We are a small, friendly church.  1 in 4 of our worshippers are under the age of ten.  But we cater for everyone. 

You can find us on Bishop's Road in Sedgley Park - right next to St Gabriel's Medical Centre, and just up the road from Sedgley Park Community Primary School (the old Kings Road School!).  Set the SatNav for M25 0HT.   

If you want to know more, or need to be in touch about a Baptism, a Wedding, room hire, another service we can offer or some information, please ring our Priest in Charge, Revd Canon Steve Williams, on 0161-773 8839 or e-mail us at  ... or use the contact us section.

Sponsored walk
We are holding our annual Five Churches Walk round the green paths of Prestwich on Saturday 30th May. We take a 10-mile country route from St Gabriel’s – via St Hilda’s, St George’s (Simister), St Margaret’s and St Mary’s – stopping off at each place for a cup of tea and some light refreshments. We go through Phillips Park, Prestwich Clough, Heaton Park and the fields between Heywood Old Road and Nutt Lane, too. It’s a sponsored walk – where each walker can raise money for any cause they wish. But for St Gabriel’s, we’re just raising money for the aims and mission of our local church. Both a St Gabriel’s sponsor form, and a multi-purpose sponsor form (where you can nominate any charity), are attached. We begin at 9.30 a.m. at St Gabriel’s. You can join us for as much or as little of the walk as you wish. But if you want to take part, you must register in advance. You can do this simply by giving me a ring or sending me an e-mail. All welcome. It’s a great day of fellowship and (moderate) exercise. Please forward this to anyone whom you think will be happy to receive it. With love and prayers, Steve Williams 0161-773 8839 or 07757 411 377
