About Glenbrook Christian Fellowship

We are a small, independent evangelical church in North Manchester.

The church was founded in the early decades of the last century as a need grew in the area for a local Christian fellowship.

Below, you can read an account of the founding, growth and activities of the church over the years.

Today, Glenbrook serves the local community as a place of Christian worship, and our congregation meets regularly for Sunday services, Bible studies and other activities.

You can read more about our regular activities, and special events at Glenbrook in the Events and Activities section. 

As an evangelical church, the preaching of the Gospel message to the local and wider community is of great importance.

From the Sunday School through to larger special events, we share the wonderful truth of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the salvation from sin through Him.

Our services are not based on tradition or religious customs, but focus on God’s word, communicated to us through the Bible. The beliefs we hold are based on direct and balanced interpretation of the Bible.

Our Statement of Doctrine is a concise list of our beliefs, as a church, together with the Bible verses on which we base these beliefs.

Besides our endeavour to preach the Gospel to the community, we also observe the other teachings and commandments of the Lord Jesus Christ as communicated through the Bible.

We partake of Holy Communion as a fellowship each week. We also practice baptism by full-immersion, when a person asks to be baptised on their own decision. We do not baptise babies, but hold dedication services in which we ask for God’s guidance in the life and upbringing of the child.

The leadership of our church is based on the biblical principle of ‘deacons and elders.’ Matters such as this, together with other matters such as membership, are detailed in our Constitution.
