Church of England Diocese of Chester Great Budworth

St Mary & All Saints

Covid 19 Emergency

Access is limited to private prayer Wednesdays 11am to 4pm and Sunday 1pm to 4pm. and limited Sunday services please contact us for details.

Under normal circumstances the church is open every day of the year, and from comments in our visitor books we know how important this is, together with the peace and tranquillity of this ancient but living building in the heart of the parish. And it is precisely this openness that is at the heart of our faith as Christians, and which should be reflected in our buildings, our worship and our welcome of all who come through the door or via the Internet.

Great Budworth is a large rural parish, made up of a number of distinct communities, and the church tries to reach out to all within our parish. Physically the church dominates the village of Great Budworth itself, and many visitors are drawn by its imposing architecture and impressive history, but it is our hope and prayer that all who visit our church, regardless of their initial purpose, may find something of God’s love and peace within its walls.

May God’s blessing be always with you.

The Reverend Alec Brown

Due to the social distancing advice, we are having to limit the number of people who can
attend each service. We ask that you inform us by the Friday prior to the Sunday services if
you intend to come along and to which service if there is more than one on that day. This is
not how we would wish to work, but we have to follow government guidance. The limits we
have set are 20 in number for 8.00am Holy Communion
Welcome to our worship, members of other Christian denominations are very welcome to receive Holy Communion in this Church. If you find kneeling difficult, please remain standing to receive Communion. If you would prefer to receive a blessing, please just cross your arms in front of your chest when you come to the altar
