Church of England Diocese of Manchester St. James and Emmanuel Didsbury

Emmanuel Didsbury

A diverse and thoughtful community of Christians who believe in a church for everyone and have a real and lively faith.  

We believe in a church which welcomes, accepts and serves all people. We do not discriminate on any level, including: economic power, gender, gender identity, mental health, mental ability, physical ability, race or sexuality.

*   We value belonging

We are scripturally faithful, seeking to proclaim the good news of Jesus afresh for each generation and in the power of the Holy Spirit, allowing all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of God.

*  We value believing

We support people in their personal journey. Following Jesus is exciting, transforming and challenging. We help people to respond creatively to God as they express his love through local and international projects, the arts and community involvement.

*  We value becoming

Our shared values enable our church to become the tree Jesus talked about in his parable: a place where people can shelter in its branches, experience the transforming power of God’s love and take this message out to the world.
