New to Thomas Risley

We were all first timers once and we know that it can be a bit daunting to come to a new church…

Getting here

Thomas Risley is located just off Glover Road, Locking Stumps, Birchwood in Warrington.

Children’s groups

We believe that Thomas Risley should be a place for all. In all that we do we aim to live up to these words of Jesus:

“Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
