Getting here

Our friendly church will always welcome you and your family. We have a thriving Sunday School, Mothers' Union and Choir. Beavers, Rainbows, Cubs, Brownies Scouts and Guides are all part of our wider church community. The church also has a Mother and Toddler group which meets every week. The church school in our parish, Wellfield CE/Methodist school is a shared responsibility with the local Methodist church. We are always working to improve our church and to that end we are replacing the lights and have already extended our meeting rooms.  

The church foundation stone was laid on the 1st of January 1847, by J P Kay-Shuttleworth and Jas Dugdale.

The architects were Weightman and Hadfield of Sheffield who were pioneers of Gothic Revival Style.

The building cost £5,000, £3,000 of which came from the Dugdale family and £1,300 and the site from the Kay-Shuttleworths.

In 1849 the building was completed  and on the 17th of November of that year was consecrated by the Bishop of Manchester the Right Reverend James Prince Lee.

It has many interesting stained glass windows, in particular the east window which was designed by the local artist Brian Clarke. The theme is 'Creation'
