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.
Prayer for the month
O God, the protector of all who trust in you,
without you nothing is strong and nothing is holy;
increase and multiply upon us your mercy,
so that with you as our ruler and guide
we may so live out our temporal lives
that we do not lose our hold on things eternal.
Grant this, heavenly Father,
for the sake of our living Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Based on a prayer from the “Common Worship” prayer book.
