Our parish is made up of St Richards church (Atherton) Sacred Heart church (Hindley Green) and Sacred Heart church (Hindsford -now closed). Our community is based on the edge of Liverpool Archdiocese on the border with Manchester. We are a growing parish with a diverse congregation, welcoming all.

Parish Priest.

Fr. Carl

As the newly appointed parish priest here at St John Rigby parish, I am delighted to have been given this opportunity to serve the people of Atherton, Hindley Green, Hindsford and Tyldesley. I have previously been parish priest at St Teresa's in Norris Green Liverpool and St Wilfrids parish in Widnes. I hope to develop links across the denominations and help spread the Good News that Christ offers us with my fellow ministers here in Atherton.
