Church of England Diocese of Manchester Birch with Fallowfield

Mission Statement

Here at Holy Innocents we hope you will find:


A spiritual space which is calm, uncluttered, cared for and valued

A space of quiet integrity which allows for reflection, contemplation and sometimes exhilaration


A gathering round the bread and wine of the Eucharist

Music which can soothe, restore and lift the spirit

Silences which give you time to breathe

Formal and structured, thoughtfully planned yet relaxed in delivery

Challenging, respectful of ambiguity and mystery

Social action

Inclusive, valuing our difference

Resisting injustice

Prayer leading to action in support of others


A varied mix of every description

Interested in others

Emotionally aware, respectful

Who feel free to be and not do

A constant in a changing city
