About Us

Altrincham United Reformed Church is based at the Trinity Hale church building on Cecil Rd / Ashley Rd in Hale. Our congregation lives mainly in the Altrincham, Bowdon, Hale and Timperley area, with some members from further afield in Manchester and Cheshire - but EVERYONE is welcome!

We are part of a Missional Partnership group of 9 churches supported by a team of Ministers.


The people who are Altrincham United Reformed Church worship God as we find him in Jesus, and in God’s name we try to serve the communities and the world of which we are a part. And we believe God uses us as a channel of his grace and love.

The success of this local church, as with any local church, is dependent upon the level of the commitment of its people to God and to one another, the extent to which we are prepared to be sacrificial in our worship, witness and mission, and our openness to God’s leading us in new ways of being the church.

We have taken several really important steps which demonstrate these things:

  • We have refurbished the worship area at our Trinity Hale building in order to provide more suitable, attractive and flexible accommodation for worship and other church and community activity
  • We have refurbished our entrance area and this now includes an office, a meeting room and new accessible toilet facilities.
  • We now have a new hall and kitchen, built on the side of the church following the sale of halls on Cecil Road. This provides further attractive, modern and practical space for church and community use.
  • We now provide an additional weekly worship and fellowship opportunity in the form of an online Zoom coffee morning, followed by a short period of worship, which may include communion, every Thursday morning at 10.30am.
  • On Monday afternoons, we now run the Open House Cafe at Trinity Hale, open to anyone who would like company, with free refreshments. During the winter, the opening hours have been extended to provide a "Warm Hub". 
  • During 2022, we took the difficult decision to close our Woodlands Timperley building, after 50 years of worship, witness, and service to the community. This will enable us to concentrate our resources - both people and money - on our mission efforts based at Trinity Hale.

We believe these steps are significant indicators of our desire to be a local church which is focussed on worshipping God and being involved with God in mission, rather than simply maintaining the church  -  for without mission there can be no church. 

We believe that we have an exciting time ahead as we continue to discern and follow the lead of God’s Spirit.

We hope that you will come to worship with us and share in the life of the church as we grow together in the Christian faith and share in God’s mission in the world.
