Welcome to Our Parish

Welcome our website! St Irenaeus said that the glory of God is humanity full alive. Our hope is that your experience of the parish will echo this statement of faith.

This community of believers in Pendle is gathered from three great parishes - Holy Saviour in Nelson, Sacred Heart in Colne, and SS Peter & Paul in Barrowford - that have now become the parish of the Good Shepherd.

These are very exciting times for our parish which is expanding in many different ways. It is very important that Christ is at the centre of all that we do and that we allow the Holy Spirit to inspire us as we try to follow our good shepherd.

Whoever you are, welcome to our parish. Whether you are visiting the area, thinking about coming back to church, or just having a look, you are welcome to be part of our family.

Please contact us if there is anything that we can do to help and please keep us in your prayers as we will keep you in ours. May God the Father bless you, give you the peace of Christ and the gifts of the Holy Spirit that you need at this time.

Craven Sports Family Fun Day
Posted on 18th September

The altar servers and families had a fun day out on Saturday 30 August. Due to the school holidays the group was small compared to other events held in the past. That didn't spoil our enjoyment of the day. The only damp spirits were the ones in the swimming pool.
