Our worship is traditional and vibrant and we are always looking for new ways to support and engage with our local community. Thank you for visiting our website which we hope gives you access to all the information you need about the church. We look forward to meeting you or hearing from you and we’re always happy to answer any questions that you might have.

Safeguarding

St Martin’s Church 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 at https://www.churchofengland.org/more/safeguarding

If you have any safeguarding concerns or issues of a safeguarding matter please contact Revd Catherine: catherine.cleghorn@hotmail.com or 07813 117385, or our Parish Safeguarding Officer Susan Blain: 0161 969 4180.

The Church of England is dedicated to supporting those with historic safeguarding concerns. Any individual who wishes to come forward with information or to make a disclosure is encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Officers: Safeguarding – Diocese of Chester (anglican.org)

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.
