Community Facility

During 2017/18, an exciting programme of works will ensure our wonderful building continues to stand at the heart of the community it has served for almost 200 years.  Check here for regular updates.

The inside of the tower has now been refurbished in preparation for the installation of our ten new bells which will be delivered to church on the 4 November 2017, and the return to active service of our tower clock.

In view of our longstanding relations with the regiments of Weeton Barracks, we are creating a Military Chapel within the nave.  This will be on the north side, across from the Lady Chapel, which will place it immediately beside our two war memorials.  Work will begin on 6 November 2017.

Major work will commence on 8 January 2018 to redevelop the narthex (entrance area), existing church room and redundant balcony to create a new community space plus commercial-standard kitchen.  The work will take approximately 22 weeks to complete.  Architectural plans and a computer-generated image are on display in the back of the church building which is open 9:00-5:00 every day. 

These new facilities will enable us to offer Kirkham's many thriving community groups, along with local schools and families, 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 becoming known as a church who regards everyone of ultimate worth and value.
