Fr Paul comes to St Luke’s having served previously in parishes in Salford and Oldham.

Fr Paul is greatly looking forward to working in Southport and hopes to make St Luke’s an opening and welcoming parish church, being there for people when they need the church, wheather it be for baptism, wedding or funeral or just to come and say a prayor.

Fr Paul hopes that during his time at St Luke’s people will find that they are most welcome and that the parish mass each Sunday at 10:30am is a wonderful way to do this.

    The last photo looks like a great advert for a clergyman, sat on the floor swilling wine !
    Sadly this church like many others has had dwindling numbers for many years and with a very small and aged congregation the new Priest has a mountain to climb to change the fortunes of this church

    Hope he doesn’t want to live in the Vicarage.
