St Helen's Church
St Michael's Church
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.

Helping our neighbour
Homeless Project at Blackpool
I don’t think we will be ever a time when the Bridge Project will not be needed.
People need our help, they live on the streets in doorways, under bridges, it will soon be getting colder, so let’s start knitting again. they will need lots of scarves, hat and gloves please.
It’s coming up to Harvest time, and winter, those hats and scarves are always more than welcome.
The need for food is greater at this time of the year, so please can we fill our cars when we go through to Blackpool.
We leave a box at the back of Church and there is one in the Parish Rooms, we go quite often so lets us keep it filled up.
It is interesting to note of course that there is no Biblical word for love of inanimate objects or any kind material possession.
Perhaps we need to focus down on the contexts in which we use the word love, which is so precious that it is even one of the names of God (1 John), but where there is an appropriate context to use it much more than we do at present.
