For almost 900 years St Wilfrid's Church has been at the heart of the community of Grappenhall. It has been the focus for celebrations, worship and community events for generations of people. NOW IS THE TIME to see changes to the building which will benefit future generations and YOU can be part of that exciting development.  


  A SAFE SPACE for children to play and worship.
A cafe for residents and visitors alike.
A flexible meeting room.
Come and see what has been achieved.



We want our building to be ACCESSIBLE AND FIT FOR PURPOSE for a whole range of people. Older residents will have a new outdoor courtyard by the reffreshments area and the toilets, children will be able to use it as a classroom when visiting the church with their school. Once we can open more fully after infection rates go down, visitors will find somewhere to have a bite and get a cup of tea. 




Offering hospitality is at the heart of our welcome and service to the community. We want a building that will be part of our MISSION AND OUTREACH as we share the love of Jesus. This exciting project will be a legacy for the community for generations to come.



So where are these new facilities?

Look round the tower for the annexe on the hidden side of the church, with a flexible welcome/discovery room, refreshment area, service and storage area with toilets. 

Time for Action

Our 900 year old building has many architectural features which show how previous generations have cherished and enhanced it to meet the needs of their time.  We celebrated its 900 years of service to the people of Grappenhall by Bishop Mark's blessing of the new annex in October 2021. 

YOU can help

There are still payments to be made.  The Annexe will need equipment and furnishings to operate fully so please help fund this very worthwhile project. 

YOU can ensure that St Wilfrid's meets the needs of current and future generations. 

YOU can make a contribution to the evolving heritage of Grappenhall.

YOU can leave a lasting legacy for future generations to enjoy.
