GREATER MANCHESTER CHURCHES PRESERVATION SOCIETY
was launched on 28th October in 2006 at the Fairfield Moravian Settlement in Droylsden under the auspices of the National Churches
Trust (then known as the Historic Churches Preservation Trust).
The Society has the support of the leaders of most of the main
denominations in Greater Manchester and is under the Patronage of the
Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester, Warren Smith, Esq. JP.
Its aims are both educational and
practical. Educational in raising awareness of the rich variety of
church buildings in Greater Manchester and practical in the longer term
by raising funds to allow the Society to make grants for repairs to
The Society invites individuals, churches and corporate bodies to become
members on payment of an annual subscription. In return the Society
will issue a regular Newsletter and invite members to a series of
evening or day events which will explore and explain some of our rich
stock of buildings of all denominations. Events will be held around
Greater Manchester in the buildings themselves.
