Accrington Deanery covers the Hyndburn local authority.
Welcome to the Accrington Deanery page on the website for Blackburn Diocese, The Church of England in Lancashire.
There are nine benefices in the Deanery, representing 13 parishes with 11 Voluntary Aided, and two Voluntary Controlled Church of England Primary Schools, and one Church of England High School. We are in the south and east of the Diocese straddling parts of Hyndburn and Rossendale Borough Councils. The M65 and Leeds-Liverpool canal run across the Deanery. You are never far from the hills in Accrington.
There are a wide variety of worship services from traditional high church to evangelical in the Deanery and a number of family-friendly Messy Church services. I can assure you of a warm welcome in any of our churches. Do enjoy browsing, explore the rest of the the Diocesan website and feel free to contact any of our clergy for further information.
