Pews Away 08

Thanks to John for sending this picture of St Michael's, Park Road. It shows the interior recently cleared of old pews before extensive works to modernise. The pews are to be replaced by chairs - as has already happened in many other churches.

Last Sunday as I passed the Conduit Centre, next to Trinity Church, I heard St Michael's congregation and cantor singing their mass - the Conduit Centre is their temporary home.

Each Sunday, there are two churches meeting on opposite sides of the Trinity Church lawn. The two congregations will finally join up together as one for the Harvest Festival. As the not so eminent theologian Father Jack Hackett was taught to say: "Yes!" and "That would be an ecumenical matter!"
