Have you got children that you would like to bring to church? We always welcome children in our services of any age and are happy for younger children to move around and make use of the play area at the back of church.

If you would like your child to leave the service with one of our leaders this is also possible and we have a well resourced room to cater for different ages.

We have a number of activities for different ages:
Messy At Home
  • Messy Church activities for younger children are organised regularly throughout the year and advertised on the facebook page -

  • Youth Group - Young people from our church join with young people from other local Methodist churches to play games, chat about topical issues, explore matters of faith and to have fun. Hosted by our circuit youth leaders, this is a great way of meeting other young people in and around the Methodist Church.

    If you are aged 8+, live in or around the Macclesfield area, and are interested in meeting up with other young people get in touch with our Minister, Revd. Helen Byrne 01625 572259.

  • Once a month there is an All Age Worship where the band plays the music.
  • There is a monetary collection taken for our regular congregation and whilst you may wish to contribute, there is no expectation that you do so.
