We are a small, mixed group of people. While predominently of more senior years, we have a number of younger families with children. We seek to help everyone along their faith journey through Sunday Morning Worship, Junior Church, Pause and Reflect (midweek devotional time), and Reel Issues (discussion of faith issues raised by current films). We also hold a weekly coffee morning, a Ladies Social Group, and various social activities through the year.
In partnership with the Youth Service the church developed a room in the building as a Youth Drop-In Centre. This has proved a real asset and very popular not only with our own children but with youth groups led by the Youth Service, and also Age Concern and other local groups. We are delighted to be able to provide this facility and to know it is much valued.
The church also plays a full part in Churches Together in Kirkham and District, enjoying good relationships with our sister churches of other denominations in the locality.
Founded as a Congregational Church just over 200 years ago, we became a part of the United Reformed Church at its formation in 1972. The United Reformed Church was formed by the union of the Congregational Church in England and Wales and the Presbyterian Church of England. Subsequently, the Churches of Christ and the Congregational Church of Scotland have united with the URC to make it what it is today.
