Heeley Parish Church, or Christ Church Heeley, as it is sometimes known, has been serving the people of Heeley for over 160 years! During that time, many changes have taken place in our community, but the church is still here, at the heart of it all.
This website is designed to let you know what we’re doing, and to invite you to join us. For detailed information about what is going on, please see our calendar.
Come and see what God is doing at Heeley Church – a warm welcome is waiting for you.
