We are two Church of England churches, St Chad's (Rochdale Parish Church) and St Mary's in the Baum, working together in and around the town centre of Rochdale.
Come and join us on Sundays:
St Chad's - 11am
St Mary's in the Baum - 9.30am
We also meet at St Mary's on Wednesdays at 10am for a mid week service.
The Bishop has brought us together into the United Benefice of St Chad,
St Mary in the Baum and St Edmund Rochdale.
St Edmund's is a closed church and in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
We are here for you at the important moments of life - Christenings, Marriage and Funerals - for the ups and the downs.
Here you can learn more about our worship and how we love God and neighbour, our beautiful buildings, our work with those who are in need or isolated.
We hope to see you in person sometime soon.

The Parochial Church Councils of both St Mary in the Baum and St Chad’s Rochdale work hard to safeguard children and young people, vulnerable adults and those in abusive relationships. We aim to create safe environments, where children and young people are nurtured and protected; and where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable for any reason, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey with encouragement and in safety.
We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults, and Church of England policy and practice.
We act promptly on any complaints made, and work in close partnership with police and social care services where children or vulnerable adults have been harmed or are at risk of harm or mistreatment.
We provide safe recruitment, training and support to our voluntary and paid workers with children and vulnerable adults.
The Safeguarding Officers for each parish are as follows:
Rochdale, St Chad’s: Angela LG Collins
Rochdale St Mary in the Baum: Andrea Pollock
