Our Church

Your parish church serving the communities of Halton & Halton Moor

St Wilfrid's Church offers vibrant colourful Anglo-Catholic family-friendly worship with Communion every Sunday. We are part of the Diocese of Leeds in the Church of England. We have a thriving Sunday School, which meets every week apart from the first Sunday of each month, when we worship together in our All-Age Eucharist.

All are welcome to join us at our services, particularly if you have never been to church before.

 
Praying Together

As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to affect us, our usual pattern of services and opening has been suspended.


For Sunday worship we are currently alternating between St Wilfrid's and our sister church in the benefice, St Philip's Osmondthorpe. We meet at 10:30.

We will be at St Philip's on...

May 30th, June 13th and 27th, July 11th and 25th, August 8th and 22nd.

We will be at St Wilfrid's on...

June 6th and 20th, July 4th and 18th, August 1st, 15th and 29th.

We will be continuing to offer a Faith Online slot on our Facebook pages too. One of a variety of things will appear early each week.

Our historic building

Visit us!

St Wilfrid’s has the only original entirely wooden spire in the UK, which retains its original wooden shingles & frame. 

Our striking and beautiful church building, bridging the gap between Arts & Crafts style and Modernism, was completed in 1939, was designed by Arts & Crafts architect, Albert Randall Wells and features sculptures by Eric Gill and others.

The stone church is impressive in structure, with many large windows giving a beautiful, bright and spacious interior.

We are usually open for visitors on the first Saturday of every month from 10am – 2pm, after our Sunday 9:15am Communion service until 12:30, and from 11am – 12:30pm on Tuesdays. We hope this pattern will resume after Cornonvirus.
