Chapel History[edit | edit source]
The Cathedral Church of Manchester contains many parishes. St. Paul's,[located on New Cross] was erected in 1765; it was greatly enlarged, and re-consecrated in 1778, and a district has been lately assigned. This church has the largest Sunday schools perhaps in Christendom attached to it.
Manchester St Paul New Cross With St Michael and St Thomas Redbank was created as an Ecclesiastical parish in 1929.
