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.

All you need to know.
You will no doubt have heard the Prime Ministers directive that England is to undergo a 27 day shutdown from just after Midnight on Thursday 5/11 until Wednesday 2/12.
Following consultation with The Vicar earlier today, May I please advise you that as previously intimated, the Church will be closed for public worship from this Wednesday afternoon 4th November until Wednesday 2nd December.
During the shutdown the Church will be permitted to open for private prayer and this will be on WEDNESDAYS and SUNDAYS. Please remember to keep the touching of Church Furniture to the absolute minimum and to follow the Covid Code.
Now some advance Christmas Notices.
Thanks once again to the generosity of Francis and Maureen Towers we hope to have Christmas Trees up and lit in time for Church reopening along with our Traditional Crib Nativity Scenes.
We shall also have in place a special post box at the back of Church for you to post your Christmas Cards. More about this nearer the date.
We can readily anticipate that Congregational singing of Christmas Carols will not be permitted this year, but in the Sundays leading up to Christmas, Paul Ronson and the Choir will be performing traditional beloved Carols for us.
Sadly it appears that due to various Covid Health and Safety Regulations and other practical difficulties involving moving around Church we have to abandon plans for
Christingle Service, Traditional 9 Lessons and Carols and our Christmas Eve Crib Service.
The Vicar however does intend to celebrate Midnight Mass at 11.30 pm on Christmas Eve but sadly there will be no Christmas Day Service at St Helens.
Instead on Christmas Day all St Helens Parishioners are invited to our sister Church at St Michaels for Morning Service.
Please make a note in your diaries, more details to follow as we get nearer to Christmas.
God Bless and Stay Safe Everyone.
