Covid-19 restrictions update to services of public worship:

Sunday services will resume at St James from Sunday 14th March (Mothering Sunday).

St. Francis will open this coming Thursday, 18th March.

Restrictions still apply with social distancing and face masks, no congregational singing and choir limited to three!

For those who would rather join in from home, live streaming of the service to the St. James Facebook page at 10.30 each Sunday will continue for the time being.

More details in the calendar and posts.

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
