St Clement's is an Anglican evangelical church located in East Manchester. Below you can find out a little bit more about what we believe and our history.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
At St. Clement's, we believe that the Good News about Jesus Christ is the best news in the world. It is news of how God loves us so much that He did everything necessary to deal with our mess and bring us into His family.
Whilst on Sundays you would find our worship to be contemporary and vibrant, what we believe can be summed up in three old Christian writings: the Apostles Creed; the Ten Commandments; and the Lord's Prayer. We also believe the Bible is God's Word.
St Clement’s began life in 1880 as a church plant from the neighbouring parish of St Barnabas. Manchester was expanding rapidly as a city and Thomas Dickinson, the curate at St Barnabas at the time, along with the minister John Noyes decided to plant a church in Higher Openshaw before new housing was built there so people would have somewhere to worship God.
Thomas Dickinson became the first minister of St Clement’s and served the church until 1919. His love for Jesus Christ and his desire for others to know God’s love and grace in their lives has set the tone of the church ever since.
