The expansion to Audacious Church will see an auditorium seating 2,400, a TV studio and a seven story car park.

Despite eleven objections from local residents and businesses, the multi million pound project has been given the go ahead by local councillors.

The church’s building, which used to be a stationery shop, opened in 2011 in a prime location in the city. Rather than moving away from the site, leaders chose to build up.

The church has seen huge growth hosting three Sunday services along with a host of projects throughout the week for the local community.

In its submission the church said: “Audacious Church are passionate about making a positive impact on the local community and feel strongly that this can be best achieved from their current site, which is well known throughout the region.

“This is not a typical parish church, it is a cathedral church.”


Audacious is led by Glyn and Sophia Barrett who started the church in 2007 having been commissioned out of Hope City Church Sheffield.

Manchester City Council has unanimously voted in favour of a huge renovation of the city’s biggest church.
