United legend now turned entrepreneur, Gary Neville and his team, as well as our architect Dawn Jackson, provided an update on the St Michael’s Manchester Development to Shul members at the year’s AGM.  As a result, it is now likely that we will be vacating the premises for our temporary home at the neighbouring Friends Meeting House around December this year.

Planning permission has now been granted. Legal agreements should be finalised in the latter half of 2019.  We plan to vacate our current premise after that and temporarily relocate to the neighbouring Friends Meeting House while our new Synagogue is being built. We look forward to continuing as an active and even more vibrant community during this transition. As always, a warm welcome to Manchester Reform Synagogue, a member of the Movement for Reform Judaism. The synagogue is easy to find as it is near the town hall, right in the centre of Manchester.
