About Us

To be a growing church making a growing difference

Our Vision & Mission

Our vision and mission is to help connect people to faith

Life offers us a varied mixed bag of experiences which often become the basis of how we look at ourselves and the world in which we live. We at St Mary’s want to help people frame that search for meaning and understanding – and even desire for purpose, in the context of faith in a God who loves us and wants to helps us become the people were are meant to be. We dont have all the answers but what we do have is a fellowship of support that encourages people to search and discover in faith.

Our People

We are a well-established Church of England congregation, that has been worshipping in our current building for over 250 years. Our average weekly congregations (we have three) number around 100 people and our ages range from 0 to nearly 100! Our vision is to be ‘a growing church making a growing difference’and we seek to do this through our work in local schools and care homes, running an exploratory course on the Christian faith (called Alpha) on a regular basis, having a monthly community lunch, plus providing baptisms (or christenings), weddings and funerals for those in our locality.


Through our outward giving as a church (we give away 10% of our income) we support, amongst other organisations:

Church Mission Society

Leprosy Mission

Church Army

Our Future Plans

“St.Mary’s PCC have recently consulted local residents about plans to extend the west end of the church. These are to demolish the existing linkway between the church and its family room, and replace this with a new linkway comprising two new toilets, a kitchen, and a new front and rear entrance. We also intend to put a new door into our family room, and insert a moveable dividing screen so that the room can be split into two for smaller meetings, for the benefit of both the church and the wider community.

We intend to apply for planning permission from the Diocese of Liverpool and Warrington Borough Council in early 2022″.
