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.

We would love to welcome you to come and worship with us. Our main Sunday Service is at 9:45am; plus we have a weekly midweek Communion Service on Wednesdays at 10:30am. For more information about other services coming up including Evensong and Festival Services, please see our Facebook page.

If you or anyone in your household is showing symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to church because of the risk that you pose to others; but remain at home and self-isolate.

“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)

Prayer for Ukraine
Church Notices - July / August 2022


Prayer for Ukraine

Prayers will be said at every service for the people of Ukraine and a special prayer from our Archbishops is posted in church. It is set out below and you are encouraged to use it everyday.

God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for pease and the laying down of weapons.
We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow,
that your spirit of comfort would draw near to them.
We pray for those with power over war or peace,
for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear,
that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
