Urban Spirituality from East Manchester

Openshaw Connection is an inclusive
community of anyone and everyone who is
concerned to explore new ways of expressing and sharing faith in the real world.

Our real world consists of a tiny Baptist church in the deprived area of Openshaw in East Manchester. If we have a gospel of hope it is a gospel of renewal, regeneration and resurrection for our community. 

Through this website, we hope to interact with you and your real world. The tabs at the top of the page will take you to the main sections of the website, while the buttons to the left will take you to the pages within the section.

We are Christian and our faith is a Christian faith. You don't have to be Christian to be concerned about issues of faith and spirituality, so we hope you will find this site useful, whatever your faith.

We are city dwellers. Our lives are urban. You don't have to live in the city to be concerned to express your spirituality in new ways which relate to the world in which you live. Our reflections and resources will come out of our context. We hope you will feel able to offer some of your reflections and resources to the wider community of Openshaw Connection
