Vicar of St. George’s Chorley – a town centre church

  • To engage further with the many young families who come for Baptism and school entry
  • To build on the well-attended Pilgrim course, to enable people to move on in discipleship and identify God’s call on their life
  • To build on the strong links that already exist between Church and School

pplication form can be found at
