Sefton Parish Church Archive

As Sefton Church is now part of a team ministry with St Oswalds, a new combined website is to be launched by the PCC.


The number of visitors to this site is still reasonably high with the main area of interest being the building, therefore this site will remain as an archive. Thank you for visiting over the last few years and hope you will visit the new website when it becomes available.


Access to all areas has been diverted to the A Church Near You site apart from the Media, Buildings, Research and Friends pages. In the meantime, click below to contact the church

an imageSefton Church is dedicated to St Helen and has been a place of continuous Christian worship for more than 800 years.

Sefton Parish Church is one of the oldest Christian sites on Merseyside and is the only Grade I listed building in the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton.

If you have never visited Sefton Church I hope you can do so soon. Sefton Parish Church received 3 stars in Simon Jenkins book ‘England’s Thousand Best Churches’ in which he describes Sefton as ‘more than an oasis.’ Marvelling at this glorious building may you also catch a glimpse of the Glory of God and be renewed in body, mind and spirit. See the Church Building section to arrange a visit.

In 2009 Sefton Parish Church was awarded the Marque of Excellence by the North West Multi-Faith Tourism Association.

Today Sefton continues to be a living centre of Christian worship and we aim to be an inclusive church where everyone can feel respected and at home. A warm welcome awaits you and we hope that this website will encourage you to come and visit us.
