  • Wed
    Unitarian Chapel, King Edward Street, Macclesfield


    Macclesfield Quakers hold meetings twice a month.

    You're invited to join us for Meeting for Worship at the beautiful King Edward Street Unitarian Chapel.

    The Quaker Way is firmly based in the belief that everyone has equal access to the Divine.

    Simple, silent group communion with the Divine - however it is thought of - is at the core of the British Quaker Way.

    There is no service and no priest, just the willingness to directly experience the Sacred as a group, rather than through a mediated service or personal meditation.

    During this simple yet rich worship, anyone may be deeply moved by the Spirit to speak, enriching the silence rather than interrupting it.

    Meeting for Worship begins at 2.30pm for one hour, followed by refreshments and informal discussion.

    The chapel provides a wheelchair ramp for access from the street, a loop system for the hearing impaired, and accessible toilet facilities. There is ample car parking across the road."

    Quaker Meeting for worship is held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month at the Unitarian Chapel on King Edward Street from 2.30-3.30pm.

    Macclesfield Rotary Club’s 44th Annual Charities Bazaar – for local charities – opens its doors on Saturday 2nd November – and runs between 9.30 am and 1.30 pm at St Michael’s Parish Church, Market Place, Macclesfield.

    There will be many stalls, stands and festive fare with coffee, tea and an early breakfast available. 

    Mary Grant, from the Rotary club of Macclesfield Castle who have been running the event for 20 years, said ” This is a great opportunity for local charities to sell their wares and local people to pick up a bargain and bring the children to meet Santa Claus. Come and join in to buy your Christmas Cards and presents.”

  • Thu
    6:00 pmMarket Place, Macclesfield

    Everyone is invited to gather together in Macclesfield Market Place, on Thursday 5th December at 6pm, in memory of loved ones, to sing carols and reflect on their memories at what can be a challenging time of year.

    Helena Gowler, Community Engagement Officer for Macclesfield Town Council said ‘Christmas can be really tough when you someone you love is no longer here to share it with. It is such a busy time and sometimes it can feel like your loved one has been forgotten. The Tree of Light gives people the opportunity to come together and remember the people they love, together.’

    On the lead up to the event, people are invited to write a message on a star which will be hung on the tree before the get together. Stars can be collected from the Visitor Information Centre, St Michael’s Church and the Macclesfield Cemetery Office. They will be available from Monday 14th October but must be returned to one of these hubs by Monday 11th November so that they can be prepared and hung on the tree.

    People are encouraged to come along to the event on the 5th December to see all of the memory stars on the tree, to join in with the carols led by All Hallows Catholic College, and reflect in memory of someone special.

    For any queries, please contact Helena Gowler at Macclesfield Town Council on or 01625 374142.
