STOCKPORT PARISH CHURCH                                            ST MARY'S IN THE MARKETPLACE

                                 IN THE PARISH OF STOCKPORT AND BRINNINGTON


Welcome to the website for
St Mary's in the Marketplace, Stockport.

We are located in Stockport Old Town immediately opposite the Market Hall on Churchgate. 

There has been a church on this site for hundreds of years and St Mary's is the oldest parish church in the Borough  - with a long history yet forward thinking and looking towards the future - as part of the relatively newly created  "Parish of Stockport and Brinnington" - along with St Thomas' Church (Stockport) and St Luke's Parish Centre (Brinnington).


The  parish is presently in an interregnum - whereby we are looking to advertise and appoint a new Rector  in the near future.  We will keep everyone updated as to what is happening and when we can expect a new person to be  in post.  At the present time we are preparing documentation in liaison with the Diocese of Chester in order for the post to be advertised as soon as possible.
