Welcome to St Gabriel's Church website. We are a family-friendly, Anglican Church in Blackburn, Lancashire. Our mission is to call people of all backgrounds to faith in Jesus Christ and to enable them to grow and deepen in discipleship.
Stephen Corbett - Vicar
St Gabriel's comprises people of all ages, from 0 to 100 - single people, young families, the middle-aged and those more senior in years. Our services range from the traditional through to the informal, and we offer age-appropriate children's groups during the 10:30 morning service. We have a network of small weekly/fortnightly midweek groups, and introductory courses such as Start and Alpha run periodically through the year.
We place a high value on bible teaching which is both relevant and stretching, and we also encourage people to experience the power and reality of God through the Holy Spirit. The well-known phrase "Word and Spirit" perhaps best describes our approach.
We maintain links with various networks within the wider church, including New Wine, Alpha and Fair Trade, as well as a number of mission organisations. (See the Links page for more about these.)
Of course, a website can only communicate a general feel for a church. Whatever your reason for visiting this site, we'd encourage you to pay us a visit, and see if this is where you might make a spiritual home.
We look forward to welcoming you.
