Find out more about the History of Huyton Parish Church..
The congregation of Huyton Parish Church is made up of people of different ages and from all sections of the community. Often after a morning service people catch up with the latest news over refreshments.
Visitors are warmly welcomed and quickly find themselves at home. Families where there are young children can take advantage of the play area in the Community Room at the back of the church.
More details of provision for children can be found under the What's On link.
Heading the Church is the vicar The Revd Canon John A Stanley supported by the Church Wardens Mr Steve Hill and Mrs Anne Wilson. The Structure management is exercised by the Parochial Church Council (PCC) which in turn is subdivided into three main teams: The Standing Committee which deals with matters to bring before the next PCC, the Ministry Team which includes clergy, Readers and Church Wardens and the Family Worker Committee which not just oversees the work of the Family Worker but offers support and encouragement.
Additional staff: Rev Liz Collison - Hon Curate and Readers, Mrs Hazel Byron, Mrs Gwyn Eagleton, Mrs Elaine Stanley and Mrs Christine Monaghan. They support the vicar in a variety of ways, most noticeably in the preparing and the leading of worship and preaching sermons.
Huyton Parish Church is committed to the wider community through: The Family Worker* Huyton with Roby C of E School and the Fourth Dimension (Charity Shop) in the town centre. The Food Bank is supported in many ways by the congregation particularly providing the constant supply of food and in the volunteers who give up a great deal of time not just to handing out the much needed food but in being a listening ear to those who need help. Network 55+ is now beginning its 4th year of existence. The group meet for a meal, which is often cooked in the church by our resident chef, on the first Wednesday of the month except August and January. details of this can be found on fb a link of which is on the front page.
A more recent venture is Shop25 part of the FareShare charity which makes good use of food which has in the past ended up in land fill sites. There are some plans to refurbish the Church Hall to make a more pleasant environment for those who at present use it and in particular to expand the provision for the more vulnerable members of our society. Details again can be found on fb.
