    12th July 7 p.m. The plaque for the installation of the bell was unveiled and on Sunday 16th July at the 10.30.a.m. Eucharist we joined Debbie Blair and her family as the bell was dedicated, by Canon Chris, to their mum Iris Blair. Our thanks also for the generous help of John Renwick and Maurice Sutton in the building work that enabled the installation of the bell to happen.

    Although we are an Anglican Church our doors are open to everyone, regardless of religious persuasion and all are most welcome to attend our various services. 

    There is something of interest for everyone, and St. Mary’s has many families within it’s congregation with children and parents participating together. On Monday afternoons we have Baby Massage and Stay and Play. We have a Mothers Union branch, Womens fellowship, links with scouts guides and rainbows. Please take a look at our calendar for current events.

    We hold concerts, social breakfasts and other events in the Church under the banner of "Music at St Mary's" and we also have a modern Church Hall which is available for hire.

    St Mary's is a popular venue for Baptisms and also has weekly active links with the exciting learning community at St Mary's C of E Primary school.

    We are the closest church to Trafford General Hospital and patients and staff from the hospital regularly attend St. Mary’s.

    We have a Partnership Agreement with the Evangelical-Lutheran Parish of Harmala, in Tampere, Finland.

    St. Mary’s has good facilities for people with mobility and other additional needs with a disabled toilet, baby changing facilities and an induction loop system installed for those with hearing difficulties. Large print service sheets and hymn books are available upon request.
