The Parishes of Dunham Massey



The parish churches of Dunham welcome you in faith, fellowship & community

Notice from St Margaret’s & St Mark’s

“We are delighted that our churches will open for Sunday Services on 23rd August . We have to abide by strict covid rules which reduce the numbers who are able to be seated, so we will also continue with our online services for those who feel too vulnerable to attend”

Who we are

St Margaret’s, Altrincham and St Mark’s, Dunham town are two parish churches in the Benefice of Dunham Massey in the diocese of Chester. We are diverse groups of people from all walks of life, ages and cultures. We enjoy worshipping together and following a spiritual path through our daily lives. Each church desires to be a place of encouragement, comfort and affirmation for all who come through the doors, whether you are a regular church member, an occasional visitor or a first timer.

The Rev Jerry Sutton moves to pastures new

Rev Jerry Sutton - Moves to pastures new
A warm welcome awaits you at St Margaret’s Church Altrincham and St Mark’s Church, Dunham Town.

After 18 years as vicar of Dunham Massey Jerry has moved on. His ministry in our parishes was fulfilling for all and we have so many happy memories of him and his family. God however called Jerry to pastures new and he has been appointed as colonel chaplain to The Royal Signals . We wish him well.

The Process After a vicar leaves – an interregnum.
The interregnum describes the time from the suspension of the Benefice ( after the vicar leaves) to the Installation and Induction of a new vicar.  During this period our church warden Dr Sue Elves has become the sequestrator acting on behalf of the Bishop while a new vicar is selected. She is responsible for all matters pertaining to worship and ministry of the parish.

We will advertise for a new vicar in 2020 but in the interim we are blessed to be supported by clergy and lay preachers
