We are a Church of England Parish (Diocese of Chester) on the Wirral Peninsula serving the communities of Thurstaston and Irby.
We have two church buildings and four congregations, so we offer a large variety of styles of worship for people of all ages and all stages of Christian discipleship.
We would be pleased to welcome you at any of our services. Revd Jane Turner (Rector)
All remaining Coronavirus restrictions have now been lifted for all Sunday Services.
We will keep good ventilation in place (doors and windows open) for all services. It will be personal choice whether you wear a face covering in church or not. We will leave sanistiser in place and again it will be personal choice to use it or not. If you wish to have a bit of space around you, we suggest that you place your books on the seat next to you. We would encourage everybody to check before sitting directly next to someone, that they are Ok with that.
For those who still feel vulnerable or anxious, we would encourage you to attend the service on Wednesday morning where, for the time being, we will continue to ask people to wear face coverings and sanitise.
