About St. Mary's

St Mary’s Without-the-Walls is situated in Handbridge, south of the River Dee, in the historic city of Chester. The present church was built in 1887 to replace the original St Mary’s On-the-Hill, now a heritage centre within the city walls.

Handbridge Centre

Opened in 2018, this new community facility serves businesses, not for profit organisations, and charities, as well as groups with formal connections to the parish church.
