Welcome to St Helen's Church

 

Sharing God's Love with people we meet wherever we are

 

Our village church is one of the oldest in Lancashire with parts of the church building dating back to the 12th century.  Located across the river Lune, south-west of Lancaster and close to where the Lune flows out to the Irish Sea, we are part of the deanery of Lancaster & Morecambe, in the Diocese of Blackburn and The Church of England.

It was approved at our PCC meeting, on Sunday, that the following will be the way forward to open up our church. This is a provisional plan subject to prevailing conditions.

If you are displaying Covid like symptoms, please stop at home and book a Covid test.
You are requested to take a home Covid test before coming to church. If it is a positive result, stay at home and follow the instructions in the booklet provided with the test.


From Sunday 8th August all pews will be available and there will be a short hymn sung at the close of the service. 

Cards, saying ‘Please Do Not Sit On This Seat’ will be available for people who prefer not to sit next to someone outside their bubble or household.

From Sunday 22nd August we will add another short hymn at the start of the service

Holy Communion will remain bread only for the time being.

PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RISK ASSESSMENT OF THE SITUATION AND FOLLOW WHATEVER FEELS BEST FOR YOU.

There is coffee and biscuits served after 10:45am service.
