Church of England Diocese of Manchester St. Peter Blackley

St Peter, Blackley

St Peter's church was built in 1844. 

Following advice from Public Health England and the Church of England, we have had no option but to immediately suspend all church services and activities to play our part in the fight against this virus.

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:

• Open our buildings at set times for those want to pray. As of 24 March 2020 this will no longer be possible but please join us for our virtual events. For more information see the "Services and events" page.

• 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, @blackleycofe, on 0161 264 9982 or by email [email protected]

The church can be reached on foot from Blackley Village or from Hill Lane and French Barn Lane to the rear of the graveyard. If you would like to come by car, there is parking available next to the church for those with limited mobility problems, reached by Lion Brow. However, Lion Brow can be quite bumpy so it is better to park at the rear on Hill Lane if possible and approach the church through the gate in the wall. Use post code M9 6PE to park here.

"The parish of Blackley: St Peter is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Manchester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services."

A warm welcome is extended to all.

As part of the Blackley Church partnership, locally known as the Blackley 3, a very warm welcome is also available at St Paul's and St Andrew's. Details of events at our two sister churches are also included on this site. Please feel free to come along to any of the Blackley 3 churches we would be delighted to see you.
