Manchester Road Closing Weekend

At the end of our Sunday celebration service on 3rd March 2019, we closed our doors of Manchester Road Methodist Church.  As the majority of you will know this was a difficult decision to make.  Yes there were a lot of tears over the weekend as well as the opportunity to realise that this was not an end to a Christian witness being retained and made new in the Swinton area as our Superintendent minister the Rev’d Clare Stainsby handed the ‘Baton’ over to Kings Church in the form of a lighted candle.’

On the Saturday we had a lovely afternoon where old friends came back and we shared laughter, memories and a great buffet as part of the Open Church.

We continue to pray for the work of Kings Church as they worship and reach out to the community.
