Welcome to the website of St Ann's Catholic Church, Cheadle Hulme. The church was opened in 1952 and, though tucked away unexpectedly along a residential road, is large enough to seat a congregation of around 250 – and not infrequently seems to do so. In 2012 the approach of our Diamond Jubilee celebrations prompted the redecoration of the church, and over the last couple of years several changes have, we believe, enhanced its beauty and our worship and activities here. A new and more striking cross for the sanctuary, with a Risen Christ figure, was installed in time for the following Easter as a gift from the parishioners to their church, a new digital organ was acquired, and a number of other smaller but still significant changes have also being made over this period. It is a very active and, thank God, thriving parish – please browse the pages listing parish groups and activities – and also a very friendly and welcoming community, so if you're not already a parishioner we should love you to visit us – in person as well as on this website.
I do hope that you will find lots of helpful information on the website. In addition to Sunday and weekday Mass times, you'll also usually find the church open all day long, Monday to Friday, for quiet prayer and adoration (except during school holidays, when the Adoration rota can't so easily be kept up). Do call in for a few moments of prayerful peace. Find out how to get to us below - and what to do about parking on busy occasions.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with us all.
