Lesley is also a pastor’s wife and has served for over 30 years in pastoral, missional and community engagement.

ST ANN’S CHURCH

We have recently partnered with St Ann’s Church in Manchester to create a series of pop up art exhibitions and events within their beautiful building. St Ann’s is known for its warm welcome to all who enter its doors. As well as holding regular services of worship and offering a quiet and safe space for all to pray and reflect within, the church has a heart to serve the wider community of the city, particularly the vulnerable and the stranger, offering breakfast and friendly conversation to the homeless one morning a week as part of their commitment to the Manchester Homeless Charter.
