Note to visitors: The little road called Sandy Lane, which runs between Congleton/Swettenham Road and Swettenham Lane is impassable. This is due to a collapse in the road surface. There is no turning space. Some SatNav systems may try to send you down it.
Swettenham is situated some five miles north-west of Congleton on the banks of the River Dane, which flows though the parish in a delightful and unspoilt valley, breaking up the flat but well-wooded country lying to the north and south. To the east the plain rises gently to a background formed by the east Cheshire hills.
St. Peter's Church serves the Parish of Swettenham. Our church is a beautiful, listed building, set in the Dane Valley.
We aim to serve the parish as a broad church, a musical church, an active church, a church for all ages, a church where everyone is always welcome.

St James & St Paul, Marton
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.
For details of our services, see the Services and events page. Our usual service sheet and pew sheet of prayers and readings for the day can be downloaded here.
Before you come to a service, please read the COVID-19 information and safety instructions.
