From the Rector


Welcome to the website for the parish of Westhoughton - one of the four parishes that make up the Blackrod, Daisy Hill, Westhoughton and Wingates Team Ministry.  We are a Church of England parish with congregations meeting for worship in the parish church (St Bartholomew's) and in two of our church schools (St George's and St Thomas's).
I can assure you of a warm welcome at any of our services and hope that you find the information shown here helpful.
