We are a very friendly church in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England. ABC resolutions passed. We have an excellent Sunday School, a good choir and are always happy to see new people whether you are just passing through or are a resident in the locality. Many people come from many miles around to enjoy our traditional ceremonial and music, and our welcoming community. We are two minutes walk from Heaton Park Metro Station or the 135 bus stop. There is ample parking and we are 5 minutes from the M60.
