A Warm Welcome
A very warm welcome to St Wilfrid's C of E Church in Grappenhall. We are an Anglican church of central tradition committed to sharing the love of God, serving our neighbour and following the way of Jesus.
Through this website we invite all-comers to visit our church, either in body, mind or spirit. Those who are already part of our regular congregation can keep up to date with news and forthcoming events. Those who have moved out of the parish, or who can no longer get to church, can stay in touch with what is going on with our Friends page.
Please note that the church is open to visitors between 2.00pm and 4.00pm on Saturday and Sunday afternoons between May and October and a guide is usually available.
Our outreach includes supporting the Broomfields Youth Project in South Warrington.
For details of our classical music concerts please go to Live at St Wilfrids
We regularly obtain Visitor statistics for this website and we are amazed by the number of visits we receive, especially those from overseas. We would like to hear from anyone who is reading this page from outside of our parish, particularly if you have historical links with Grappenhall.
To help friends both local and from far and wide to maintain their involvement with St Wilfrid's we have now launched our Friends of St.Wilfrid's scheme.
Please go to the Friends Page for further details.
Children in Church
St Wilfrid's provides a number of organisations and facilities for children but we also recognise that some parents and children want to stay together for Sunday services. Children are always very welcome in church and we appreciate that some parents might be nervous about bringing children into church for the first time. Please don't be! Please come, we'd love to see you and welcome you to our service. You will usually find other young families at our Family Communion service.
Please come along we really would be very happy to see you!

Officers of St Wilfrid's Church frequently receive requests for record searches by email or post from people wanting to trace their ancestors. Bearing in mind the age of St Wilfrid's, many of the older registers are archived in Chester and are no longer available in church. The graveyard was surveyed in 1972 and legible inscriptions and locations recorded of graves, some of which were up to 300 years old. Since then the records have been kept up to date.
Whilst we are happy to assist with bone fide requests for information wherever it is feasible to do so, we are obliged to charge for this service. Anyone wishing to avail themselves of this service should refer to the Contact Us page.
