Church History

It was founded in 1794 and closed in 1982.
'As early as 1790 the enterprising Charles Ethelston, the founder Minister of St Paul's ,Turner Street , obtained a concession from the Warden and Fellows to erect, at his own expense, a Chapel of Ease to serve the large area of no-man's land between the ancient Parish Churches of Manchester and Prestwich. This chapel, which became St Mark's, Cheetham was built amongst the cotton merchants' houses which formed that desirable hamlet. The chapel was consecrated on 24th July 1794.'
