Who we are

Welcome to Highfield Congregational Church

The Lord Is My Shepherd

Services every Sunday at 10.30am including Junior Church led by Val Baron and Renee Whittingham. Services are conducted by our own lay pastor and guest preachers.

First Sunday in the month services are followed by Holy Communion. Last Sunday in the month we hold a youth service when members of the scout and guide groups attend. Special services are held in May and October to celebrate the Church and Sunday School anniversaries. On May Sunday (the first Sunday in that month), the junior church members conduct the service. A Thinking Day service is organised by the guide group in February and at the end of April a St George’s Day service is conducted by the scout group. Other special services are on Easter Sunday, Harvest Festival (September), Remembrance Sunday and Christmas Day, with a carol service held in December.

Weddings, baptisms and funerals are by arrangement with Pastor Dowell.

History of the church

Highfield as been in existence since 1889 when the decision was taken by members of the then Duckworth Street Congregational Church to build a new day school in Edmund Street. The school, which doubled as a Sunday school, opened in January 1891 and the debt was cleared in 1900.

Fourteen years later Highfield was constituted as a church in its own right with 18 members from Duckworth Street forming the nucleus. In September 1931 the decision was taken, with 100 members present, to build a separate church next door to the school and the foundation stone was laid that December. It opened 10 months later, having cost
£5,567, free from debt.

After Lancashire Education Authority ceased to use the school as an infants school the building was sold in 1974 and the following year the church was modified into a dual-purpose building. It reopened and was rededicated in October 1975.   Edit
