The church will be open with plentiful information. Any Covid restrictions in place at the time will be observed. At present it looks as if free-flow visiting will be possible. In the Church Hall there will be a small exhibition on ‘Edible Marple’, surveying suppliers of food and hospitality in Marple from Oldknow’s day to recent times.

The older part of the present church was consecrated on Friday 11 November 1870 (St Martin's Day). We had hoped to commemorate the occasion with various events, but sadly we cannot now celebrate during lockdown. The service which we had intended to hold on Wednesday 11th November at 6.30 pm will not now take place. But we hope to find an opportunity for commemoration at some point in the remainder of our anniversary year.
