Land­mark’s spe­cial day

Macclesfield Express - - BARLOW’S BRIEF -

ONE of the town’s favourite land­marks is cel­e­brat­ing its 170th birth­day.

St Paul’s Church on Glegg Street is famed for its 141-foot tower and spire.

It’s con­gre­ga­tion cel­e­brated the birth­day with a spe­cial Har­vest Fes­ti­val ser­vice led by Bishop Wil­liam and a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion by the Brown­ies.

The event marked 170 years to the day since the con­se­cra­tion of St Paul’s by the Bishop of Ch­ester.

The ser­vice fol­lows a year of cel­e­bra­tions with con­certs by The My­del Ladies’ Choir and Puss Bank School, Mac­cles­field Male Voice Choir, a sum­mer fair and pa­rade.

The cel­e­bra­tions con­tinue this Satur­day with a fam­ily disco at the parish cen­tre on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 18, at 6.30pm and a Christ­mas Spec­tac­u­lar on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 12, fea­tur­ing the Lions Youth Brass Band and The King’s School Ju­nior Choir.

The Rev Kathy Kirby, vicar of St Paul’s, said: “We at St Paul’s are thrilled to be cel­e­brat­ing the 170th an­niver­sary of our beau­ti­ful church. I know that St Paul’s is held in great af­fec­tion by many peo­ple in the town.”
