The Manchester Alliance Church established
We used the Salvation Army’s venue as our place of Sunday service, fellowship, children Sunday school, youth program, Chinese classes and other evangelical activities.
Due to renovation of the Salvation Army’s venue, we have to relocate to Brunswick Parish Church for our gatherings.
Because of termination of rental agreement, we were led by the Lord to rent St. Peter’s House to conduct Sunday service and other activities, we also rented some rooms as as church offices.
We received notification from St. Peter’s House to evict completely by 31st July, 2005. Eventually we were only allowed to use the building for Sunday activities (e.g. service, Sunday school & Chinese classes).
So we began to rent a floor in Tresco House as Church Centre for fellowship meetings and other activities as well as church office. While we continued our Sunday service, children Sunday school, Chinese classes and some other activities at St. Peter’s House.
MAC had the vision to have our own venue from the very beginning. In 2008, it was reported by a member that in nearby Hulme Street some empty units were available on sale or to rent. After extensive investigation and negotiation with the landlord, it was agreed to acquire the current Alliance Centre.
After a long period of exploration, seeking for the right location, raising fund and God’s providence, the 1st phase building work for Manchester Alliance Centre was finally completed. So we relocated from St. Peter’s House to the centre.
The 2nd phase renovation was completed, which gave us the Main Hall and rooms on the 2nd floor.
The 3rd phase renovation planning and construction works begin.
The 3rd phase renovation was completed, which gave us the baptist pool, creche, new rooms on the 2nd floor and the new stage for the Main Hall.
Manchester Alliance Church established 2 new Cantonese services and youth programmes at Trafford and Warrington.
