The Story of the Community Church of the Nazarene, Longsight

Originally Star Hall Mission…

The Longsight church began in Ancoats as a ‘mission hall’ in 1889, by Manchester businessman Francis Crossley – founder of Crossley Works¹ – to meet the spiritual needs of his own workers. He purchased a dance hall, Star Hall, ultimately building his own facilities These included a place of worship which saw a multitude of the leading ‘holiness’² preachers of the day, as well as Ancoats Hospital, providing health care for that blighted area of the city. After his death in 1896 his daughter and a Miss Hatch took leadership of the ministry, which came to include a ‘Bible Institute’ that trained church leaders who were sent around the world.³
