Last year we were awarded Child Friendly Church status from the Diocese of Blackburn. We encourage parents with children to come along to our services. We have a comfortable crèche in church where children and parents can sit together and play and read whilst being involved in worship.

St. Mary’s is a Fairtrade parish and we have an extensive range of Traidcraft products for sale in church.

We have disabled facilities (toilets, access and hearing loops) at both our church and church hall.
