal meetings and gatherings.  However, we are now re-opening our premises to our regular users.  We've been making everywhere as Covid-safe as possible.  Look at our What's On page to see which groups are meeting and when.

We will make you welcome, so drop in or contact us.
