Welcome to the paired parish of Sacred Heart and St John Stone Roman Catholic Churches, Ainsdale & Woodvale, in the Southport Pastoral Area dedicated Our Lady of Walsingham in the Archdiocese of Liverpool.

Fr Tony Slingo, who is based in St John Stone’s Presbytery, Woodvale, has been serving the paired parish as Parish Priest since December 2015, after the Augustinian Fathers were either appointed to other Priories or retired.

We hope that your time with us, no matter how short, will allow us to show you the love of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, that is present in our parish community.  The church allows us some respite from our busy lives and whilst we are here there is an opportunity for reflective communion with God through our prayers and worship.

We hope that you take some time to read about our parish and take an active part in one or more of the parish groups or societies, or offer suggestions for further developments in the life of the parish.
