Statement on the closure of St Denys' Bookshop

“The Manchester Cathedral Visitor Centre Board is deeply saddened by the decision of St. Denys’ Bookshop to close after establishing itself at the Cathedral six years ago at the request of the Dean. Sue and Penny have wonderfully served the Church in Manchester for the past 35 years. Despite a request that they reconsider their decision to close, they have decided to close the shop at the end of February. This is unfortunate and will leave a huge gap in the provision of Christian resources to church communities in Manchester. We thank them for their service to the Church and wish them well in their future plans.”

BACFAD & Manchester Children’s Choir: How the Cathedral changed our lives!

BACFAD & Manchester Children’s Choir: How the Cathedral changed our lives!

Last year we were pleased to welcome four new choristers into our Choir; Angelica, Anika, Mila and Tonye all come from musical backgrounds and share a passion for singing. For Angelica and Mila, their journey to the Choir began with one of the Cathedral’s ‘Be a Chorister for a Day’ events, while Tonye frequently attended our Manchester Children’s Choir on a Saturday morning. Anika’s path to the Choir began when her parents enquired about an audition with Christopher Stokes, Organist and Master of the Choir. We look forward to watching each one of them grow and develop throughout their musical journey here at the Cathedral.
