Welcome to St Mark's Heyside web site.

  • St Marks’ Church is now CLOSED.

    Following the broadcast by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, on Saturday 31st October 2020 we are sorry to say that all Places of Worship will be closed from Thursday 5th November 2020.  We now know that we can re-open on Sunday 6th December 2020 and will update this information in the coming days.

    We will be broadcasting an ON-LINE service, this weekend for our Congregation and they will cease when we return to Church.  These services will also be available on DVD for those members of our congregation that don't have the internet.  Contact John Corbishley to be included.  

    We would like to thank those who have worked so hard to enable services to return to Church and thank all of you who atttended Church over the last 3 months.  We will return to Church as soon as we are able.


     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.
