Church of England Diocese of Chester Marton

St James & St Paul, Marton

Please see the news item below about public worship, which has been suspended for the time being.

Welcome to the parish church of St James and St Paul in Marton, near Macclesfield, in Cheshire.

We are part of the Church of England in the Diocese of Chester, serving the small (but perfectly formed) village of Marton, a few miles north of Congleton. Our church building is (we think) the oldest of its kind still in use in Europe, and we are rather fond of it.

It was founded in 1343, and much of what was built then is still here. We hope that both the building and the worshipping community will be here for another few centuries at least. Please come along to any of our services, information about which is available on the Services  and Events page. If the information you are looking for isn't here, do please get in touch.
