About Hallwood Parish

Greetings! We are Christians worshipping in two church centres in the Beechwood, Brookvale, Sutton Park, and Palace Fields areas of Runcorn new town, Cheshire, United Kingdom.

Ecumenical means that we come from different branches of the Church, to share worship and work together. We are members of the Church of England, the Methodist Church, and the United Reformed Church. We welcome people from any branch of the Church - or none!

Parish because we are a Church of England Parish in the Frodsham Deanery and Chester Diocese. We are also a Methodist Church within the Runcorn Circuit and Chester and Stoke-on-Trent District, and a United Reformed Church within the Mersey Synod.


Vicar: Rev Lisa MacInnes

Methodist:  oversight by Methodist Minister, Rev David Hamflett

URC Minister: Rev'd Ian Smith

‘God’s purpose for us’

We believe that God is calling us to be active and visible witnesses for the Gospel as his faithful people who are prepared to move forward.

This means that we should be:

  • Active and visible witnesses for the Gospel to all people by what we do and say by the way we live in our community.
  • God’s faithful people, shown in our wholehearted commitment to him, in our worship and prayerfulness and in our lives together.
  • Prepared to move forward, listening to God and to other people. In this we need to be ready to take risks, to learn new things and continue to be groundbreaking ecumenically.
