Welcome to the Church of the Holy Rood, Swinton in the Diocese of Manchester.
Work began on the first church building on this site over 150 years ago, back in 1865. Since then, Holy Rood Church and the Memorial Hall have played a busy and active part in the life of the local community.
Today, there is lots happening in and around Holy Rood, with a whole range of social activities to suit all ages and interests, as well as chances to explore Christian faith and spirituality.

Holy Rood aims to be a friendly and inclusive community, where all are welcome, irrespective of background, religious commitment, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Whether you're searching for answers to life's big questions, looking for activities to keep the children busy, or hoping to tread the boards in our annual pantomime, you'll be very welcome.
