Welcome to the Parish of Wilmslow. Wilmslow parish is made up of three congregations - St Bartholomew's in the centre of town, St Anne's in Fulshaw, and in Anchor Court in Lacey Green. All the congregations form part of the same Parish seeking to worship and serve God in the community.
As a parish we aim to provide a broad-cross section of worship and activities that will appeal to a wide range of people - from families with young children to older members of the community. Please see our worship page for a list of our different services. There are lots of new and exciting projects happening here, including a Youth Choir, God for Grown Ups, Food Friend and Messy Church. Please explore our website to find out more about us and what we do.

Results of the 2017 Wilmslow Parish Church Organ Composition Contest
A truly international field of 70 compositions was received. From these the judges selected a shortlist of 6 compositions. It was regrettable that a number of otherwise first class entries had to be rejected because they failed to meet one or both of these criteria: “ approximately grade 7 standard, the piece must be appropriate for performance in a celebration concert.”
Following a democratic vote, the judges have awarded the following prizes:
Gregory Mayer (Queensland, Australia) for “Oscar's Invention”
Donald Cervone (USA) for “Entrata festiva” and “Sortita gioiosa”
Martin Setchell (Christchurch, New Zealand) for “Oscar's Fanfare and March”
Many thanks to all the composers who took the time and trouble to submit an entry.
