Our United Benefice covers the three churches of St Margaret's (Wrenbury), St Michael's (Baddiley) and St Mary & St Michael's (Burleydam).

We share a vicar and a ministry team that includes Rev.Ruth (Retired Clergy with Bishop’s Permission to Officiate) and three Readers.

Every Sunday a service is held in all of the churches apart from on the last Sunday in the month when we all worship together, taking it in turns to host the service.

You are most welcome to attend any of the services which range from traditional Book of Common Prayer to "Lite Church" and Family Service – we hope that during each month we have something for everyone.


St. Michael’s, Baddiley

The Parish Church of St. Michael's is a Grade 1 listed building of special architectural and historic interest. The Church is mentioned in the recognisance rolls of 1308 although it is probable that a church existed here before then.

St. Mary and Michael’s, Burleydam

The Church, dedicated to St Mary the Blessed Virgin and St Michael, was built by Sir Lynch Cotton in 1769 serves a small scattered community – 4 miles from Audlem and 5 miles of Whitchurch.

St. Margaret’s, Wrenbury

Our church is situated in the centre of Wrenbury village adjacent to the village green, and is open to visitors daily. The church dates from the early 16th century and is a Grade II listed buildingbuilt of red sandstone ashlar with a tile roof.

In The Community


Our congregations meet regularly on a Sunday to worship God and support each other in our faith. They also meet occasionally to involve the community in raising funds to maintain the historic church buildings.

The Benefice (and many members of the congregations) are also proud to be involved in regular activities throughout the week (collectively known as 'Apart From Sunday' events) helping communities connect, encouraging young people to get involved and looking after some of the vulnerable members of our society.
