Our mission

St.Wilfrid’s is the Church of England ( i.e. “Anglican,” or “Episcopalian”) Parish Church for Northenden, a district in the Wythenshawe area of south Manchester, UK.
Our aim is to honour God as we worship him, using both traditional and modern C of E forms of service; to share the good news of what Jesus Christ taught about life, God, and our relationship with him, and what he achieved for us through his death and resurrection; to offer support, spiritual or practical, to people in times of need or crisis, and in the normal routine and adventure of living; to encourage people to serve God in and through their daily lives, whether in their church activities, or in their “normal” life in work, family and community; to help people grasp more clearly the Christian understanding of life, the world and everything, through discussion and teaching.
Christians have been worshipping on the site of St. Wilfrid’s Parish Church for almost 1000 years and the present historic and beautiful building remains the focus for an active congregation in the 21st Century.

Prayer for the month

O Lord our God, who art in every place,

from Whom no space or distance can ever separate us;

We know that those who are absent from each other

are still present with Thee.

Into Thy holy care and keeping we commit our dear ones

now parted from our sight,

and may we know that through prayer and worship and sacrament, by drawing near to Thee,

we draw near to each other. Amen.

A prayer used  by Lowry Hamilton, Rector during WW1.

• July 2014 CONCORD Parish Magazine is available to download.

Note that the morning service on 3rd August will reflect the centenary of the beginning of the first  world war.  Details have yet to be arranged, but it is hoped that there will be some British Legion or  ex-service representation.  It will therefore not be the usual “first Sunday” Family Communion.
