Church Partners

Now is the time for the Church across the region to stand together

Festival Manchester is much more than a one-off event. It is an 18-month process aimed at bringing region wide transformation and introducing people to Jesus. Our strength as the church is in our unity. Together the united Church across the region will be part of something bigger than what one church, one person or one organisation can see on their own. Now is the time to see hundreds of churches, regardless of denomination, from across Greater Manchester and the North West coming together in significant united prayer, friendship evangelism training and social action across our region.
