Thank you for visiting the web-site for Stockport Parish Church.  This site will be closing shortly but you will be able to keep in contact with us on our "A Church Near You" web-site. 


A new web page for the Parish of Stockport and Brinnington will be launched later in the year so please do look out for that.

We may be updating our on-line presence but we very much hope that you will come and meet us in person  at St Mary's in the Marketplace as soon as ever possible.


Our opening times are  somewhat limited for which we apologise, but we are open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday (see below) with Sunday services held at 11.00am (we open the doors at around 10.00am)  - everyone is most welcome to join us or just pop in for awhile before or after the service (but we hope that you will join us for Holy Communion / Morning Prayer and stay for a tea/coffee afterwards).


We are  open on a Tuesday  and Saturday - from  10.30am until  2pm (including the 12.15pm  Tuesday lunch-time service).   


The  Stockport Heritage Trust is open at St Mary's on both those days  - at the same time as the church.  Please note that the cafe closes a little earlier at 1.30pm

Limited refreshments are available Tuesday and Saturday at "Host" our cafe outlet.  Enjoy a fresh bean-to-cup coffee at a very reasonable price


We also open on Thursday, 10am - 1pm - presently offering the opportunity to attend our ongoing Bible Study group,  or join in with the "Warmer Stockport" initiative.  Pop in and wander around or just say "hello". 


All welcome.






"All parishes are required to participate in a Past Cases Review, commissioned by the Church of England. PCR2, as it is known nationally, is part of the Church's ongoing scrutiny of its handling of past and current safeguarding cases. An Independent Reviewer will be looking at files relating to church officers in this parish, both lay and ordained, past and present.

"Individuals who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process, or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures, are encouraged to make direct contact with the . However, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the Church, a dedicated telephone helpline - 0800 80 20 20 - operated independently from the Church, by the NSPCC, has been set up."

St. Mary's takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously.

We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. 

You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at .

If you have any safeguarding concerns or issues of a safeguarding matter then you can find useful contact information at
