Hello! Welcome to the Church of England Parish of All Saints’ Weston and St Mark’s Shavington online.
We are two warm and friendly local churches working together as Christians communities to worship God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and to serve our neighbours in South East Cheshire. We are part of the Church of England and the Diocese of Chester.
Our mission is simple: to share the love of Jesus with everyone we meet. It comes from the Christian belief that God loves people: this love is powerful and good, and is made known fully in Jesus — his birth, life, death, and resurrection. It is something worth sharing, and something that changes us for the better. So our mission is a big, exciting, task; it takes our time, effort, energy, intellect, and talents to do it.
Church is also fun! It’s the place where we come together to learn more about Jesus and ourselves and to be inspired, cared for, supported, and equipped to put our faith into practise and see the world transformed by God’s love. Church is not an exclusive club: God welcomes anyone and everyone in the hope that we will follow Christ, and sends all of us to work together with the same mission for the good of everybody.

“All parishes are required to participate in a Past Cases Review, commissioned by the Church of England. PCR2, as it is known nationally, is part of the Church’s ongoing scrutiny of its handling of past and current safeguarding cases. An Independent Reviewer will be looking at files relating to church officers in this parish, both lay and ordained, past and present.
“Individuals who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process, or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures, are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (email@example.com). However, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the Church, a dedicated telephone helpline – 0800 80 20 20 – operated independently from the Church, by the NSPCC, has been set up.”
All Saints’ Weston and St Mark’s Shavington takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England’s robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at www.churchofengland.org/safeguarding.
