Diocese of Manchester

How can a church in every parish become a presence in every community?
God’s love and the Church are there for everyone in our diocese. How can we retain or regain our place as the beating heart of our community?

Are we open and welcoming for all? How can we build networks with other groups in our community and between Churches to maximise our impact? Can we transform our local communities without changing a little ourselves?

Presence and engagement

We build relationships where people from our churches can engage with members of other faith communities.
