Where the church is today, in these troubled times.
And probably, should always be…


This is what we look like from the outside…


And on the inside…


The Flower Festival impinges on the organ..


Bank Top – A centre of fashion, obviously…


Some of the things we get up to!

Bank Top Church – there are no strangers here, just friends you’ve not met yet.

Who we are…

We’re a family church, quite informal and we like a good sing. We come together to praise God each Sunday at 10:30 pm.

We are a United Reformed Church in North Bolton. If you’re thinking of popping along… we’d love to see you.

We’re in North Bolton, about a mile from Blackburn Road Asda, and we like to believe we’re an informal (or some may suggest a little chaotic) family-friendly church, so we will normally have activities for children as part of a Sunday School which runs alongside the Sunday service.

On a Sunday there may be between 40-60 of us ranging from the “quite” young to the “quite” old. A Sunday service will normally last up to an hour. Most people dress informally, so please don’t worry about having to ‘dress up’! However, if you prefer to wear something more formal, that’s fine too, you won’t be alone. Our Sunday service takes place on the ground floor and is fully accessible. We also have a disabled toilet and baby changing facilities.

Communion services are on the 2nd Sunday of the month.

We’re part of a wider church, in the North Western Synod of the United Reformed Church, which covers the whole of the UK.

If you’ve any queries just email [email protected] and we’ll try and help.
