CCJ Manchester is co-chaired by the Revd. Canon Steve Williams, Parish Priest of St Gabriel’s Prestwich and the Bishop of Manchester’s Interfaith Adviser, and Mr. David Arnold, Holocaust educator and former President of the Jewish Representative Council.

We have a very strong and devoted committee who meet regularly to discuss interfaith issues and to plan a variety of events which aim to strengthen existing dialogue and encourage it afresh.

Among our many events, we regularly organise group visits to churches and synagogues, so let us know if this is something you’d be interested in. We want to hear from you, so tell us what kind of events you would like us to organise and contact us if you would like to be involved.
