Our Meetings

Due to the Covid-19 crisis (Coronavirus) all Manchester Parents Group Meetings have been suspended.

It is with great sadness that because of the current Covid-19 crisis (Coronavirus) and following instructions from the Archbishop of Canterbury and other church leaders, the parents group will not be able to hold their monthly meeting at St Ann's Church, St Ann's Square, Manchester. This is completely beyond our control, but it is being done for the health and safety of everyone. Even the church services will be cancelled, along with any concerts or weddings that are booked in the church.

Be assured, if you need any help - Please contact us by our helpline or email or through Facebook.

The church authorities have assured us that as soon as an "all clear" is given, we will be informed and our meetings can recommence.

UK Government advice on the crisis.


We welcome all parents and family members and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people (LGBT) to our meetings. We meet monthly as an informal support group in Central Manchester, helping new members to develop understanding and acceptance of their young person's sexual orientation or gender identity and generally sharing our experiences. We are not trained counsellors, but can provide help through our own experiences.

Manchester Parents Group Meetings

Meetings are held in a private room so complete confidentiality is assured to everyone.
Meetings are held on the first Saturday of each month.
