Within the building of the church, we have a very good facility in St. Anne’s Hall. This is used by the congregation and has been hired by many different organisations in the Atherton area.

Weddings & Baptisms
Atherton Parish Church (St John the Baptist) does not insist that you are a churchgoer in order to have your child baptised, although such a commitment would make sense within our church family. Please do not hesitate to come forward and discuss this with the Clergy.

Atherton Parish Church provides a good setting for a wedding. We will be happy to assist with your arrangements, choice of music etc. If you are getting married elsewhere, do not forget that you may need to have your Banns (notice of intent to marry) read in Atherton Parish Church.

Atherton Parish Church is part of the part of the Team Ministry of Atherton and Hindsford with Howe Bridge and Weddings & Baptisms can be arranged by visiting the 'surgery' at Atherton Parish Church Vestry which is held every Tuesday from 7 to 8pm.
