We are pleased to announce that Reverend Helen has been successfully appointed as Area Dean for the new Deanery Manchester North and East.
Following this fantastic appointment the Bishop of Manchester released the following statement:
The Bishop of Manchester, Dr David Walker is delighted to announce the appointment of the Revd. Helen Scanlan as the Area Dean of the new deanery Manchester North and East. The new deaneries are coming into being from June 2021 as part of the “Transforming Manchester Diocese” initiative. This significant new role will give a high level of support and leadership to churches, clergy and lay leaders, across the seven new deaneries.
Helen is very excited to have been appointed Area Dean for Manchester and North East. She is most looking forward to meeting those who live, work and worship each parish forming those relationships, as we work together to continue the work that has already been started, focusing on the mission in the heart of each community.
We wish Helen all of our blessings for the future.

Sadly, in the present national situation with the Corona virus,
we are having to suspend our planned Saturday afternoon and Sunday evening concerts for this year until further notice.
We will continue to monitor the situation and hope that we can offer
some recitals as the year progresses.
In the meantime, one of our choir members, Jill Barber, has used her technical expertise to put together individually recorded parts sung in isolation by other choir members to produce a rendition of 'Drop, Drop Slow Tears' by Orlando Gibbons (an appropriate title for our situation) .
I don't know how she managed it but it is remarkably good and should cheer you up !

You may be looking for the time of next Sunday's service, or wanting to enquire about arranging a baptism . . . . or perhaps you are recently bereaved and wishing to contact us.
Or simply wanting to find out what goes on at that church on Heaton Moor Road . . . . the one with the tall tower, a distinctive local landmark.
We are there for everyone, not just baptisms and weddings.
Many people do not feel the need to go to church or maybe not every week. But at the same time, they want to feel they have a local church where they belong. At times of crisis, loss, or of celebration, knowing where to turn can be reassuring.
Whether you come once a week, once a month, once a year or not at all,this church of St Paul is always here for you, and when you come, you are assured of a very warm welcome.
With my best wishes
Rev’d Helen Scanlan
