    We are two Church of England churches,
    St Chad's (Rochdale Parish Church) and St Mary in the Baum,
    working together in and around the town centre of Rochdale. 

    Come and join us on Sundays:
    9.30 am at St Mary in the Baum (BCP)
    11 am at St Chad's

    We also meet at St Mary in the Baum on Wednesdays at 10 am
    for a mid week service (BCP).

    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.
