St Paul's Marton

Freedom Church Mereside

FCM Worship

 Alongside the parish of St Paul's there is a large housing estate called  Mereside. As part of the Blackburn Diocesan Vision 2026 of Healthy    Churches, Transforming Communities, Rev’d Linda is a Pioneer  Minister and serves the community of Mereside where she is planting a  new Church

 Along with her husband Pete, who is in training to be a Church Army  Evangelist, they are using their home on the estate as a base to reach  out into the community with a mission focus. 

 Having no official Church building, they have started church services in  their living room meeting every Sunday at 4pm. Everyone is welcome  to this informal relaxed service of Holy Communion.


Do you enjoy singing? Do you live or work on Mereside, or have a Mereside connection? If so, then please come to join Mereside Community Gospel Choir. It meets on Monday evenings at 7.30pm at Tarnside Community Centre (Opposite Mereside Primary School).

There are no auditions - all are welcome as long as you enjoy singing! We are a relaxed and friendly bunch who also like to socialise together. Come along and see!


 Come and visit us most Sundays at Whyndyke  Car Boot Sale where we have a large red tent.  You can come and light a candle in memory of  someone, or for healing. Ask for prayer or just  have a chat. We even have a bowl of water for  your dog!

 It's a peaceful quite space in the midst of a busy  world.

Future possibilities include school assemblies at the primary school on the estate, a senior’s social afternoon, bushcraft church for teenagers and meditation classes for people with mental health issues.
