WELCOME TO HUYTON PARISH CHURCH
There has been a church on this site for about 900 years or more. Within the church, there is an ancient font believed to be Norman. Although the interior of the church is largely Victorian, there are several very interesting items that are much older. The chancel screen, an octagonal font located near the entrance door, a coffer, a prayer desk ( said to be the oldest piece of furniture in the building), an alabaster effigy and other items of antiquity.

This is a view of the kitchen. Most of the congregation remain behind after services for a chat over coffee or tea. The space is limited but we make the best of it. We held Alpha Courses making good use of the kitchen. Each session started with a fantastic cooked meal. The space allowed for twenty people to sit down. It was rather cramped but we managed. We need to consider expanding the space enabling more people to be seated comfortably.one suggestion is to make the North Aisle into a café area!
Although one can never say that the sound system is perfect in every way, for those who have the need to wear digital hearing aids, it is a simple matter of pressing the button on the device to tune in directly to the sound system. That means there is no excuse for not hearing the sermon!
Some time ago the people when they arrived at the church door for a service were given at least two books; one contained the hymns and the other the Order of Service. For those who attended the church regularly this was no problem, but for occasional visitors, they would find themselves completely lost.Today the entire service is projected via computer on to two large screens at the front of the church.
However, provision is made for those who for one reason or another find the projection difficult. Just need to mention it at the door and you will be given the service on a sheet. Some people request large print! Just ask!
Apart from its use in Sunday Worship, projection is increasingly used for weddings and funerals where in addition to the Order of Service photographs can also be projected, all of which makes the whole experience more personal.
