St Edmund's Grace congregation




The Grace Community Church was started as an independent Urdu congregation and in earlier days had no permanent home. In 2008 we joined the Church of England and started to worship at St. Edmund's church. We are a congregation of St Edmund's church in the diocese of Manchester. Members of our congregation are on St Edmund's parochial church council.



Members of the Grace Community live across Greater Manchester and many also attend local parish churches of varying denominations. The congregation is well integrated into the Church of England and Revd. Falak Sher, an Urdu speaker, pastors the congregation and leads Sunday worship. We have recently celebrated our tenth anniversary with our Annual Convention attended by over 100 people.



4:00pmEucharist (Holy Communion) in the Urdu language


Worship is at 4.00pm in St Edmund’s building and is normally Holy Communion in the Urdu language and in a style which is typical for the people of south Asia. 1st Sunday is an all-age service. Music is important in the worship and there is an excellent choir which helps to create a deep spiritual atmosphere in the liturgy. The 4th Sunday is always planned and led by a mixture of teenagers and young adults.

Upcoming Services:


Annual Convention

The church holds an Annual Convention in July which fills the church building and to which outside speakers are invited. It is followed by a feast!
