Loving and serving Jesus, each other, Greater Manchester and beyond.

Who We Are

Saint Philips Chapel Street is a church plant in partnership with New Wine, launching September 2016.

At the invitation of the Bishops of Manchester and Salford, we are developing a church which will be a vibrant and contemporary expression of the Church of England in partnership with New Wine, whose worship and life is biblically based, missional, open-hearted, and creative, to see the region transformed with the good news of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.
The church will make and equip disciples of Jesus, develop leaders, be a blessing to both secular and sacred, plant new churches and seek first God’s kingdom with a focus on young adults and the poor, working in partnership with other churches and denominations.

Saint Philips Chapel Street

Saint Philips Chapel Street is on Wilton Place, Salford. It’s just off Chapel Street, the A6, five minutes from Salford University and Salford Central station, and ten minutes walk from Spinningfields and Deansgate.

The building was built in 1824 and designed by Sir Robert Smirke, architect for the British Museum in London, along with a number of others in the Neo-Classical style. It is a Grade II listed building and has a twin at St Mary’s Bryanston Square (www.stmaryslondon.com)
