Mossley is served by the churches of St George, Mossley and St John the Baptist, Roughtown. We came together as a united benefice in 2016, to serve the whole community of Mossley (the historic parishes of Mossley, Roughtown and Micklehurst now being united). We are proud of our heritage of welcome and our three Church of England Primary Schools.

Come along and see what we do, and learn why! Find us on Facebook: @mossleyparish

Fr David (the Vicar) is always glad to hear from anyone, especially those planning a baptism, wedding or funeral.

Baptisms are usually held on Sundays, and a range of options are available.

Weddings have certain straightforward and important legal issues attached, which Fr David will be pleased to talk through with you.

Funerals can be held in church for anyone who lives in, or has any significant connection to the parish - the deceased may have attended church all their life or not at all - all are welcome and we are privileged to play a part at this most important time. Fr David is also able to officiate at funerals at crematoria or cemeteries: please contact him directly, or via the Funeral Director.

All other enquiries should be made to the Vicar - see Contact information.
