The Friends of Manchester Cathedral

The Friends of Manchester Cathedral

The Friends of Manchester Cathedral have supported our work for over 70 Years. The Friends have made additions to the building that will last for generations, everything from new windows to helping to keep the roof on!

The Friends rely entirely on subscriptions, donations, bequests and the income from investments to fulfil their objective.

Introducing our new Verger

Introducing our new Verger

We would like to introduce our new Verger, Mike Jenkinson joined the Vergers' team on Monday 10 August. Here are a few words from Mike:

"I've lived in and around Urmston, Flixton and Davyhulme all my life. I'm married to Fi, who is entering her 3rd year of ordination training, and we have 2 children- Faith (11) and Jacob (9). Fi and I became Christians in 2002 after beginning to attend St Michael's Flixton. In my spare time I enjoy lots of creative hobbies, including making stained glass art and home brewing. What excites me about working at the Cathedral is being a visible sign of faith in the middle of a vibrant and diverse city. I look forward to meeting you all.”
