• Welcome to the Macclesfield Team Ministry 

    A different church for these challenging times.

    Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all our churches are closed and no services are taking place.

    We are still here to support pastorally and pray for you,

    please contact us for any support you may need and we will try and help.

    A significant part of the Church of England in Macclesfield, our four churches are places where people can gather for fellowship and support, join together for Christian worship, explore faith and witness to God’s love through Christian ministry.

    We encounter God in many different ways and places throughout the week. Together with other churches in the town, we aim to grow in our love for God, and desire to see God at work in our lives and in our community.

    Whether you are ‘just exploring’, are looking for a church to belong to, or wish to enquire about a life event, I hope you find enough here to then make contact .. or come along to one of our churches; we’d love to welcome you in person! 

    With every blessing,

    Martin 

    Revd Martin Stephens, Team Rector

  • Safeguarding

    All parishes are required to participate in a Past Cases Review, commissioned by the Church of England. PCR2, as it is known nationally, is part of the Church's ongoing scrutiny of its handling of past and current safeguarding cases. An Independent Reviewer will be looking at files relating to church officers in this parish, both lay and ordained, past and present.
    Individuals who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process, or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures, are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser. However, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the Church, a dedicated telephone helpline - 0800 80 20 20 - operated independently from the Church, by the NSPCC, has been set up.

    Macclesfield Team Ministry takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at www.churchofengland.org/safeguarding.

    If you have any safeguarding concerns or issues of a safeguarding matter then you can find useful contact information at www.chester.anglican.org/social-responsibility/safeguarding

    Pauline Butterfield is the Diocesan Safeguarding and Vulnerability Officer
