A Warm Welcome to the Parish of St Mary’s, Acton, Cheshire. Whether you’re completely new to Church, an infrequent visitor or just looking for the right Church family then welcome. We have a passion to connect the timeless reality of Jesus Christ with a 21st Century generation. Not theological theory, but life-filled reality. 

As you look through the website you’ll see lots of great opportunities to meet people, connect with God and grow spiritually.

Share life together - through the many informal social activities laid on or just spending time connecting over a tea or coffee after the services.

Meet together for Worship - whether it be for quiet reflection, All Age or Holy Communion

Serve well together  - building lasting friendships as we work together serving God by serving people and the communities in which we live.

Grow together and deepen our faith - through House or discipleship groups. Time spent meeting with God and each other. 

With all sorts of people of all ages, we've got activities for the more mature, for men, for women, parents, teenagers, children, toddlers and babes in arms. 

We seek to grow closer to God, each other and the communities we serve. 

Interested? Stay and have a look round the site.
Share the passion? Then we’d love to meet you. 
Share the vision? Then why not come and join us. 


We take our duty and obligation to safeguard and protect all people extremely seriously, and we have adopted the national Church of England's robust safeguarding procedures and guidelines.
