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.

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.

INTRODUCING: LUNE VALLEY METHODIST HUB
Housed in the building formerly known as Brookhouse Methodist Church, Lune Valley Methodist Hub is run by members of the North Lancashire Methodist Circuit of twenty chapels located across an area from Silverdale in the north to Goosnargh in the south. The Minister is Rev. Emma Holroyd: email@example.com
Activities presently include worship services once or twice a month, a book and jigsaw exchange on the third Saturday of each month, fortnightly Bible study, craft sessions in school holidays, plus an established Art Group.
Since the invasion of Ukraine, in co-operation with the Caton and Friends of Ukraine Appeal, a drop-in centre is being hosted on Saturdays. Refugee families who are housed locally can meet together for social contact and mutual support.
Future plans include the opening of the cafe to the public on one or two days per week.
The building also offers ample scope for Community activities and rooms are available to hire, e.g. for children’s birthday parties, pilates sessions, etc.
Enquiries are invited and terms are available from firstname.lastname@example.org
Please contact Jo Towers (Circuit Administrator) or Rev Emma at the email addresses given above if you wish to volunteer your help with the cafe or the Refugee Drop-in.
