St James & St Paul, Marton
From 18th April 2012, we will be holding services in church every two weeks, in the short term. For details, see the Services and events page. Before you come to a service, please read the COVID-19 information and safety instructions.
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.
The parish of Marton: St James is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. For information, please click "Safeguarding".
