Wearing of Face coverings in Church.
We would like to remind everyone that current Government guidance is that although the country has moved to a 'personal perception of risk-based' approach regarding the wearing of face masks, it is also expected that people will continue to wear them in crowded and enclosed spaces where you come into close contact with others. We feel that our church comes into this category, due to its small size and low ceiling, therefore we respectfully ask that you continue to wear a facemask when you come to church, at least for the foreseeable future. As always, we will have disposable masks available at the entrance if you've forgotten yours. Thank you for considering the needs of others in this matter. This includes children of primary school age upwards.

If, however, you do wish to attend church without a face-covering, upstairs space will be available from this Sunday.

We are now singing all our songs, but will continue to wear masks while doing so.

Our Church Leadership Team are regularly reviewing the current measures we have in place in our building, to carefully balance our wellbeing with lifting of restrictions.

Self-regulating social distancing measures continue to be in place downstairs. Two chairs equal 1 meter.
We will now be singing all our songs, but will continue to wear masks while doing so.

It is no longer necessary to book in advance, however, we do ask that you register as you arrive with Linda.

An Offering will be taken during the service on Sunday morning. If you prefer you may wish to do Bank Transfer.
Susan Summersgill our Church Treasurer, will be happy to give you the details you need to do this.

We hope Junior and Tot’s Church will be able to resume in Dec.

The children are welcome to attend ordinary church services with their parents during this time. However, we do ask that unless sitting upstairs, they too wear a face covering at all times.

If you have any queries, please speak to Jill Heaton or one of the other JC leaders.

For Tot’s Church information please contact, Joanne, Alison or Louise.


Advent this year begins on Sunday 28th Nov. In past years we have enjoyed taking part in our rag doll ‘Posada’. Not being able to share in the passing on the Posada dolls last year, we tried it virtually, and this year we have something a little different to share with you.
Each Sunday in advent and on Christmas day, during the lighting of our advent candles at the beginning of the service, we will be inviting each family to take a Pebble Nativity character. Each family will be given a small bag to keep your Pocket Pebble Nativity in. There will be a different character each Sunday for you to keep or pass on to a neighbour or friend. During advent the children will come in to church for the lighting of the advent candles and sharing of our Pocket Pebble Nativity, before leaving for Junior and Tot’s Church.

Our annual Toy/Gift service will be held on Sunday 5th Dec. When you are invited to bring along a gift, toy or selection box. These items are then distributed between families and individuals in need or financial hardship as Christmas gifts, by CoTS, Women’s refuge and other charities in the Burnley area.
The service is not Family Worship like in previous year’s however, the children will come in to church before going into JC and TC.
The items need to be new and please do not gift wrap them.
We thank you for your support in this worthwhile mission


Every Thursday our church is open for donations of food from 2-4pm …
Many families need the help of foodbanks more than ever during the
holidays, and sadly many foodbanks have been experiencing fewer
donations against a greater need recently.
So please if you can, add a few extra items to your shopping trolly next time
you’re out shopping and drop them off on Thursday afternoon, or bring
them along on Sunday morning. Your donations go to help families in
Burnley through the work of Church on the Street.
If you or any one you know is in need of a food parcel, text “Food Parcel”
with an address to 07582776574

We were hoping to recommence Messy Monday after the Autumn Half Term. However, following the increase of covid in our school and area we are having to re-think our start date.
However, once we are able to consider meeting again, in order to do so we will require volunteers to help set up on Sunday after church. If you could help us with this, please speak to Ian, Denise or Maureen.
