Welcome to the website for St Lawrence and St Pauls Church, Longridge.
On the site you will find a range of information, including times of services, details of how to book baptisms and forthcoming events. To get the most up-to-date information about what is happening please look at the 'Log'. This is our church magazine and will give you a flavour of the life of our church.
Longridge church is a very busy and active congregation that seeks to serve the whole town. We work hard to offer services and support for people of all ages. We start with newborns with our weekly parent and toddler group that also includes singing some Christian songs, right up to our services and visits to nursing homes for the elderly. We are blessed to have an outstanding church school, and a particular strength of the church is its work with children and young people. We have even been given an award in recognition of this work. Our family services are very popular, as are our after school services. Here there are action songs, food and craft all combined. We also work hard to support the children and young people as they grow. One such group is 'Teen Talk' on a Friday, where the teenagers meet up and explore issues that are important to them.
Alongside this work we also seek to care for those in need of all ages and seek to have a range of quieter services. Evensong, with its words dating back to 1662, is popular with many people who like to enjoy the stillness of this traditional service.
To find out more about our church, please do look at the site and read through the 'Log'. If you have any questions, click the link to contact us, and we will be more than happy to help in any way we can.
With best wishes
Revd David Anderson.
