Irwell Vale - Open for Sunday Worship

Sunday Service: 10:30 am

Irwell Vale Church sits in the heart of the small village of Irwell Vale, a charming simple chapel with a small but strong community who would be thrilled to welcome people to their church. Irwell Vale has lots going on throughout the week and runs a Cafe on a Sunday afternoon which has been a huge success with locals and people passing through on walks. They are also hoping to offer more 'Quiet Days' as their location is perfect as a peaceful place to meet.
