New Vicar for St. Peter’s

We are delighted to announce the appointment of the Revd Alan Saunders as Vicar of St Peter’s Parish.  The date of the licensing is still to be arranged.
Please pray for Alan and his wife Ruth as they complete their ministry at Christ Church Pennington and move to St Peter’s Parish.

Alan says:
“St Peter’s Parish has held a special place in both mine and Ruth’s hearts. I have sensed that God might be calling us back for some time and we are thrilled to be returning. We have enjoyed over 5½ fantastic years at Christ Church Pennington in Leigh, during which time we have achieved a great deal and learned many valuable lessons. We are eager to join St Peter’s to rekindle old friendships, make new ones, and work together to build the Church and see God’s Kingdom come in Bolton.
Thank you so much for your prayers.”

Parish Centre

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.
