My son and daughter attended the pre christening class- very informative and well planned. The christening itself was conducted on a Sunday afternoon outside of the usual service hours. All were made to feel welcome.

If you a driving between Derby and Stoke, take a detour to Cheadle to visit this example of Victorian Gothic Revival. Designed by A W N Pugin and financed the Earl of Shrewsbury, this church is beautiful but also a bit over the top.

I have to say, half forgotten my me. I took a friend to “Pugin’s Gem” (St. Giles R.C. Church) in Cheadle, Staffs recently and she was absolutely blown away by it. It was many years since I had attended mass there, and, as is usual,...More

St Giles is a beautiful church. It has amazing architecture and a proud history. It's well signposted as Pugins Gem so it's easy to find and there is plenty of car parking on the main town car park which is only 5 minutes walk away.
