Church Without Walls

Worship @ St Lawrence

We are very lucky to have a beautiful medieval Church in Broughton that Church without Walls are able to use on an occasional basis.

St Lawrence is a Conservation Trust Church . It was closed for regular worship in 1986 and is now only allowed to be used for worship 6 Sundays a year but it is available for any number of weekday or Saturday services.

The Friends of St Lawrence help with the up-keep of the church and run a range of fundraising events during the year.

Currently St Lawrence is the main venue for services of baptism for families joining the Church without Walls community. Generally we arrange a service on either a Saturday or a weekday and then the family are formally welcomed at the Cafe Church that follows the baptism.
