Church of England Diocese of Manchester Birkle


The Church is available to groups wishing to have an "Away Day" in the countryside. We have an Upper Room which can comfortably seat up to 30, but it can seat up to 50! Conference facilities and use of the Church worship area and kitchen and the surrounding "Church Wood" (when weather permits!) is also available. A donation of £60 per day, pro rata, will be appreciated, to cover costs. Contact our verger (David Frain) who arranges and services these events. Please ring David direct on 0161 763 3150 if you wish to make a booking.

Although we have a fully fitted kitchen we regret that food can only be eaten in the Foyer area - most groups use this for coffee and arrange to have lunch (either a pre-arranged buffet in a private room, or a full range of bar snacks or a la carte menu in the restaurant), at the Church Inn, recently re opened and re furbished' which is located opposite the church, or at The Pack Horse Inn, a 10 minute walk or a few minutes drive away.
