This is a list of Christian churches in the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England.

Church of England[edit]

The Anglican churches in the county are either part of the diocese of Chester or the diocese of Liverpool. Since the mid nineteenth century, Chester diocese has been divided into two archdeaconries, the Chester Archdeaconry and the Macclesfield Archdeaconry. Each archdeaconry is divided into a number of deaneries, some of which are outside the ceremonial county of Cheshire.[1] All the Cheshire churches in the diocese of Liverpool are in Warrington Archdeaconry.[2] When the diocese was originally created in 1541, it was much larger with twenty deaneries and no archdeaconries.[3] (See History of the Diocese of Chester.)
