Welcome to St Mark's Heyside web site.

  • On Saturday. 4th July 2020, all Churches will be re-opening for Worship.  With the amount of planning and preparation needed, and very short timescales (we found out on Thursday night) we have been granted a dispensation from the Bishop to delay our opening until 12th July 2020 at the earliest.  We are making the necessary plans, preparations and risk assessments and will communicate with you about our new pattern of services during this week.  With the limited numbers we can accommodate in Church with social distancing, we will have to introduce a booking system and a way of allocating seats, so do not just turn up at Church next week unless you have a reservation!

    St Marks Church remains CLOSED this Sunday 5th July 2020.

    The Parish Church of St Marks’ has been the focal point for Christian ministry in the village of Heyside since was first consecrated in 1878.

    Our Church's interior has been in it's present layout since a  major reorganisation in 1971.  We are a friendly congregation and welcome visitors or new members to our open, friendly Sunday morning Family Communion Services. 

    Our Sunday Communion Service starts at 10:00am each Sunday, but check the Calendar for special Service times.  Our Children join us in Church part way through the service from Sunday School which also starts at 10:00am in the Parish Hall. 

    There are a multitude of other activities which go on in the Parish, many based in our Parish Hall and Community Centre situated behind the Church and a major landmark in the village of Heyside as people travel from Shaw to Oldham.

  • The Parish Hall and Community Centre

    The Parish hall, which opened in 1868 was originally the Village school, Sunday school and worship centre until the Church was built and later on, Blackshaw  Lane school was built in 1903.  Today the Parish hall is a focal point for the   local community being used every day and most evenings for both Church based and Community based groups to meet.

    Both Upper and Lower hall are available to book on a regular or individual booking basis. Click here for further information.
