We extend a warm welcome to all, whether you live in Macclesfield or Bollington or are a visitor to the area. Worship at Park Green is in our Grade II Listed building, mainly traditional in format, with choir and organ music. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month. At Bollington we meet in the comfortable surroundings of Shrigley Court. Communion is celebrated on the third Sunday of the month.
Dear Friends, Due to the current situation with Covid-19, Government advice and URC national advice the Elders have taken the difficult decision to close the Church. This means that there will be no Sunday Services until further notice. The Elders will constantly monitor the evolving situation, and we will re-open when it is safe to do so. In these difficult times we would encourage our friends and members to use the phone to keep in contact with each other, and their pastoral group leaders. We would also recommend the URC daily devotions, which from Sunday 22nd March will also include a podcast of a full Sunday Service. We hope that you will understand this extraordinary action given the circumstances. We pray that we will soon be able to meet together to Worship God, and to share in fellowship. Your friend, elder and webmaster, Chris

We pride ourselves on being a caring church - you can find us in Park Green, Macclesfield
Whilst serving the community of Macclesfield, Cheshire, we are able to look beyond our fine Victorian building, recently refurbished, to the greater needs around us. Our weekly coffee mornings have been able to support various charities through generous giving. These recently include a charity in Moldova called 'Breadline'. The Community for Reconciliation, Christian Aid, Just Drop In (supporting unemployed young people), Christians Against Poverty, Macmillan Cancer Support, Shelter (for homeless people), The Alzheimer's Society and Arthritis UK.
COMMITMENT FOR LIFE is very important to all United Reformed Churches and is organised through our involvement with Christian Aid. It encourages all churches to take action, pray and give for people across the world. Last year £550,000 was raised to help the root causes of poverty.
75% goes to Christian Aid to be divided equally amongst our 4 partner countries Bangladesh, Jamaica, Palestine and Zimbabwe. 10% is donated to The World Development Movement and 15% is kept for administration, resources and grant giving. It is the recommended way for all United Reformed Churches to respond to the greater needs of our world through Christian Aid. We are privileged to share in this project and invite you to join us.
The facilities include ramped access, induction loop, accessible toilet facilities at the rear of the church plus a kitchen area and a smaller room to the rear of the church which can be used for a variety of activities.
The church is also available for services, eg for schools and uniformed organisations, and for concerts. These should be of a suitable nature for a church setting.
The Church at Park Green has been fully refurbished. Enquiries concerning weddings, baptisms and funerals should be made at the church office - please note your call will be diverted to our church secretary. You may be asked to leave a message but your call will be returned as soon as possible.
