Helping young people engage with Church and Christian Faith

St Chad's and St Mary's Churches re buildings which tell stories, of faith and of the people of the town who built these fine buildings.

We welcome schools and adult groups for educational visits. We can organise a programme to suit your age group and curriculum objectives. We have "modules" prepared which cover church history, signs and symbols of faith, Christenings and Seasons of the Christian Year.

We have also delivered a programme with Manchester Cathedral on the Five PIllars of Christianity. This innovative programme explolred the commonality between Christianity and Islam. 

Please remeber that our Vicar, Revd Mark Coleman, and other minister Amy Sheridan and Wendy Cocks, are very willing to come and lead collective worship in school.

We have been delighted to welcome children from Broadfield Park, Lower Place, Spotland, New Hey and Ashworth Valley School in the last few years. We are preparing our programme for 2019 and will update our web site with information soon. We would love you to come to see us - get in touch.
