Church of England Diocese of Chester St. Mary on the Hill, Chester

St Mary Without - the - Walls

St Mary Without-the-Walls is situated in Handbridge, south of the River Dee, in the historic city of Chester. The present church was built in 1887 to replace the original St Mary’s On-the-Hill, now a heritage centre within the city walls.

St Mary’s is usually open all day for visitors. Please check before travelling as we sometimes need to close the church to prepare for wedding or funeral services.

We hope that you can find the information you are looking for on our website: where you will find out about our church community, when our services are, what we do in them, and what kinds of things we do together.

Alternatively you may need to talk with someone at church about something specific like a wedding or a baptism, or you may be bereaved or otherwise distressed and need someone to help. Whatever your issue, we are here to offer help and support. Please make contact through the Parish Office (01244 671202); [email protected]
