The churches of St Chad’s and St Mary in the Baum are located in the midst of many faiths, most notably Muslim people.
We really value our neighbours and believe that God has commanded us to love our neighbour as we love ourselves (Matthew 22:39).
We do not think it matters which faith our neighbour has.
We also believe that many of the activities we do can be better done together.
► Supporting newly arrived Asylum Seekers and Refugees
We are the two Church of England Churches in Rochdale Town Centre and are here to help you.
