Saddleworth Churches

Welcome to the Saddleworth Team Website

Thank you for visiting our website we hope it provides you with the information you need.

We are made up of six very individual parishes, but whichever church you might like to visit you will receive a very warm welcome, uplifting thought provoking worship, and a community that genuinely cares about all people.  

Alan Petford

It is with great sadness that we have to record the untimely death of Alan Petford. Alan was in the process of writing the new history of Saddleworth Church to commemorate 800 years of Christian Worship on the present site.  The book will be published in due course and will be dedicated to Alan’s memory and in grateful thanks for enriching so many lives with his vast knowledge of and enthusiasm for history.  His death will be mourned by very many people in Saddleworth; the West Riding and, indeed, further afield.

Our prayers and thoughts are with Alan’s close family in their tragic loss.

The funeral will be held at St Chad's Church, Uppermill on Monday 2 March 2015 at 1pm.
