Eccles Parish Church
We are pleased to say that Eccles Parish church is still open for public worship. Our Sunday morning service will start at 11:15am.
We have a short midweek Communion service on Thursdays at 10.15am. This is normally followed by refreshments at the Place of Welcome in the Bridgewater Room (part of the church), however for the time being we have suspended refreshments until the current wave of Covid subsides.
We are live-streaming our Sunday services on Facebook please "like" us at Eccles Parish Church St Marys
We are the Anglican Church in this parish which covers Eccles Town Centre and Ellesmere Park. Within the Eccles Team our sister churches are St Paul's Monton, St Andrew's Eccles and Christ Church Patricroft.
Thank you to everyone in our community for helping us to make it through this difficult time; in the same way, we are here for you.

People of faith are constantly aware of how much we need His love, His grace, His strength and power working through us especially on these toughest of days
