May we take this opportunity to introduce ourselves. The Manchester South Seventh Day Adventist Church located at 13 Wilbraham Road in Fallowfield, has been the central branch of the Adventist faith in Manchester for more than 56 years.

The building, which was originally built to last a maximum of 25 years, opened on the evening of Friday 5th June 1959. The funds for its purchase were raised from the committed sacrificial giving by its then members. Over the years the church has gone through changes internally & externally, but the building itself has remained the same. The membership of the church stands at well over 250 members consisting of a good cross section of ages, social backgrounds and ethnicity.

Seventh Day Adventist Church

Manchester South SDA church is one of 12 SDA churches in the Greater Manchester & Salford districts. Seventh-day Adventist Churches literally circle the globe. We are part of a world-wide church, with a membership of over 18 million.

A Caring Church

The Adventist Church also operates 173 Hospitals and Sanitariums, 294 Clinics and Dispensaries, 126 Nursing homes and Retirement centres, 34 Orphanages and Children's homes, that in a recent year served over 18 million people.

A Serving Church

In response to Christ's invitation to feed the hungry and clothe the naked, Seventh-day Adventists try to help friends and neighbours in need irrespective of race, colour or religion. Internationally, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) helps victims of war, famine, floods, earthquakes, and other disasters. In addition, many Adventist congregations have community service facilities, from which volunteers help those in need close to home. In a recent year, Adventists helped nearly 14 million men, women and children. An annual camp is held in North Wales for able bodied and disabled children.

What we believe

We believe the
Bible is the inspired Word of God and is profitable for correction, reproof, and instruction in righteousness. (See 2 Timothy 3:16.)

We believe that Jesus is the eternal, self-existent God and is not a created being. Even though He is fully God, He took upon Himself the form of a man to live and die for our sins. We also believe that He rose from the dead three days later.

We believe that the penalty for man's sin was paid on the cross of Calvary in Jesus' death. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). By believing onJesus Christ and accepting the grace of His shed blood, we receive the gift of eternal life. "Not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:9).

Because we love Jesus for His sacrificial death, we want to obey Him as he commands in John 14:15. We are not saved by our works. But, because we are saved
, we choose to keep His commandments as the guide for successful living.

We believe that prophecy reveals Jesus is coming again very soon. (See Matthew 24:32-51.)
