Tytherington Family Worship is a church in Macclesfield seeking to love God, each other and our community. We’d love to welcome you in person.

Panel 1

A Short Intro

TFW is a non-denominational church situated on the north side of Macclesfield. Since our early days we have grown into a vibrant congregation, reaching out to the people of Tytherington, Macclesfield, and further afield in mission work around the world.

We are a church made up of lots of ordinary people, of all age groups. We love God, love life, and love each other (or at least we are learning how to). Our aim is to be a church family where everyone is valued and can belong.

We come from a variety of church backgrounds, and many of us from no church background at all. We’re an evangelical church, which means we believe the good news of Jesus (the gospel) is the most important news that anyone could hear.

We have a number of affiliations, including the Evangelical Alliance – a body which represents over 2 million Christians in the UK, and the The UK Willow Creek Association.


Steve Parsons serves as the Pastor of TFW Church.

He has been involved in full time church leadership and ministry since 1993, becoming the Pastor of TFW Church in September 2016. Steve is married to Danae, and they have 2 children, Chloe and Benjamin.

Steve is also a singer/songwriter and speaker.  He has toured internationally for over 20 years, releasing 9 albums, as well as speaking at churches and events around the world.   For more information visit http://steveparsons.net



Our Leadership Team consists of the Pastor, Board of Elders, and Board of Trustees.

Their role is to set the spiritual direction of the church, to provide care and nurture for people, to empower the members to fulfil the vision, and to provide appropriate legal and financial control and accountability.

A number of team and group leaders help to ensure that the daily and weekly tasks of the church are taken care of.

ELDERS: David Cole, Dave Ray, Martin Cooper, Mike Smith

TRUSTEES: Bob Boland, David Cole, Karen Wilson, Mike Smith, Steve Clare

Sundays at 9:00am & 11:00am

Our main Sunday services

We worship through a mixture of modern songs, hymns, prayers, and scripture readings. Each week we seek to provide a life-giving, thought-provoking, gospel-centred message.

*Please note, we currently have ministry groups for children and youth at our 11:00am service only. (We hope to provide these for our 9:00am service soon).

We serve tea and coffee before the 9am service (from 8:30am), and after the 11am service, which is a good chance to mingle and strike up a conversation with someone.

If you would like to listen to our morning sermons please visit our sermons page.


Sundays at 6:00pm

Sunday evening studies

Most Sunday evenings have a focus on Bible Study, with a slighty more traditional style of worship. A different speaker each week brings a message from a particular passage. We are currently studying through the book of Romans.

1st Sunday 

On the first Sunday evening of each month we meet for a time of contemporary worship, prayer and communion. It’s a time to come and be renewed in our faith and refreshed in God’s presence.


Sunday Night Youth 7:30pm – 9:00pm

A youth gathering for High Schoolers (11 – 16).

Hangout and eat pizza. worship, a message, discussions, and lots of fun.


What to expect when you visit 

We want our church to be accessible to everyone, whether you’re a committed follower of Christ, a curious visitor, or a skeptical friend. Whoever you are, you are very welcome.

Our weekly gatherings are joyful and hope-filled, with a focus on keeping Jesus at the centre of everything.

Come as you are to TFW. Whether you feel most comfortable in a pair of jeans, or in a shirt and tie, you will find people friendly and welcoming.
