This weekend sees St Mary’s Church throw open it doors for the annual Heritage Weekend. This year we are celebrating the years 1914 - 1924 during which the First World War was fought and ended and our Lytch gate was put up in 1924 as a memorial to those that fought in the war.
This Friday and Saturday saw lots of visitors come and see our displays and we hope to see some more people tomorrow.
The church is open on 16th September from 11am - 4pm.
Please bear in mind some of the Radcliffe roads are closed for the Bury marathon in the morning and start to reopen around 11.3o - 12pm
At church we will have our displays for Adults and children, we have our refreshment stall that will be selling cakes, some of which were made following a WWI war time recipe. We have our beautiful bells being rung in the afternoon, WWi Poems read out which were written by Soldiers who came from Radcliffe. There is a local tour showing you about the church, Radcliffe manor and the Tithe barn will be open for visitors.
Our Raffle is being drawn at 3pm and to top is all off, we will be having our normal Holy communion service at 4pm
We would love you to come and take a look at our church, which has been here for over 900 years along with our WWI displays

On the 2nd Saturday of every month, the Saturday Cafe is back to raise funds for a Children's Pantomine or Party in December.

Next Cafe is on 13th October 11am
This Christmas wouldn't it be good if our church was filled with Children.
That's our Goal.
We are trying to raise enough money so that we can put on a professional pantomine, here at St Mary's for the local children.
Each month we're having a raffle which will be drawn at the monthly saturday cafe. (next Cafe July 14th)
Tickets available at Saturday Cafe or see Kirsten or Barbara
in Church - This month's prize is a bottle of wine and tin of chocolates.
Following Rev. Carol Haydon's last service with us, whilst we are awaiting our new Team Rector being appointed, we felt the need to change the sunday service time temporary to accommodate us being able to still hold a Eucharist service on Sundays.
Elizabeth Binns who is our Team Vicar has generously offered to lead our services and even though she's good, as she has another 2 services to also lead at other places of worship on sundays, she's unable to be at 2 places at once so we are starting our service one hour earlier .
Sunday services will therefore be held at 9.30am until further notice at St Mary's with the exception of the first Sunday of every month when we have visiting clergy and the service at 10:30
Vestry Hour has changed to Sundays 10.30 - 11.30
Pop down after the Sunday Service to discuss any Baptism or Wedding plans or questions you may have.

on the Flooding.
