Community

Hale Barns is a “village” community, about 12 miles south west of Manchester City Centre and on the very edge of the Manchester conurbation.

All Saints Church of England, and Holy Angels Catholic Church are in the centre of the Village on Hale Road, whilst down Chapel Lane is the Unitarian Hale Chapel.

The community is served by two Primary Schools (Elmridge and Wellgreen), both of which have good links with All Saints Church, and St Ambrose College, a Roman Catholic Grammar School, which has currently undergone a major and exciting rebuilding programme.

Weddings, Baptisms and Funerals

All Saints is what’s called a “Parish Church”, which means that we want to be a Church for the community around us (the “parish”), not just for those who regularly come to worship here. We want to have welcoming and open doors for people at key stages in their lives, especially for Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals. Please contact us here.


  1. Baptisms

    Baptism

    In baptism, parents thank God for his gift of life, make a decision to start the child on the journey of faith and ask for the Church’s support. In the Church of England it is common to baptise young children (this is sometimes known as “christening) but baptism can take place at any age, including as an adult. “Confirmation” is the point at which those baptised as children make their baptismal promises for themselves.

    A Baptism can take place as part of a main Sunday service, when the congregation will be present to welcome the person baptised, or by arrangement at another suitable time.

    We are very willing to meet with you and talk about the service and the meaning of baptism.


  2. Weddings

    Weddings

    Today more than a quarter of all marriages in England take place before God in the traditional setting of a Church of England church. You’re welcome to marry in church whether or not you go regularly to church.

    The interior of the reordered All Saints Church is a lovely venue for your wedding, being light, flexible and spacious. We can meet with you to talk through the legal process, to plan the service and to help you reflect on and plan for your marriage.

    If you are marrying abroad and want a celebration with family and friends on your return we can also offer a Service of Dedication.

    Please talk to us about your circumstances and we will see what we can do!


  3. Funerals

    Funerals

    A Funeral Service is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend that person into God’s keeping. It can take place as a quiet ceremony with closest family and friends or as a much larger service.

    We are very willing to be involved in the funeral service whether at Crematorium or Cemetery and All Saints Church itself Is available as a venue for funerals in Hale Barns, irrespective of whether people have been regular worshippers. The parish churchyard at Ringway remains open for burials and for the interment of cremated remains.

For all that has been - thanks! To all that shall be - YES!
