We welcome worshippers, students and visitors from the local community and from all over the world, here at Holy Innocents', with a significant group of Iranian (Farsi speaking) Christians worshipping with us, as well as native Polish, Italian and Spanish individuals.
We warmly welcome people from all Christian traditions to join us in worship, as well those simply seeking a sacred space.
We are a part of the Inclusive Church Network, and believe that God loves every part of creation, celebrating diversity as God’s image expressed in myriad ways. We have a hearing loop, accessible ramps, gluten free wafers and can provide large print service sheets.
Anyone living within our parish boundaries is welcome to celebrate important moments in their families lives, such as births, deaths and marriages, whether or not you attend church regularly. If you and/or your family have an historical connection with the parish of St James, Birch or Holy Innocents you are also very welcome to celebrate those important moments with us.
Drop in on Sunday morning (10am - 11.30am) or give the parish church number a ring on 0161 224 0535 and we will be happy to help. You might also like to explore these pages:
