    The nails which hold the skates on the Church roof are severely corroded (AKA nail rot) and need replacement. This means we will have to remove all the slates and then replace them. To this we have to get formal permission called a faculty, which is the equivalent of planning permission. This is normally posted physically at the Church in the COVID-19 world we have been asked to post it on our website the details are in the attached document.
  • Thursday morning services cancelled until further notice
    The Churchwardens have reluctantly made the decision to suspend Holy Communion on Thursday mornings whilst the weather is cold and icy. This is to prevent slips and falls on the way to church. 10:30 Holy Communion on Sundays are not affected and will continue.

We are part of the wider community in Leyland, Lancashire.

St Ambrose is a truly inclusive church. A place where our differences in theology both catholic and evangelical are reflected and celebrated within 'the bridge church ethos' of The Church of England. it is here we hope each person, regardless of ethnicity, belief, religion and sexual orientation will feel valued. We will try to welcome the honest seeker after truth and the curious, into a greater understanding of discipleship. Will you help us to achieve this?

Services in Church Cancelled until further notice 

Whilst we are in vacancy we have to use retired priests to conduct our Communion Services. Because of this due to the risk to these priests we have reluctantly decided to close the church and move to services on line. We will live stream the Sunday Morning Prayer Service on Google meet.
