Northern Moor Community Church is a vibrant, active church located in the north-western part of the larger Wythenshawe estate. We believe God has given us a heart to serve the people of this area, and demonstrate God's love to them as best as we can. Our vision is to build a church which engages with and involves the local community, is not confined to a church building or a weekly service, and which brings the Word of God to the streets.




We meet together as a church every Sunday from 11.15, and our meetings usually end at around 12.30. We often stay around and eat together as a family, and once a month we have our 'family service', a service inclusive of all ages, particularly suited to children. We worship God together and listen to His word in an open, informal style - everyone is welcome to come along.

Midweek Events

Home Groups
Each week on a Wednesday evening, we meet in the home of one of our church members to worship God and look deeper into His word. To us, this is an important part of Church life. The place we meet can vary, so feel free to get in contact with us about where and when the next meeting will be.
Brew and Breakfast Mornings
Every Monday at 9.30 the ladies from our church get together at Lawton Moor Methodist Church for a cup of tea, something to eat and a chat. This is a great way to get to know one another, and if you'd like to come along and meet us, you're more than welcome - though it is ladies' only!
Bank Holiday Brunch
On Bank Holidays we gather together at St. Michael's Church on Orton Road to have brunch together from 11.30 onwards. There are plenty of games and activities for the kids, and everybody is welcome. Get in touch with us to find out about our next one.
