• "Worshipping God, Loving one another, Serving our town"

    Welcome to Bolton Parish Church, part of the united benefice of St Peter, Bolton-le-Moors with St Phillip, Bolton-le-Moors. We are a Church of England parish within the Diocese of Manchester. Bolton Parish Church is the civic church of Bolton, rooted in the Anglican choral tradition, and is known throughout the town as “the Parish Church”.

    There has been a Christian place of worship on the site of this church for 1200 years - and we are proud to continue this heritage of Anglican witness in the heart of the town. Our desire is to worship God together - offering both young and old opportunities to experience God's love - and to serve Him in our town and communities. We extend a warm welcome to everyone, whether confident in faith or just wanting to explore more. 

    Through the pages of the website, we seek to convey the life and work of our parish, its history and our plans for the future. We hope that you will find the information interesting and that it will inspire you  to join us in worship or simply to explore our beautiful church.
