For the very latest guidance on what can and cannot be done in church as we come out of lock-down, please follow these links:

The Church of England website has updated information and links to more online resources.

The Manchester Diocese website will give you more local advice. Or please contact the Vicar, Dave Thompson, on 0161 797 7652.

When we’re back to normal… Christenings, weddings and funerals

The ministry team, led by Reverend Dave Thompson, are here to offer support, advice and practical help for those important life events. Whether you want your baby christened, looking to get confirmed, hold a wedding service in church or need someone to advise you when a death occurs, the ministry team are here to assist.

The Church of England also offers some really good guidance on their website:

If you are planning a christening, confirmation or a wedding then please come along to a Sunday service and have a chat with one of the team. Or come to the Wednesday evening ‘office’ and talk to the Vicar there.

Alternatively, our contact details are on the Contact page.
