Who We Are
We are ordinary North Manchester folk with all the quirks and foibles you would expect. We come together as worshipping communities at 14 different churches across North Manchester. Each of the fourteen churches does things a little bit differently but we are strongly connected as a family of churches by a few words Jesus spoke in Matthew’s gospel 22:34-40
Love God and Neighbour:
Jesus said that his followers should love God with everything they’ve got and love other people in the same way they like to love themselves. This is called The Great Commandment and it guides everything we think, say, or do, and it’s a real joy to see all the different ways we live this out. We are also part of and even bigger group of churches called the Church of England.
Church of England
The Church of England is part of the Anglican Communion, which is a worldwide family of churches in more than 165 different countries. In most weeks of the year more than a million people attend Church of England services, making it the largest Christian denomination in the country. The Church of England is divided into 42 different areas called a diocese. We in North Manchester are part of the Anglican Diocese of Manchester
and share with it a vision to be a:
"worshipping, growing and transforming Christian presence
at the heart of every community,
in our case of every community in North Manchester".
