Welcome to the website for St James' and St Paul's Parish Church in Marton, Cheshire.
We are part of the Church of England in the Diocese of Chester, serving the small (but perfectly formed) village of Marton, a few mile north of Congleton. Our Church building is (we think) the oldest of its kind still in use in Europe, and we are rather fond of it.
It was founded in 1343, and much of what was built then is still here. We hope that both the building and the worshipping community will be here for another few centuries at least (but do see our Appeal pages). If the information you are looking for isn't here, do please get in touch.
