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.

Thank you
