Sunday Morning Worship is changing.  

On the advice of the Mersey Synod, we are asking worshippers to continue to use face coverings where possible, but we will be adding more chairs and allowing you sit with your friends.  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 allowed, but could be a bit awkward wearing a mask.  The sanctuary will continue to be as well-ventilated as it can be.  Services will continue to start at 10:45am and last for 40 to 45 minutes.  See our Come to Church page...

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 feel welcome, despite the current restrictions we're living with.  In the mean time, look at our Messenger magazine and contact us.

40 years ago our new sanctuary was opened!

The old church started collapsing and had to be demolished.  With the support of the community we raised funds to build our new church building, which was opened on 14th December 1980

Where has the time gone???? 

Grosvenor Jazz


Regrettably, having consulted all the Government and Church requirements, it has proved impossible in our hall, to meet the distances required between performers on stage, performers to audience, and space out the audience at tables,

As such, we have had to conclude that we are unable to put on these planned events and thus all this season's events are cancelled.

All tickets can be returned for a full refund.  Please contact Brian on 07817 540133.
