St Mary's Church is in West Road, Congleton, Cheshire, England. It is a Roman Catholic church recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building. The listing includes the adjoining presbytery.
St Mary's Church was built in 1826, and designed by Father John Hall, a priest from Macclesfield. The presbytery dates from 1830.
The church is constructed in red brick, stands on a stone plinth, and has a slate roof. The façade facing the road is in two storeys. It has a central doorway with a semicircular head and a radial fanlight, and two windows also with semicircular heads. At the top is a pediment containing a niche with a statue of the Virgin Mary. The east end is slightly polygonal. Inside the church is a tripartite screen carried on Ionic columns. The authors of the Buildings of England series comment that, apart from the niche containing the statue, it is similar to a Methodist church of the time. The presbytery also has a doorway with a semicircular head and a radial fanlight. Its windows are sashes.
