Within each place of worship a member of the particular faith group will take over the guiding. 

But this tour is open to all.

Jonathan Schofield, Confidential editor, and a very secular chap, will lead the tour and guide the fascinating story of Cheetham Hill between the places of worship. 

Schofield says: "Whether people are religious or not, this tour gives people an insight into how the various faith groups of Manchester worship, interact and how they look on the world. Cheetham Hill is one of the most diverse suburbs in the country. For anybody wanting to know how modern British cities and their faith groups function this tour is a must."
