Church History

It was founded in 1874. It is now closed, but we do not know the date of closure.

There was a Sunday school on Bury Old Road.

Broughton Park. - In connection with the Broughton Park Congregational Church, Manchester, a new Sunday-school was opened on Monday. It is situated on a corner plot of land in Bury Old-road, and the design is in the Late Decorated Gothic style. The facade consists of the large gable forming one end of the roof; below are projecting double porches, flanked by staircases with hipped octagonal roofs, and terminating against double gables on the north and south elbows. The building is of stone. There are several classrooms, with a large central hall, accommodation being provided for about 300 boys, girls, and infants. The total cost, including the erection of a boundary wall, has been 2,500. Messrs W. Southern and Son, of Salford, are the contractors, and the architect is Mr A. H. Davies-Colley (Messrs Colley and Brook).

In 1955 the Sunday school became Dormition of Our Lady Ukranian Catholic Church.
