The St Thomas Conference Centre is an accessible, recently-refurbished Grade 2 Georgian Church within easy reach of both Manchester city centre and Piccadilly Station.

The Centre is managed by the Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation (GMCVO), which has 40 years' experience of working with the local voluntary sector.

GMCVO are applying to the Heritage Lottery Fund to reconfigure the St Thomas Centre and create a community heritage hub for Ardwick that introduces visitors to the rich history of St Thomas’ Church and Ardwick. Help us plan for a future heritage role by completing our public survey which can be accessed here.
