St Michael’s is a community of people on a journey.  We have not got to where we are going yet, but we travel together with real hope.  Do not think that we have all the answers, as we don’t. We just know that we have found something that has touched our lives - and it is changing us.  This ‘something’ is, of course, the life and teaching of Jesus Christ.  His teaching and wisdom has the potential to change us and our world.  Sadly, Christians have often ignored his most powerful teachings on love, justice and forgiveness.  We are eager not to do the same. We invite anyone to join us on our journey, and to find with us what it means to be in touch with the God of all things. Our home is the magnificent church building of St Michael’s which is at the heart of Macclesfield; in the Marketplace and next door to the Town Hall. St Michael’s Church is part of the Macclesfield Team Ministry. For more information about the Team, its clergy and other churches please click here.
Our church service survey ... A small group has been meeting to explore how we might develop our worship at St Michael’s. The aim is to help strengthen our fellowship and consider how we might draw more people into a sense of belonging to the whole church family.  We’d like to know what aspects of our shared worship you particularly value, to ensure that any changes we might make build on our strengths and develop our services in as positive way as possible.  If you would like to complete our online survey please click here.  Thank you. What’s going on? One of Macclesfield’s best kept secrets is the amount of social action being provided by small local organisations many of which are supported by HOPE in NE Cheshire or churches which are members of HOPE, and the huge amount of volunteering to provide help where it’s needed.  Click the link below to read the ‘What’s going on?’ 8 page leaflet.

Our Safeguarding Policy. St. Michael’s takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England’s robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures here. We also have our own additional information specifically relevant to St Michael's.  This is available here. 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. If you have any safeguarding concerns or issues of a safeguarding matter then you can find useful contact information here. To contact the Diocesan Safeguarding and Vulnerability Officer use this email address:  or telephone     01928 718834 ext 221 or 0303 003 1111
