Where We Are

Why start in Manchester? Central Manchester experienced astronomical growth when it became the birthplace of the industrial revolution. Manchester is now home to 2.8 million people making it the second largest city in the UK and the ideal site to break ground for a new church planting movement for the North.

Creative & Media Hub

Now home to BBC and independent television companies to Media City UK. Its widening cultural influence is borne out by the continuing growth of the Manchester International Festival which now attracts 300,000 people and continues to draw globally renowned artists and performers from across arts disciplines and nationalities. It is the city that gave the world Oasis, the Stone Roses, The Smiths and the Madchester club scene. It is also home to two leading football brands: Manchester City and Manchester United. 

Innovation & Research Hub

Manchester has more than 100,000 students at seven universities including the largest single-site university in the country. It is the place where the atom was first split in 1917 and where one of the first stored-program computers was built in 1948. Today it is home to the National Graphene Institute and is at the cutting edge of scientific and technological research.

Diverse Cultural Hub

Manchester is a multicultural city with 180 languages spoken by long term residents. 67% of the population is white, 17% Asian, 9% black and 5% mixed race. Church attendance in the city is less than 4%.

Church planting is not only for frontier regions or pagan societies that we are trying to help to become Christian. Churched societies will have to maintain vigorous, extensive church planting simply to stay Christian. One church, no matter how big, will never be able to serve the needs of such a diverse city.
