Following the retirement of Revd Preb. David Chantery in late 2016 Wrockwardine Deanery, of which Withington is one of 12 churches, is in the process of advertising for a new rector, this will unfortunately take some time. In the meantime we will be continuing to have regular services, though some may be jointly held with other churches, details will be posted on the noticeboard.
