Wythenshawe Team Ministry

In 2002, Wythenshawe became the first area in Shrewsbury Diocese to develop a Team Ministry approach to serving the needs of the Catholic community in the area.  The Wythenshawe Team Ministry includes all the members of the Church in Wythenshawe; lay people, religious and clergy. The Team also has an Administrator.  The key aim of Team Ministry is to move away from a narrow parochial approach, to a broader, collaborative one, with churches working together and sharing resources, to strengthen the spiritual, pastoral and social development of the Catholic Church in Wythenshawe.

Decision making is done through the Leadership Council and the strategy developed is then implemented through the Pastoral Team.  

Mission Statement

The three Catholic Parishes in Wythenshawe are a Union of Pastoral Communities based on Gospel values and operating through Team Ministry. Our purpose is to be:

‘a community of people united in Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit in their pilgrimage towards the Father’s Kingdom, bearers of a message of salvation for all of humanity.’
(Vatican II, Gaudium et Spes, para 1)

Local Pastoral Area

The Wythenshawe parishes form St Bonaventure's Local Pastoral Area, within the Wythenshawe and South Trafford Deanery.  This Deanery includes parishes in Sale, Sale Moor, Ashton on Mersey, West Timperley, Hale Barns and Altincham.  Collaborative working is also being fostered across these areas.
