A church is community of Christians fully integrated with and serving their local neighbourhood. Church members are involved in all manner of roles, groups, charities and activities in our parish of Partington & Carrington. For example we have strong links with our local primary and secondary schools, other local churches, The Fuse, South Trafford Foodbank, youth groups and local community groups. The church buildings themselves are also a key centre of the community where local groups meet for many different social activities, neighbourhood meetings and charity work. Daily people also visit the tranquil and well-kept churchyard to remember loved ones or to take a moment to enjoy the peace and space.

Leaders and members of St. Mary’s Church also work with our friends from other Christian churches in the parish and beyond, to support and pray for each other and to work together be a witness for Jesus in our community.

In this section of our website you can find out some of the work of the church in our community, how to book and use the church buildings for your own activity or children's party, and something of the history of our churches.
