St. Chad’s, St. Martin’s and St. Andrew’s: a family of welcoming and beautiful churches in Kirkby, Merseyside, UK.

We are three churches, St Chad’s, St Andrew’s Tower Hill and St Martin’s Southdene, who along with Centre 63 CofE Youth Centre, and Kirkby CofE School make up the Church of England in Kirkby. For many years, St. Mark’s Church in Northwood was a much loved part of our team as well. We offer thought-provoking Christian worship, life-changing exploration of faith and committed community service to our community.

St. Chad’s Church

There has been a church on the site of St. Chad’s for a thousand years, and the stone font we use for christenings is around 900 years old. The current building dates back to 1871.

St. Martin’s Church

When the new town of Kirkby was being built, St. Martin’s was the first new Anglican Church opened, starting in a barn on Broad Lane. The current church was opened in 1964.

St. Andrew’s Church

The newest of our churches, St. Andrew’s was originally built with the new estate of Tower Hill in 1976, after meeting in a hut for a number of years. The current building dates from 2002 when it was rebuilt after a fire.
