If aught thou hast to give or lend
This ancient Parish Church befriend;
If poor but still in spirit willing
Out with thy purse and give a shilling.
But if its depths should be profound
Thank thy God and give a pound.
Look not for record to be given
But trust for thy receipt in heaven.

The Friends of Mottram Church was formed as a means for all people who have affection for our beautiful mediaval building, to support and contribute towards its upkeep.

The Church building is available for all and used in many ways by members of the local community, for worship, baptisms, weddings, funerals and other community events. It is a Grade II* listed building, and is part of our historical heritage here in Mottram having stood on the hill in some form for over 500 years.

The Friends also organise a number of events through the year; for example, an annual concert and garden party and Heritage Open Days weekend. All events are open to the public - if you would like to join our mailing list, click here.
