Welcome to Mossley Hill Parish Church

The Church of St Matthew and St James stands at the top of the hill in Rose Lane, Mossley Hill, Liverpool. It is an active Anglican parish church in the Deanery of Liverpool South Childwall, the Archdeaconry of Liverpool and the Diocese of Liverpool.

 What’s on

We are a very busy church family.  Have a look at all of our wonderful events coming up.

A Hilltop Church

We have been busy developing our supportive and sharing community in the area.

We have been reorganising and building within and around our church, creating a social space for our neighbourhood to connect.

We are a Hilltop  Church and have great views. From the top of the tower you can survey North Wales, the Pennines and the sweep of the Mersey estuary. The view we really enjoy though is the future.

We have many lively and gifted people of all ages as part of our Church family wanting to bless our Community and spread the message that God is Good all the time.

We have found that no matter what life throws at us – bereavement , divorce,redundancy,anxiety,sickness- that God is good all the time and our bad circumstances don’t mean God has stopped loving us.

If you want to know more why not join us either for one of our online services or better still come along and join us on Sunday.
