Cathedral of the Fylde Appeal

 

St Helen's Church is a Grade 1 listed Church and is now recognised with Blackburn Diocese as the Catherdral of the Fylde. St Helen's is open daily from 10am - 4pm for you to have a look around the beautiful stained glass windows and other historic interests. There are points of interest around the church for you to learn some of its interesting history.

 

The church has recently undergone major roof refurbishment at a cost of fifty thousand pounds as we had major leaks throughout the church roof, damaging some valuable items. So if you have enjoyed your look around  St Helen's Church we do ask if you would be so kind to make a donation to help cover this cost.

Click             for more information on how to help with the ongoing cost.

Latest Information from St Helen's

 

 

Following the Prime Minister's guidance on the 23rd March we have closed the church doors for the foreseeable future, this is a tough, challenging and uncertain time for all of us but together we shall get through it.

 

Since the outbreak of COVID19 it has brought to the forefront how strong our community spirit is, not just here in St Helen's but far and wide. Everybody has had to adapt rapidly to the current situation, not only to protect ourselves and others but to keep the country going.

 

 

Please pray:

 

 

Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy

in this time of uncertainty and distress.

Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may rejoice in your comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Amen.

Churchtown Community

 

Our local Churchtown in Bloom team have been working exceptionally hard behind the scences to help the community as they cannot get out due to Lockdown, unless of course following guidelines of social distancing. We have a closed online group within Churchtown making sure all residents are kept safe and well and stocked up with food. At these times of uncertainty even a quick phone call to say hi can brighten up anyone’s day, if you are a resident of Churchtown and would like to join please contact Karen 07530 817098. Sadly at this time we cannot add anyone from further afield, however we will endeavour to point you in the right direction for a group in your area.
