Welcome to St Mary's Church!
St Mary's Church has been serving the people of Rawtenstall for over 175 years. It is part of the Diocese of Manchester, within the Church of England. We have created a page to tell you more about the history of our church. We have a large congregation that represents all age groups and people from a diverse range of backgrounds within the local community. We share our love for God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit through praise, prayer, and worship during Sunday Services; and by demonstrating our Christian faith through our everyday lives.
Reverend Martin Short is the Priest-in-Charge. He is supported by a dedicated team of people who have volunteered to take on additonal responsibilites. Together we make St Mary's the vibrant and living church that you can experience today.
St Mary's Church has close links with St Mary's Primary School and other local churches, especially St Pauls at Constable Lee, and Longholme Methodist Church.
This website aims to outline the range of activities and events taking place at St Mary's Church. We hope that you will join us the worship of our Lord Jesus Christ on Sundays or take part in the activities facilitated through the church.
