Our Lady and the Apostles (Edgeley), St Vincent de Paul (Bramhall) & St. Ambrose (Adswood) – Fr. Martin Onuoha 

Our Lady & the Apostles – written By Dylan

My parish is Our Lady and the Apostles in Edgeley. I was an altar server for four years. The music is a real strength of the parish, they sometimes change the original music to make it more “catchy”.We also have a church school for younger children to learn gospel stories in a fun and exciting way. There are prayer groups that gather after Mass and on weekdays. My brother was confirmed in Our Lady’s and my sister baptised here. She is going to receive her First Holy Communion later this year. Pupils from Our Lady’s Primary School frequently attend services at the church.

St Ambrose – written by Fiona

St Ambrose is a community church. Once a month the parishioners meet for tea and toast after Mass to discuss the Sunday gospel and chat to fellow parishioners. A children’s liturgy group helps to get the children involved with the Gospel and helps them explore their faith. St Ambrose Primary students attend mass with school sometimes, helping to build the relationship between school and parish.

St Ann’s (Cheadle Hulme) & St. Chad’s (Cheadle) – Fr. Sean Davidson (Parochial Administrator)

St. Ann’s – written by Rose

The parish of St Ann’s is very close to my heart, as since my baptism it has been like a second family. I have been an altar server for five years. The church has a toddler group, a youth group, a confirmation group and a retired persons group, among its many groups, which shows what a vibrant parish it is.

St Chad’s – written by Deborah

St Chad’s is an elegant and peaceful church in the centre of Cheadle. The church brings the community together with a range of activities from prayer to coffee mornings. It also has many charity fundraising activities including the annual January pantomime. The parish also plays an active part in the diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes and encourages young people to go to Lourdes as volunteers. Fr. Sean Davidson has played an important role in creating an atmosphere where everyone is welcome.

St Peter’s (Hazel Grove) & St. Phillips (Offerton) – Fr. Peter Sharrocks

St. Peter’s – written by Georgina

My name is Georgina and I attend 10am Mass at St. Peter’s in Hazel Grove. Our parish priest is Fr. Peter Sharrocks. St. Peter’s is a very busy parish with lots of things going on for the young people in our parish like me. I attend St. Peter’s Youth (SPY), which is a youth group for high school students and it is held once a month. I meet lots of new people and make friends there, we play games and watch films. We have been bowling and we sometimes lead the music for evening Mass. The SPY group also attend the biennial CYMFed Flame Conference at Wembley Arena. We get the train down to London and spend the day with over 10,000 other young people from all over the country. It is an amazing experience.

More recently, the parish has started the Youth Alpha programme for all young people who are thinking about being confirmed. It’s a ten-week programme and we meet on Sunday nights for something to eat, as well as playing games, watching videos and talking about our faith.
