from overseas

Whether you're a Christian or not, you're welcome at Holy Trinity Platt

People come here on Sundays for many reasons. Perhaps they’re curious to know what Christians believe, or they want to learn about this part of British (and worldwide!) culture, or maybe they are Christians looking for a church while studying or working in Manchester. Whatever your reason for visiting, you are welcome here!

The Bible is very important for Christians. We use it at church on Sunday when we worship and give glory to God and there are Bibles available to borrow during that time. We are a multi-cultural church, welcoming everyone! So we have Bibles in English and other languages, some with English included. Ask for one of these (if you come regularly and we don’t have a translation in your language, we will try to get one).

We want to welcome you, regardless of faith or culture. Perhaps you’d like to attend the activities organised by Worldwide Platt where you can meet church members and practise speaking English, e.g. international cafés, countryside walks, or special events, like Ceilidhs (Scottish dancing), firework night, or the Lunar New Year celebrations.

Student Bible Study includes a group for internationals who are not confident in English. Postgraduates or workers can meet church members for a meal and Bible study at Roots, or you might want to join a family Bible study in House Groups. There is also Women’s Bible Group, and activities for all ages of children and youth. We can offer support if needed – we can pray with you, or help you to pray to Jesus yourself.

Would you like hospitality or to read the Bible one to one? You can visit a British home for a traditional lunch or Afternoon Tea, or just make new friends in Manchester. 

Email and someone will give you more information.
