Where you can find us

A brief history...

Christ Church in Macclesfield was built in 1775, and is considered an 'engineering marvel' due to its rapid construction, a revolutionary use of cast-iron columns, and its capacity to seat 1800 people.

The church is currently under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, with events being held by volunteers from The Roe-naissance Project to fundraise and keep the doors open until long-term funding is secured to futureproof and modernise the venue.
