The churches of St James, and St Francis are carefully re-opening to public worship with services at
St James (10.30 Sunday, 10am Wednesday) and
St Francis (6pm Sunday, 10am Thursday).

There will will be no singing, no sharing of the peace, and Communion will be given standing, in one kind, dropped into the hands. There will be a register of those attending for track and trace purposes.

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
