Forward in Faith Manchester


WELCOME to the webpages for the Manchester Diocese Branch of Forward in Faith.


We are part of Forward in Faith, both in the UK and internationally.


We seek to uphold the understanding of the catholic faith and order of the Church which has been held by the vast majority of the Church throughout history and throughout the world today, within the life of the Church of England.


We are committed to working within the framework of the Five Guiding Principles of the House of Bishops’ Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops and Priests.


We seek the flourishing of all who have different views on the ordination of women and we work with those of different views to ourselves to build mutual understanding.
