A Message From The Rector
Welcome to St Werburghs Church. I'm glad you found us, our Vision is Knowing, Growing and Going with God. and I would like to invite you to join us to know, grow, and go with God. It is through our prayers, and through the Eucharistic feast, that we bear witness to the mystery of the Incarnation and to Jesus' redemption of the world through His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection. It is in the Incarnate Jesus Christ that we see the enfleshment of Divine love for the world, and it is our prayer that we be made worthy of the gift of salvation promised to all who believe and follow in the way of Jesus.
We are an Anglican parish in the Diocese of Manchester, founded in 1900 in Chorlton.
You don't have to be a member of the Anglican Church to participate in worship at St Werburghs. We invite everyone who enters our doors to come forward to the altar at the time of communion to receive a blessing. The reception of Holy Communion is for those who are baptized, and if you would like to be initiated into the Christian community through baptism, or to explore the Christian faith at any level, please don't hesitate to speak to me.
At St. Werburghs we are delighted to meet and welcome newcomers and visitors, but we promise not to overwhelm you. Our siespeople will give you an ordor of service, and they will be happy to answer any questions you have.
At the end of the Service, the lay servers and I will greet people at the back of the church. We also welcome you to join us after the service for coffee and refreshments. Coffee hour provides an opportunity to meet people, and our parishioners are always happy to greet newcomers.
Beyond the Church services, St Werburghs offers Baptisms (christening) weddings and pastoral support. You'll find some of our upcoming activities on our website, but the best way to find out what's going on is to come to church on Sunday morning.
In our parish you will find people of all ages and all walks of life who hold in common a love for engaging the mystery of God through the historic Anglican faith and practice of the Church.
I invite you to come and see what makes this place so very special. I will be visiting your home very soon to say hello to you.
