Welcome to Tarporley Parish
One Parish, Three Churches. The parish includes the churches of St Helen in the centre of the village of Tarporley, St Thomas’, in the village of Eaton; and St John and The Holy Cross, in Cotebrook and Utkinton.
Our Church buildings are closed; let us 'Worship Together whilst Apart'.
In the Church year we have now entered the period known as 'Ordinary Time'.
In Ordinary Time Morning Prayer changes each weekday.
Compline remains reassuringly the same.
Please click on the links below, and each week I will endeavour to add some images and reflections on the Sunday Bible Readings so that we can continue to worship together even whilst apart.

We are fortunate to live in a community where we all watch over and help each other.

Should anyone who is staying at home, or feeling vulnerable or anxious, welcome a visit, phone-call or help with provisions please get in touch.
These are anxious times for everyone but we face them together and firm in our faith in a God who continues to hold us in his everlasting arms.
