Stockport (Offerton) – St Philip the Apostle

Half Moon Lane, Offerton, Stockport, Cheshire SK2

A small suburban dual-purpose church and parish hall built to serve post-war estates, of no architectural or heritage significance.

Offerton’s large post-war housing estates were built to house the growing population of Stockport; the area is a few miles southeast of the town centre. The present building was built at a cost of £12,000 by Fr Osbyrne from Hazel Grove in 1967, as dual-purpose church and hall. The building is a simple rectangular structure aligned with the south gable facing the road. It is faced in a rustic brick with rendered panels and has a shallow-pitched felted roof. Rainwater goods are cast iron or plastic. The interior is lit by continuous clerestory windows on the west and east elevations, with one vertical fixed light to the entrance lobby. The timber double entrance doors face the road.
