St Martin's Church

Founded in 1867 by Ann Hudson of Brabyns Hall, worship at St. Martin’s Church began in a simple corrugated iron construction, which developed over time into the St. Martin’s Church on Brabyns Brow that people recognise today. In June 2017, to mark 150 years of worship there, the church is celebrating this memorable occasion with a Flower Festival. 

Romiley Floral Art Guild has taken on the challenge of designing the floral works of art to be displayed amongst the artistic furnishings of St. Martin’s and, in recognition of the church as an important part of the British Arts & Crafts Movement, is planning “to enhance the existing artistic designs and interpret some of the stories from around the church”.
