Brian - what a beautiful church. I've only ever seen it from the front and
back. The stained glass windows are magnificent. I love the last one,
the one with the Blessed Mary and child which is dedicated in the memory of
Roger Hall Snr, and the one with the crown.
Thanks for taking these and showing them on the Forum. :D

This Church always intrigued me, its a beautiful building to look at, walked past it going to school every morning, and then again when i was taking my kids to school. I have been in it only once for a Funeral.....Great shots Brian, love the stained glass windows, and the wooden stairwell, but did i notice 2 pews back to back?

Wonderful photos Brian. This is the only church in town I haven't been in. The stained glass windows are amazing, & the memorial plaques fascinating to read. Thanks for taking the trouble to photograph all the churches, you've done us all a great service.

toward the back of the church yes, up near the font. Can't remember the reason for it though (apart from maybe somewhere for the parents getting their child christened to sit?) Missing from the wall is the "Cradle Roll" listing people who were christened there, its being updated at the moment, and as soon as it is back in I will get a photo of it.

meanwhile have these few extra snaps.

Pew 19 - the McCabe family seat :D

Close up of some of the roof beams (excuse the cobwebs)

Image
a little graffiti (I probably know who made those but better say nothing) :rotfl:

Image
a little more graffiti (and i do know who did that, but am definitely saying nothing :') )

And the final batch.

Image
These are the wooden organ pipes at the side of the main organ, there is a little room behind there that my mother remembers having to go into with my uncle to operate the bellows for the old organ

Image
These next few pictures are a few pages from the visitors book, situated at the back of the church.

Fantastic................If your task is completed all to this standard we will have a nice record of all our places of worship.

Lovely to see a close up of The Mothers' Union Banner in the second lot of pics Brian. Sadly our Mothers' UInion Branch is no more, it had become a sort of 'Grandmother's Union' with numbers dropping off. I think the last time the banner was used was when I carried it at the late Renee Cooper's funeral. Renee had been our Enrolling Member for many many years and I was secretary, which was when the title 'the two Renees' came into being!
Don't see a photo of the Communion Table etc. in the side chapel which was dedicated to the late Ivan Toombs. I believe they were made by Cyril Blakley. There is also a lovely cross on the table presented by Eileen Clarke in memory of her late husband Canon David Clarke, which was made by their grandson.

The table actually has a plaque on it inscribed "In Loving Memory Of Richard William James McKee - 28th April 1981 Donated by his family"

unfortunately the dedication did not photograph well so that's why I left it out (with the intention of taking the photo again) but I do have a picture of the table with the cross on it (I missed it when loading the others into photobucket)

Image

Also the chair Miss Wilson dedicated.

I also have some pictures of some of the former rectors of the church, and a communion photo from 1974 but I have not had a chance to get them ready yet.

Hi Brian, Wonderful pictures of the church. I know this building very well. Rang the bell on sundays, played the Last Post on rememberance day, placed the communion mat at the altar and fancied I was the Phantom at the organ. From time-to-time read the lesson from the eagle stand. Not guilty of the graffiti!!!!. Enjoyed all the church pictures. It's great that someone has taken the time to compile all this data.

Suppose you were waiting for a confession to some of the graffiti Brian. Well 'hands up' it was me!! My initials are a bit of a give away. We had to pass the time somehow during the sermons!! I spent many years in the church, as a member of the junior choir, ringing the bell on Sunday morning, pumping the organ - yes we had to sit in behind it and pump it to keep it going during the service- before it was 'electrified'. We shared the belfry with numerous pigeons and the ladder up would not pass todays health and safety regulations! Didn't you make it up there to take a photo??
Photos bring back many happy memories.

Image CLICK TO ENLARGE

I have finally been able to get a photo of the Cradle Roll at the rear of the church - The picture is quite big (1.3Mb) but that is so people can read it more easily. The dates covered are from 20th August 1961 to 6th April 2008 (so far) - and yes I am on there as are a few other forum members :D

What a lovely way to keep a
record of the babies born, and
such a beautiful place to put
it.

I love the way the names were
written in, so neatly and
"together".
Now a silly question, why
did it stop in '08.
I'm sure babies are still being born! :baby:

As far as I know names are only added in batches as the roll has to be taken down and the names hand written in. I'm not sure who does the writing so I will see if I can find out, I updated my post to add in "so far" as there are some to be added in :D

Hi Brian, Great pictures. The interior has not changed. As a young lad I often read the lesson on Sunday, climbed into the belfry to ring the bell and sounded the last post on rememberance day.. Occasionally when no one was around fiddled with the organ. Good memories.
