St Paul's Church, Helsby is in the village of Helsby, Cheshire, England. The church has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building,[1] and is an active Anglican parish church in the diocese of Chester, the archdeaconry of Chester and the deanery of Frodsham. Its benefice is combined with that of St Luke, Dunham-on-the-Hill.[2]



The church was built between 1868 and 1870 to a design by the Chester architect John Douglas. The south aisle and chapel were added in 1909 and designed by Douglas and Minshull.[3]


The church is built in yellow sandstone with green Westmorland slate roofs. Its plan consists of a five-bay nave, a south aisle, transepts and a polygonal apsidal chancel.[1] The style of the architecture is Early English.[3] Over the west end of the nave is a towerless spire covered in slate. The windows are lancets with simple tracery.[1]
