Welcome to Manchester Airport Chaplaincy
The Airport Chaplaincy was established by GMIM in 1980 to represent all Christian denominations. The team exists today to support Manchester Airport’s customers and staff, whatever their faith tradition, and includes Christian, Jewish and Muslim Chaplains. The Chaplaincy’s main office is in Terminal 1 next to the prayer room at Ground Level Check-In.

Multi-Faith Prayer Rooms
Four Multi-Faith Prayer Rooms serve Manchester Airport and remain open to everyone 24 hours a day. Their Multi-Faith designation reflects the global nature of air travel, and the cosmopolitanism of those who travel through our airport, as well as the diversity of the communities that Manchester Airport serves. Such multi-faith facilities are increasingly common and widely appreciated by passengers and staff in airport terminals throughout the world.
The Chaplaincy is now a separate regulated Charity however it has retained its strong links within GMIM and the Chaplaincy Team across Greater Manchester.
