Welcome + Worship + Witness


A very warm welcome to Bolton Priory

The Priory is an Anglican Church within the Diocese of Leeds where Christians have worshiped since 1154

It is a place where time and eternity meet and where one can encounter both heaven and earth within our walls and worship

The Reformation is a daily backdrop for our lives and, fittingly, our worship is centred round the Book of Common Prayer 1662. All are most welcome to join our Sunday and mid-week worship

Bolton Priory is home, not only to our worshippers, but to all our many visitors

The Priory welcomes those seeking peace and tranquillity in their busy lives.

Those who are heavy laden or who simply want time and space to pray and be silent

Those who are on holiday or who simply stumble across this sacred space

We welcome those of any faith, race, ethnicity, gender or spirituality.

We celebrate human diversity and are committed to seeking social justice and to preserving God’s creation

We welcome all God’s children   

Reverend Nicholas Mercer, Rector of Bolton Abbey
