The Metropolitan Congregation

- serving and celebrating the LGBT communities of Manchester and the North West

Open Church on Thursdays


The church is open every Thursday morning between 10am and 12 noon for quiet reflection.

This is an opportunity - 

  • to rest in a peaceful atmosphere,
  • spend time with your own thoughts,
  • light a candle,
  • say a prayer,
  • or chat to a minister – it’s normally staffed by Andy our Pastor, or an Elder (from the URC), each week if you need a listening ear.

Do feel free to pop in and gently come to a halt in warm and welcoming surroundings for a few quiet moments away from the demands and pressures of a busy life.

To check our location, please go to About Us > Find Us in the top-level menu.
