Welcome to the Parish of the  Sacred Heart, Whaley Bridge, website! We hope you find it informative and helpful.


The Parish of the Sacred Heart is located in the northeastern corner of the Shrewsbury Diocese, and centred in the town of Whaley Bridge. The parish boundary embraces the towns of Whaley Bridge, Bridgemont, Furness Vale, Newtown, Disley as well as villages of Fernilee, Buxworth and Kettleshulme.

Recent changes now mean that the parish no longer has a resident priest. Pastoral care is being administered by priests from the parish of Our Lady and St Christopher in Romiley, Stockport.

    Though there have been no official guidance updates since last year, Covid continues to remain a threat, especially to those with underlying health issues. Anyone testing positive or displaying Covid symptoms should not attend Mass.

    Hands should be sanitised when entering the church.

    Place cards are available in the porch should you wish others to respect your space inside the church.

    The wearing of face coverings inside the building is optional.

    The traditional Sign of Peace remains suspended.

    Holy Communion continues in the normal way, one pew at a time, starting with the pews to the left from the front, and then the same process with the pews to the right from the rear.
