With regret we are unable to use our flag pole at St Mary's in the Marketplace due to the halyard fittings  having failed.

Coming soon -  a brand new web-site for the Parish of Stockport and Brinnington...

We'll let you know all about it later and ensure you know where to find us "on-line" before we remove our existing church sites for St Mary, St Thomas & St Luke (Brinnington) 


Our Church Near You sites will reman live.


Parish Magazine -  our monthly parish magazine [previously available on line and in hard copy as requested] is no longer in production - this has been replaced by a parish email from the Rector. Please let Chris know if you wish to be added to his distribution list.
