ˇ Thank you for visiting our parish church website.


ˇ St. Cross is the parish church in Clayton, an inner city district of Manchester, situated about two miles to the east of the city centre.

ˇ Children are very welcome to all our services, and there is a Junior Church every Sunday during the parish Eucharist at 10.30am.


ˇ The church was designed by the eminent Victorian architect of the Gothic revival, William Butterfield (1814-1900).


ˇ For over 125 years St. Cross, through the Catholic tradition of the Church, has bore witness to the Christian Gospel in worship, fellowship and involvement in the community at large.
