The Parish of St. Peter’s Halliwell consists of four churches and the Parish Centre. If you would like to join us for worship you can choose which centre suits you best. This may depend on where you live, where you feel more comfortable, and what style of worship you prefer.
Services are at 10:00 or 10:30 on Sunday mornings in all the churches, with the addition of a 6:30pm Sunday service at St. Peter’s Church.
More details of some of our special services may be available at our page on the Church of England web site, A Church Near You.
St. Peter’s parish church is an impressive Grade II listed building at the heart of the parish. In the 1980’s an extension provided a lounge, kitchen and toilets and work is currently underway to provide a welcoming entrance area.
Barrow Bridge Mission is situated in an important conservation area on the edge of Bolton. The attractive community is a former model community mill village and comprises former mill owner and worker cottages.
Smithills Fellowship meets in St. Peter’s Smithills Dean CE Primary School and Smithills Hall Chapel. The Chapel forms part of Smithills Hall and is leased from the council.
St. Andrew’s meets in the Hope Centre, which serves the Johnson Fold estate. The centre has been completely refurbished in the last 15 years, to better serve the needs of the surrounding community.
St. Peter’s Parish Centre is a hive of activity most days with church groups and other bookings.
It is also home to the administrative hub of the parish. The office is open Monday to Friday from 9.30am-3pm.
