    The Cabaret for Freedom held as part of Manchester Literature Festival and Black History Month was a great success with 350 attending and over £1,000 raised for the support of 'citizenless' refugees (that is those denied leave to stay in the UK, but unable to return 'home') Thanks to all who contributed so generously with talents and 'talents' in the bliblical sense too.

    Vestry Hour: Fridays, 6-7 pm: if you wish to speak with a priest, please call in. Appointment not necessary.
