St Alban the Martyr Anglican Catholic Church is the continuation of the former Church of England Church of St Alban, Waterloo Road, Manchester. On 13th February 1994 the congregation voted to leave the Church of England and be received into the ACC.

After worshipping in various places, a former butchers shop was bought and converted into a Church. This was duly consecrated by the, then Bishop Ordinary of the Diocese of the United kingdom, Bishop Leslie Hamlett on 10th October 1998.

The Church has Icons and Statues, all with their own history, of which information is available on request from the Parish Priest.

In October 2008 the Bishop appointed Fr Charles Johnson, the Parish Priest, Dean of the Northern Deanery, a position he held for twelve years. In November 2020, he retired from the position of Dean and was made a Canon.
