Our Community Project will ensure this wonderful building continues to stand at the heart of the community it has served for almost 200 years by enabling us to offer the people of Kirkham superb modern amenities within the glorious setting of their Grade II* listed church. The changes will reflect the generosity and hospitality found in the life of the gospels; promoting the 'greater good' and embodying our identity as a Church which regards everyone of ultimate worth and value.
The inside of the tower has been refurbished and new church bells have been installed. You should be able to hear them! Work continues to prepare for the eventual return to active service of our tower clock.
In view of our longstanding relations with the regiments of Weeton Barracks, we are also mid-way through creating a Military Chapel within the nave, beside our two war memorials.
Work has also commenced in the main body of the church, during which the narthex (entrance area) and redundant balcony will be transformed into a new community space supported by a commercial-standard kitchen and lift-access. The work will take approximately 26 weeks to complete.
Sunday worship, baptisms, weddings and funerals will be unaffected, however other public access mid-week will be severely restricted with most services and activities taking place elsewhere. Please check the Diary for current information.
