Welcome to St Anne's Church Edgeside


St Anne's Church is made up of an active group of people who love God and want to serve our Community. Our services are modern and informal and we love to get everyone involved.
All ages have a part to play at St Anne's Church and there are groups and activities for everyone, and because Church is not just about Sunday, there are lots of activities going on throughout the week. Why not join us and get involved?




St Anne's Church Edgeside takes the safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults very seriously.
Please contact the Diocese of Manchester Safeguarding Officer Abbey Clephane-Wilson on 0161 828 1451
or Patricia Bernard on 01706 218707 if you have any Safeguarding concerns about the parish.

Kath Talbot - Churchwarden

Kath Talbot

I've known and been associated with St Anne's Church since I was a small child. I went to St Anne's Primary School and attended Sunday School here.
Although I spent quite a few years living in Stacksteads my attachment to this Church remained.
When I moved back to the area I rekindled the link to 'My Church.'
I've had the privilege to be able serve St Anne's
for several years as Churchwarden.
