Tea at the Tower

In March 2017, church volunteers came together with the idea of establishing a café under the tower. Our aim was to provide the opportunity for people to appreciate the beauty and tranquillity of St Mary’s as an ancient building whilst at the same time enjoying some fabulous home made refreshments.

We were thrilled that ‘Tea at the Tower’ should receive accreditation as ‘A Place of Welcome’ from ‘Transforming Lives Together’ (a joint venture between the Diocese of Chester and The Church Urban Fund).

Progress does not stand still and for the energetic ‘Guided Circular Walks’ are available (1-2 hour walks across our beautiful Cheshire countryside). These walks have become very popular – and our walkers enjoy returning for tea and cakes afterwards!

Future dates are to be confirmed once the pandemic restrictions have been removed.

Since March 2020, our activities at ‘Tea at the Tower’ have been suspended. However, we are eagerly looking forward to the day when our doors at St Mary’s, Acton can be thrown wide open again. Watch this space!

A Warm Welcome Awaits You
