St Andrew, Blackley

A very warm welcome is extended to all.

We are first and foremost a community of prayer, hope and loving service. We may not be GOING to church for a while, but nothing will prevent us from BEING church. In the coming days we will be looking at the ways we can

• Partner with others to mobilise volunteers for those who need supplies

• Co-ordinate appropriate pastoral care for the isolated

• Use social media channels to connect and support

Please be assured that we are praying for Blackley and its amazing people. If you think we can help someone, or you would like to contact us and support our work then please do so via social media; @northmanccofe, on 0161 264 9982 or by email [email protected]

St Andrew's church can be accessed via Churchdale Walk from Crab Lane. If approaching on foot, the church can be seen from Crab Lane, just past the Flying Horse pub on the right if you walk up from Longhurst Road off Tweedlehill Road. If you are walking from Chapel Lane, you can see the church on the left, approximately 50 metres along from the rear entrance to Crab Lane school. There is room for some parking in front of the church grounds for those with mobility problems, but it is advisable to park on Crab Lane or any of the surrounding streets.

St Andrew's church has been at the heart of Crab Lane Village for over 150 years. 

We belong to Inclusive Church, which is a group of Christians uniting together around our statement of belief:

“We believe in inclusive Church – church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”

We look forward to meeting you in person or receiving your comments via social media.

As part of the North Manchester Mission Unit partnership, locally known as NorthMancCofe, a very warm welcome is also available at St Peter's church and St Paul's church in Blackley and St Chad's, St Mary's and St John's in Moston.. Details of events at our two sisterBlackley churches are also included on this site. Please feel free to come along to any of the Blackley churches we would be delighted to see you.
