Wilbraham St Ninian's United Reformed Church, ChorltonWe are a Christ-centred congregation which serves, celebrates and affirms the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (lgbt) communities of Manchester and North West England.

All are welcome.

Our main service is on Sunday afternoons at 4.30pm. It is celebrative yet thoughtful and aims to appeal to folk from a range of different church backgrounds as well as to those for whom spirituality is new.

We offer a place to explore Christian spirituality and help people live the Christian faith in ways which make sense in our contemporary society.

We are a friendly church and after worship - which usually lasts around one hour - everyone is invited to stay for refreshments and a chat.

For many years our congregation was part of the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) - an American-based lgbt denomination, but we are now one of the two worshipping congregations of Wilbraham St Ninian's United Reformed Church.

Wilbraham St Ninian's United Reformed Church, ChorltonWe meet in Chorlton, about 4 miles south of Manchester city centre, we are easily accessible by Metrolink and bus services, and we offer a warm welcome to all our services and events.

You can get in touch via any of the options shown on the Contact Us tab on the top menu.

We invite you to explore this web site to learn more about us, who we are, and what we believe.

For specific information on where we are, including public transport options, satnav guidance, parking, and a map of the area, please go to About Us > Find Us.
