On 27th August 1989, the then Bishop of Blackburn Alan Chesters laid a new Foundation stone and the new building of St. Christopher’s church quickly grew from the ground. During the next 20 years this new Parish Church was built and soon afterwards the new Parish Centre also completed, together the combined costs were in the region of £2 million.

Whilst a building is pleasing to the eye our thoughts must be drawn to what the ‘church’ really is. Of course, it is ‘The People’ and we have seen in recent years the closure of St. Nicholas’ church and the amalgamation of its people of God with the people of St. Christopher’s making the new Parish of St. Christopher & St. Nicholas.

The tradition of the church on this site has been very varied over the years but unlike some churches, we appear at present to have a level of re-generation whilst maintaining a tradition that is more of the ‘catholic’ persuasion.

Our Parish Priest is Fr. Martin Daniels and you will find this church OPEN most days of the week, especially in the mornings and on several evenings. YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME, come as a visitor or try it to see if you would like to stay with us.
