"To the Worship of God by a Congregation bound by no Creeds or Confessions
of Faith who, under the guidance of Ministers equally free to follow Truth,
humbly strive to love God and serve their Fellowmen. This Church is dedicated
by Thomas Ashton of Hyde and Elizabeth, his wife. A.D.1878"

FREE CHRISTIAN TRADITION:
We are a Free Christian (nondenominational) Fellowship observing all the festivals of the Christian calendar, including regular
Services of Holy Communion. We uphold the right of everyone to practise the Christian faith in their own personal way.
Although completely independent we are affiliated to the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, a member of the East Cheshire Union of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches and the Unitarian Christian Assocation.
We have also had links with Unitarian College, Manchester.
