We will be open as usual on Wednesday 14th October, 2-4pm.

On Monday 19th and Wednesday 21st we will be closed. This is due to volunteer unavailability.

We expect to be open again on Monday 26th October but please continue to check this page for updates.

Thank you

Befrienders is a project of the Manchester Circuit and operates from the Centre in Oldham Street. The café is run by volunteers from around the circuit on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 2-4pm.

We offer a place for people to meet and chat, free tea, coffee and biscuits, the opportunity for one-to-one conversations and prayer for those who would like it.

We are grateful for the churches around the Manchester Circuit and beyond who are generous with gifts of time and money to enable this project to flourish. 

For more information, contact Deacon Pru.


 While we have a great team, we are always keen to welcome more volunteers by …

·             Being a listening ear

·             Collecting and transporting food collections to the Centre

·             Prayer – holding our Monday and Wednesday sessions in prayer

         (this can be done from home!)

·             Praying in the chapel with those who ask for prayer

NB it isn’t essential to commit to every week; we’d just love to be able to use your gifts and any time you can offer.
