We extend to you a very warm and gracious welcome from the Brookhouse church family. We believe there is nowhere like the local church when God’s presence is anticipated, celebrated and experienced.
Our Vision is to create a church environment where people are cherished, celebrated, equipped, and empowered to live extraordinary lives.
Our mission at BMC is God centred worship, purpose driven discipleship, people empowering ministries, caring fellowship, and reaching the lost for Jesus.
We invite you to take time to explore this website to find out more about our ministries, and how we might serve and help you to pursue God’s purpose for your life.
We extend to you an invitation to join us for our Sunday services or midweek events where we promise you will receive a warm welcome.
10:45am – Morning Service and Junior Church
7:00pm – Evening Service
Our chapel is situated by Artlebeck Bridge, between the two villages of Caton and Brookhouse. We meet every Sunday at 10.30am for morning service, which we try to make relevant for the needs of all. Morning service is followed by a brew and a chat, where we get to know each other better. On Sunday evenings we have usually have a prayer meeting at 6.00pm, followed by a service at 6.30pm, and this can take a variety of forms.

10:30am Morning Service and Junior Church
The earliest record of a church or chapel on the site is before 1230. The tower dates probably from the 16th century. The rest of the church was rebuilt in 1865–67 to a design by the Lancaster architect E. G. Paley.
The church is constructed in sandstone rubble, with a slate roof. Its plan consists of a four-bay nave with a clerestory, north and south aisles, a south porch, a north transept containing the organ chamber, a chancel at a lower level, and a west tower. The tower is Perpendicular in style, and has three stages, diagonal buttresses, and an embattled parapet. On the west side is a doorway, over which is a three-light window with Perpendicular tracery. The bell openings also have three lights. On the south side of the church is the porch, with four bays to the east. The bays are separated by buttresses and each contains a three-light window with Perpendicular tracery. To the left of the easternmost window is a priest’s door. Along the clerestory are four windows. The east window has three lights with Perpendicular tracery. In the west wall of the north aisle is a blocked Norman doorway containing a tympanum carved with human figures. It is filled in with coffin lids and medieval cross slabs.
Our Church Hall and Club House are available for hire.
