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 Saints’ church, Weston, is situated in the centre of the village. It is a Victorian building, built in 1840 originally as a chapel within the parish of Wybunbury and later becoming the parish church for Basford, Chorlton and Weston. In 1893 the church was enlarged by the addition of a semi-circular chancel and provision for a choir.
St Mark’s church, Shavington, is a mission church, built originally as a wooden structure in 1886 which burnt down in 1892. It was rebuilt in 1894 with corrugated iron cladding. The church building was stone clad in 1975, but the church hall remains a corrugated iron clad structure. St Mark’s was originally part of Wybunbury parish but became part of the enlarged parish of Weston in 1974.
