http://www.st-margarets-centre.co.uk/contact/

Striving through education to develop alternatives to conflict and injustice...promoting the well being of individual and communities...We have many faiths but only one world in which to co-exist

St Margarets Centre was originally purchased as a piece of land by the wife of St Margarets Vicar in the late 1800's to 'beneift the children of the parish' of St Margarets. Since its early days the Trustees and parish members worked hard to deliver the vision and provide support where it's most needed.

We provide a space for people to come together and share learning experiences that enhance and empower their daily lives.                                                              

We offer the following programmes in Manchester:

  • Schools Programme: 
  • Community Programme: 
  • Projects: 
  • Love Learning Programme: 
  • One World programme: One World bookshop stocking books on various awareness campaigns such as fair trade, child labour and environmental issues affecting developing countries.
