Welcome to the parishes of St Bartholomew Chipping and St Michael Whitewell, located in the south of the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  With fabulous walking, cycling and gastronomy on our doorsteps, our villages are a magnet to locals and tourists alike.  Our two churches offer an oasis of peace and calm, and we would love to welcome you to one of our church services, or just pop in at any time of day if you are passing.  All are welcome in this place.

I want to:

The Silver Service - First Tuesday of Each Month

The Silver Service is for anyone who enjoys traditional church but struggles to get to a Sunday service. The service takes place at 2:00pm in Chipping Village Hall on the first Tuesday of each month.  There will be Holy Communion followed by refreshments and time to chat.

Please let your friends and neighbours know about this initiative. Please also let Fiona know about people who might like to come but would need some help to get to the Village Hall.  On the subject of help, please let Fiona know if you are able to help with refreshments or transport for those wanting to come.

Our Mission Charities

Following a review of our giving, we have now decided to focus on three charities for 2017.

2.4 billion people don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. That’s more than a third of the people on the planet. By donating £60 to twin your toilet, you help those in desperate poverty to have access to a proper latrine, clean water and the information they need to be healthy. Your smallest room becomes the proud owner of a certificate, complete with a colour photo of its twin and GPS coordinates so you can look up your twin on Google Maps.
