  • Welcome

    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 at 11 am St Chad's or 930 am at St Mary's in the Baum. We also meet at St Mary's on Wednesdays at 10 am 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. Ups and 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.
