Welcome To Our Parish

We consist of 3 places of worship in South East Preston:
St Matthew’s Church, New Hall Lane
St James Church, Avenham
St Matthew’s Mission on Acregate Lane.

Each congregation is small in number, but large in welcome and enthusiasm. You are most welcome to join us, no matter your stage of life.

At each service we seek to worship God
as revealed to us in, and by, His Living Word, Jesus,
and to engage with God’s revelation
in his written Word,
the Bible.

Do have fun exploring our web site, contact us if you would like to know more about us, and do come and worship with us at one of our churches on Sunday morning.
