Didsbury United Reformed Church
Didsbury United Reformed Church

Originally St. Aidan's Presbyterian Church which opened in 1901, built with the support of a largely Scottish congregation. The construction is of Accrington brick and Westmorland slate with a spire and unusual flying buttresses. It was Grade II listed LinkExternal link on account of its fine stained glass windows.

In 1971 St. Aidan's merged with Grosvenor Presbyterian Church (Withington) becoming Grosvenor St. Aidan's. This was soon followed by the formation of the United Reformed Church, when the Presbyterian Church of England and the Congregational Church in England and Wales united, later being joined by the Churches of Christ and the Congregational Union of Scotland. In 1992 the church sanctuary was badly burned in an arson attack and extensive restoration was required and the opportunity was taken for some modernisation. In 2009 it was renamed Didsbury United Reformed Church. LinkExternal link
