About Us

Welcome to the new Bowland Benefice web site.

Please note that due to current circumstances there are no public services at any of our churches. Do join us at the normal times in your own homes using the words on this web site or the facebook links.


St Peter and Paul Church, Bolton by Bowland is an ancient medieval church and we meet on Sundays at 11:15 for Holy Communion and Sunday School. Everyone is welcome.

St Ambrose Grindleton was built much later in the early 1800’s. The Sunday Eucharist is at 9:30 except on the FOURTH Sunday when the time changes to 16:30

St Mary’s Gisburn is the most ancient of our three churches. Sunday Service is also at 9:30 and on the THIRD Sunday is at 16:30
