Where do we meet...
We meet at 10.30am most Sundays at Manchester High School for Girls, Grangethorpe Road, Fallowfield, Manchester, M14 6HS, close to both Platt Fields Park and the Fallowfield Campus of the University of Manchester (Owens Park).
On those Sundays when we do not meet at the school we usually meet at Kingsburn Hall, 814 Burnage Lane, Manchester, M19 1RS. To find out where we are meeting on a particular Sunday check the calendar and click on the relevant Sunday celebration.
We usually aim to finish by 12:15. During the summer we sometimes have shorter services.
