Welcome

Welcome to the official website of Whiston Parish Church. We are a Church of England parish church in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. We stand at the heart of our community; serving Whiston Village, The Grange Estate, The Duke-of-Norfolk Estate; Upper Whiston, Morthen and other outlying areas.

Whiston Parish Church has been serving God and His people of Whiston and Upper Whiston for 800 years. It has been described as a 'hidden gem' of Rotherham because of its beautiful setting. All who visit talk of the warm and joy-filled welcome that they receive. The Church is a place of prayer, a place of worship, a place of Christian friendship and fellowship. As a Church family in Whiston, we aim to play an active and full part in the Sheffield Diocesan vision 'to grow a sustainable network of Christ-like, lively and diverse Christian communities in every place which are effective in making disciples and in seeking to transform our society and God's world.'

We welcome all with open arms and God's unconditional love to join our friendly congregation as we gather together in fellowship, praise and worship.

We are currently in a period of interregnum. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we seek God's guidance on the way forward.

Thank you

- Poppy Cascade -

 

In Church, we are planning to have a cascade of poppies inside curch later this year- as part of our commemoration of the end of the First World War in 1918. This will require hundreds of poppies, so we are appealing to the people of Whiston to make as many poppies as possible.

Below is a very simple knitting pattern which is quick and easy to follow. We would be very grateful for your help. Poppies can be brought into Church. If you think you would be able to help out in any way possible, you can speak to Jan Teale, Maggie or Suzanne.
