Tarporley Parish Church


    St Helen’s Church, in the centre of the village, serves the community of Tarporley.

    The church is open for regular Sunday worship, and during the week, offering a place of peace and prayer.

    Our Vision

    We commit ourselves to worship God, and to serve Him in our community and the wider world; to grow in faith, as followers of Jesus Christ; and to reach out to share the Good News with others.

    We aim to be a church which welcomes all, with services for all ages.

    One Parish, Three Churches 

    The parish includes the churches of St Thomas’, in the village of Eaton; and St John and The Holy Cross, in Cotebrook and Utkinton.
