An arts-and-crafts mansion, set in four acres of grounds.
Nazarene Theological College is located in a former mansion that’s encompassed by four acres of grounds. Well within the city limits, we are accessible by all forms of transport. Sharing the site is a state-of-the art teaching facility, a spacious chapel and a cozy café. A perfect setting for conferences, weddings, a retreat, or an away day, we offer special rates for churches and other partner organisations. For information on rates and availability, please contact the bookings and accommodation office.
The main White House building was built in 1914 by the renowned Manchester architect Frank Dunkerley. The conference room, with barrel ceiling and large fire-place, can seat up to 24 people. With wi-fi and a video-projector available, it forms an atmospheric meeting place.
Larger groups meet in the College Chapel, which holds from 50 – 125. It has amplification and projection facilities available along with a superb grand piano and, for those with suitable skills, a small pipe organ!
The café and conservatory provide￼ a pleasantly informal area, with bistro tables and squashy furniture. It can also function as a lunch venue, or be a space for smaller groups to meet.
The Emmanuel Centre is the college’s main teaching area, and its five rooms can be booked individually or collectively. Two of the 40-seat classrooms can be combined into a larger space, complete with Smartboard and Wi-Fi. The Emmanuel Centre is also home to the excellent Hugh Rae Library, the Manchester Wesley Research Centre and the Manchester Centre of the Study of Christianity and Islam.
Worth a special mention is the outdoor space: the largest private woodland in south Manchester, with extensive lawns overlooking the Mersey Valley. Feel free to wander about or find a spot for quiet reflection.
