During the current Covid-19 lockdown, services will be live streaming to the St. James Facebook page at 10.30 each Sunday until local infection rates fall to a point where it is safe to meet together again.

This will be followed by a Zoom coffee and catch up at 12 noon.

More details in the calendar and posts.

The Wednesday morning Eucharist will continue at St James for up to six people, please contact Fr. Jack if you wish to be included but are not a regular and additional services may be arranged if numbers grow to exceed six people.

St Francis and the community halls of St Matthews are closed for the present time due to the Coronus virus (COVID-19) pandemic.

More information may appear in our Newsletter and on Facebook.


We are delighted you have found our website.

The North Barrow Team Ministry serves the following areas of Barrow-in-Furness:

  • St James the Great – Hindpool
  • St Francis – Ormsgill
  • Parkside was served by St Matthew (now closed) so services are at St James or St Francis. The St Matthews community hall still serves area for other activities and groups.

In these pages you will find information about life in our team. There is space to explore the faith, to pray, to ask questions and to make contact with us. We hope the information will be helpful but its really just a means to an end, that end is to bring people to the love of Christ.

In a rapidly changing world the church sometimes struggles to keep up yet we exist, as we always have, to proclaim that love of God to all.

May you glimpse something of that love through our website and we hope to see you soon.

With every Blessing
