We have a belief in God and in a spiritual dimension to life and are committed to the development of the whole person. Whether or not you regard yourself as religious, we are available and would hope to get to know you.

There is often a chaplain available within the Y Club (who can be identified by the word CHAPLAIN on the back of their t-shirt) and can be contacted via the reception desk.

Alternatively, phone the Y Club: (0161) 837 3535, or Rev Simon Gatenby (0161) 273 2470. We can also be contacted by email.

Prayer Requests can be put in the box next to the Chaplaincy Noticeboard or can be sent to us by email in strict confidence.

Honorary Chaplain: Rev Canon Simon Gatenby serves in this role as a trustee and spiritual advisor to and member of the Board.

Beer and Carols: An annual event in the hotel bar for Y Club members, guests and staff. Mince pies and mulled wine usually follow. Festive fun for all!

Chaplaincy Meetings take place every two months.

Funerals: Chaplains often attend funerals of members they have known or when requested.  Occasionally suitably qualified chaplains have been asked to officiate at funerals or memorial services.
