Heritage (non)Open Day 2020

On what would normally have been the annual Heritage Open Day at St Paul’s the COVID-19 restrictions meant the full event could not take place. However with good weather the Church was open with limited access and refreshments were served on the canal bank and in the Church grounds. The photos below were taken during the afternoon.

Heritage Open Day 2020

The poster below details a rather different Heritage Open Day to previous years.

Whilst we are unable to celebrate Heritage Open Day in the usual way, it will still go ahead with a difference.

The Church will be open for private prayer and to look around from 11am to 4pm. Whilst we will not this year have special exhibitions and displays, visitors will have the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the Church, including the many fine, stained glass windows and memorials.

Some interesting old documents will be release on the Church facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pg/stpaulssale/posts which can also be access via the Church website, https://stpaulsale.co.uk

Refreshments will be available outside from 1pm to 3pm

VJ Day Display

15th August 2020 Display in honour of the 75th Anniversary of V J Day, marking both the surrender of Japan and the end of the Second World War.  We remember and recognise all those who served and sacrificed in the Far East and ultimately brought an end to World War Two.

The photos below show the display outside Church on 15th August.

Mustard Tree update

The following message has been received from Eileen :

I will probably go once a month to the Mustard Tree while this lasts. If the Congregation could bring any contributions  they have  on Sunday  we will load them straight into my car boot and that way nothing is going into church or the hall.

Regards  Eileen
