You won’t find Buckshaw Village Church on a map, or using Sat Nav. In the Bible, the word ‘church’ is always used to describe a group of people, not a building – people who believe that Jesus Christ is the most important person in world-history, and that his ‘story’ has the power to transform individual lives and even whole communities - see What We Believe for more on this.

Back in August 2010, a small group of us from Buckshaw and nearby started meeting together on Sunday mornings, and at other times during the week (see Meeting Times); as Christians, we want to live out and share the good news of Jesus Christ, working alongside other local groups for the good of the community. 

We have grown significantly in number over the last two years, with a lively mix of adults and children. Some of the BVC congregation would not call themselves Christian at present, but still come along on Sundays to find out more about the Jesus of history. For this reason, we aim to make our meetings accessible to everyone, regardless of age, background and any previous experience of ‘church’.

Buckshaw Village Church has the support of Methodist and Anglican churches in Leyland, Chorley and Euxton, and is led by James Gwyn-Thomas, an ordained minister in the Church of England. Contact:
