Notice for Churches

Manchester District Council is working hard to support and assist our churches.

As energy prices have soared in recent times, we recognise the difficulties our churches face in keeping open, providing a warm and hospitable environment for their congregations.

Churches should by now have received the £250 grant from the SNU to mitigate the rising cost of energy, however, we are pleased to announce that your District Council would like to help further by offering our Manchester District churches a one off payment of £100 to ease the burden further.

To avail your church of this grant, we would ask church secretaries to email Matthew Mold, Manchester District Secretary on, and he will be pleased to make the necessary arrangements for payment.

Thank you to all our church committee's and volunteers for your hard work and energy in keeping churches open.


It is with regret that we announce the resignation of our President, Minister Janette Cookson and our Treasurer Mr Danny Goodchild, who have both worked tirelessly for many years on behalf of our District and the SNU. They are both true ambassadors for Spiritualism.

Your District Committee however, continue to work hard on your behalf ensuring that we provide both continuity and a smooth transition as new people take up their positions. Vice President Patricia Redman has stepped into the role of President, Secretary Matthew Mold has taken on the additional role of Treasurer and Susan Presley (CSNU) has kindly agreed to be the District Education Officer.


I am sure that many of you will want to wish Janette and Danny all the best for the future, as they continue with their support and dedication to the running of Salford Church.

Thank you Janette & Danny for your hard work and commitment over many years.
