Tarporley Parish Church


    St Helen’s Church, in the centre of the village, serves the community of Tarporley.

    The church is open for regular Sunday worship, and during the week, offering a place of peace and prayer.

    Our Vision

    We commit ourselves to worship God, and to serve Him in our community and the wider world; to grow in faith, as followers of Jesus Christ; and to reach out to share the Good News with others.

    We aim to be a church which welcomes all, with services for all ages.

    One Parish, Three Churches 

    The parish includes the churches of St Thomas’, in the village of Eaton; and St John and The Holy Cross, in Cotebrook and Utkinton.

    Services and Activities

    Creativity Week October 5th to 11th

    Through the creativity and hard work of our congregation St Helen’s was transformed into seven colourful activity stations. Throughout the week our local primary schools and uniformed groups joined us for both fun and reflection. During the course of the week we welcomed over 450 young people and it was wonderful to see them reflecting upon and engaging with both God’s and their own creativity.

    Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make our week a success: those who had ideas, made or lent things, helped set up our displays or volunteered to welcome people throughout the week and everyone who helped with the clean up afterwards.  Also a big thank you to all our schools, uniformed groups and community members, who came and spent time with us. The week was a wonderful opportunity to throw open our doors to others and our hearts more fully to God. We hope it has inspired and encouraged you.
