About Us

Our Minister

Rev Cody Coyne

Our Minister, the Rev’d Cody Coyne, has been with us since 2014. Cody was born in Michigan and attended the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Flint, along with his parents and older brother and sister.

He attended the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, and while there performed with the prestigious Eastman Wind Ensemble. He graduated in 2006. Afterwards, Cody moved to Manchester in to continue his education at the Royal Northern College of Music. While there, he met his future wife Catherine, and they began attending a Unitarian church near their home.

Cody began his ministerial training at Harris Manchester College, Oxford, in 2011 under the Rev’d Dr Arthur Stewart. While there, he studied through University of London’s International Programme, earning a Diploma in Theology. He attended the Yad Vashem Holocaust Remembrance Centre in Jerusalem, Israel. He has conducted worship at the Annual General Meeting of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, and has preached throughout the Northwest.

In addition to ministry, Rev’d Coyne is passionate about music, creativity, and assisting the needy in Manchester.


Our services can be wide ranging in belief, practice and feel, but we seek to include people from all walks of life and experiences. We often build upon a Christian-style service with hymns (our chapel is musically gifted), readings, prayers and an address, but we draw from many traditions, seeking inspiration from different religions and philosophies. We mark the start of worship with the lighting of a chalice and people are sometimes invited to share an event of the past week that has been joyful or challenging.

We seek to provide a space where people can come as they are, without feeling pressured to participate beyond their own level of comfort. We want to be a place where you can come, without regard to age, sex, sexual orientation, gender or any other identity one may hold.
