The Church plays a significant role in the communities of Mellor and Marple Bridge and supports many local activities and businesses. We publish a monthly magazine called Outlook and over 600 issues are distributed each month throughout the parish by a friendly, smiling group of volunteers. The current cost is 50p an issue, or £5 for an annual subscription. Many local businesses advertise in Outlook and report an excellent response to the moderate cost of advertising.  A directory of local businesses is also available on this website.
