A place to be with God
For centuries, we’ve been gathering together for regular worship. Our style on a Sunday dignified, relaxed and friendly. It is largely traditional (so we enjoy singing hymns and celebrate the Eucharist (Communion) at most of our services), but alongside celebrating the tradition that we have had gifted to us, we also gather together in the present, so we use modern words and prayers, and our eyes are firmly fixed on the future, making sure that all our services refresh and equip us for the week ahead.
Your church, in your community
Our faith matters to us – whether for some of us are just exploring what faith might mean, or for those us all who have been on this journey for year, we try and allow our faith to infiltrate our week ahead. So as a church, we also seek to provide space for our community to meet, make friends, and, especially this year, enjoy some warmth, hot drinks and food.

What we believe
The Christian Faith is not a tick list of good behaviour, but is a journey of discovering how much we are known, forgiven, loved and wanted. As we explore that, so we find ourselves being invited to love in return, and join God in his work of bringing light and goodness to all places and all people.
The Church of England encompasses a wide range of ways of expressing that, and providing the space for people to reflect on what faith in Christ might mean. More information can be found here: https://www.churchofengland.org/our-faith/what-we-believe.
We would describe ourselves as a Liberal Anglo-Catholic Parish welcoming all ages and stages into a vibrant and loving community of faith.

It was wonderful to welcome KS1 and KS2 into church today as we brought the Easter term to a close. The pupils did the readings beautifully - so confident and clear, and in front of such a huge audience too! Then the Year 3s did the prayers, and again, they were...
We are gathering together today to say goodbye to one of our much loved members of our communities. One of the things he is remembered for is his ability to make anything work and build things out of stuff others might throw away. Pictured above is 'Burt's Cross' -...
So as is the tradition at Altrincham CE School, in the week before the Easter Holidays pupils and parents are busily preparing some Easter Bonnets ready to parade them around John Leigh Park in aid of Marie Curie. And what a great year it turned out to be! There were...
