St Paul’s


At St Paul’s; our worship caters for the “very young” to the “not so young” but young at heart. St Paul’s is not just a Sunday morning church. We offer services at 10.30am and on certain Sundays in the month 4pm and 6.30pm. (Please see Dairy page for more details).

St. Paul’s Church was built in 1844 to cater for those living on the east side of Macclesfield. Its tall spire is a landmark feature on the Macclesfield skyline, close to the railway station and to Macclesfield Marina.

We have a range of regular worship options that appeal to all. See the ‘Services‘ or ‘Diary‘ pages for full details.

We use the traditional (Book of Common Prayer) and contemporary (Common Worship, Taize, Iona) forms of worship.  On the second Sunday of the month we have an All Age Worship with our uniformed groups invited.

Our membership is drawn both from our parish as well as from across Macclesfield. We pride ourselves on our warm friendly welcome.  We look forward to welcoming you to one of our services and to sharing a cup of fairly traded tea or coffee with you afterwards!

 St Paul’s Prayer
Father, in the busyness of our lives, may we make time each day 

to be still in your presence.
In the stillness, may we find the light and peace of your beloved Son, 
the risen Christ, who brings healing and wholeness –
that fullness of life which is your longing for all your children.
May we, your family at St Paul’s, be united in prayer, worship and witness,
as a living temple to your glory, now and always.
Amen
