Who are we?
St Thomas’ Church is the parish church for Mellor and Marple Bridge. We are part of the wider Diocese of Chester which is part of The Church of England.
There have been settlements on this site since Iron Age times which offers visitors spectacular views across Stockport and Manchester and on a good day views of the Welsh Hills.
What are we about?
At the heart of any church though is the people. We would love to offer you a warm welcome when you visit us at the ‘Church on the Hill’.
We provide a breathing space where all people can come with their questions and doubts. We explore together how to live out the Christian faith in today’s world. Finding ways to see the sacred in the ordinariness of daily life.
Coming together each week to celebrate the Eucharist is an important part of our worship which is supported by our amazing choir.
We are passionate that all are valued and respected for who they are as beloved children of God and are thankful for all the gifts and talents that people offer to the life and well being of our community and the wider world.
