Church of England Diocese of Manchester St. Martin Droylsden

St Martin's Church, Droylsden

Welcome to St Martin's church website!   We hope that our website will help you to discover what goes on at our church, provide information that is helpful and resources to help you explore the Christian faith.  We are currently updating this site, so please bear with us as we add more pages to give you a fuller picture of the life of our church and community.

We are a friendly church who meet together to worship God and who seek to show God's love and care to others in our local community and in the world through our words and actions. Our aim is to be a church that welcomes all and shares God's love with all in our community.

Our services are currently suspended although we are open for private prayer on Sundays between 10.30 and 11.30am and we can also hold funeral services. There will be social distancing and hygiene measures in place to keep everyone as safe as possible. We have a risk assessment based on the Church of England advice. We will have a reduced capacity and will be placing a limit on the number of people allowed into the building at any one time - currently this is about 20-25 people.  We have provided seating at 2m spacing but are asking people to wear face coverings when in church.

Each week resources will be posted on this website as well as our Facebook page and Twitter. More resources can be found on the Church of England website, where you will also find information about the how the Church is responding at this time. If you need help, please contact our Vicar, Revd Jo Farnworth on 0161 330 4925


The parish of Droylsden: St Martin is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Manchester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
