Disley Parish consists of two Anglican churches: St Mary’s, Disley and St. John’s, Furness Vale, which celebrated its Centenary in 2012. We are a friendly, open evangelical Church where all are welcome.
At St Mary’s, Disley, we worship in an historic building and try to be sensitive to our 450 year heritage. However in the outworking of our faith, we seek to be modern and relevant to all ages and actively involved in the wider Church. To find out more about our church life or make other enquiries, please contact either our Parish Administrator or the Vicar.
500 YEARS OLD –ST. MARY’S YOUR PARISH CHURCH
In 2024, St. Mary’s, your Parish Church, will have been keeping watch over Disley serving and ministering to its local community for 500 years.
If it is to continue to do so for another 500 years or, indeed, for another 50 years, we need to develop strategies for the RESTORATION and maintenance of its ancient structure and for its SUSTAINABILITY as an important part of the fabric of the local Disley community. Full details of the work required can be found here:
The church looks beautiful but needs a lot of maintaining, and Disley Parish Churches rely on donations from our members and visitors to stay open and support the local community. It is now possible to donate electronically through the following link
“All parishes are required to participate in a Past Cases Review, commissioned by the Church of England. PCR2, as it is known nationally, is part of the Church’s ongoing scrutiny of its handling of past and current safeguarding cases. An Independent Reviewer will be looking at files relating to church officers in this parish, both lay and ordained, past and present.
“Individuals who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process, or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures, are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser. However, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the Church, a dedicated telephone helpline – 0800 80 20 20 – operated independently from the Church, by the NSPCC, has been set up.”
