Local schools are welcome to come to our church for educational visits. We run different sessions about several different parts of our church life, including the Eucharist and Baptism and also about the actual building - including history with the Savile Chapel and our stained glass.
This lovely photograph was taken by our volunteer Chris and shows a visit from March 2015. This young lady was wearing one of our child size vestments and showing what she had learned happens during the Eucharist
