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

Macclesfield United Reformed Church - History ...
The church was originally founded in 1788, when it began in the building which is now the church hall. The present church built in 1877 was a development from that.
This Grade ll listed building was a Congregational Church, until 1972 when union with the Presbyterian Church in England and Wales, brought about the creation of the United Reformed Church. There were subsequent unions with Churches of Christ (1981) - and Congregational Union of Scotland (2000).
Church Transported Back to 1876 ...
A forgotten time-capsule dating back to 1876, has been discovered by builders, beneath a memorial stone during our redevelopment programme. The stone jar containing newspapers and photos, was left there over one hundred years ago for people in the future to discover. The capsule was opened by Margaret Southern.
