Welcome to the official website of Whiston Parish Church. Situated in the heart of the community, St Mary Magdalene is the parish church serving Whiston Village and the surrounding areas.

Our worship of God and our care for each other continues but cannot be done in this building. Instead we will provide alternate ways of doing this together through the Weekly Bulletin; by making email and phone contact with those who may require additional support; through our Facebook page and by sharing a range of online prayer and worship resources. Details of these and contact details for the Churchwardens and Readers can be found further down the page.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself.
There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)


Greetings from Whiston Parish Church on the Third Sunday of Easter

Jesus said to his disciples: thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.   Luke 24: 47-48

Notes on the Readings for 18th April 2021


From Jerusalem the disciples took this message into the whole world and it has been relayed in every generation. We are the bearers of this message today and as God’s Easter people we have the task of passing it on. We pray that we might have the strength and the courage to fulfil our calling.

We say together the prayer for today:
Risen Christ,
you filled your disciples with boldness and fresh hope:
strengthen us to proclaim your risen life
and fill us with your peace,
to the glory of God the Father.


We read today’s Gospel:   Luke 24:36b-48.


We say or sing:     ♫   𝅘𝅥   𝅘𝅥𝅮

1) O for a thousand tongues to sing.
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace.

2) Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
’Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’Tis life, and health, and peace.

3) He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood availed for me.

4) My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad,
The honours of Thy name.


We pray:
Almighty God,
through the resurrection of your Son, Jesus Christ,
you have given us the victory,
give us joy and peace in our faith and help us
to serve you in righteousness and truth.

HRH Prince Philip

A church bell was rung 99 times at 12 noon last Saturday to mark the passing of Prince Philip.
This Saturday we pray for all those who mourn at this time but especially the Queen and the Royal Family.
The following prayer may be used:
Merciful God, be close to all who mourn,
especially The Queen and all members of the Royal Family.
May they know the hope of your promises
and the comfort of your love,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
