Welcome all. So this past Sunday we had our first opening of guided tours. We started off with the marvelous Rev’d Stephen Hatcher, taking on the character of one of the first open air preachers, giving us a wonderful insight into the history of how Mow Cop became the sight of the first ever England open air camp meeting- that was until the crabby Mrs Vinegar interrupted proceedings. What a scene that turned out to be!!! (Special thanks to Shirley Brooks for all her time and effort this Sunday, we pray you got some well deserved sleep afterwards.)
Once these proceedings had finished, staying in character, Rev’d Stephen Hatcher, guided us around the hall, as we embarked on watching a few demonstrations concerning early Primitive Methodism science as he unfolded the in-depth knowledge of our local legend Hugh Bourne.
Afterwards, Rev’d Stephen Hatcher was kind enough to show us around the chapel, pointing out all the important aspects, and unfurling much of the buildings sustained history from the hanging banners to the stain glass windows to the old chapel school room.
Do not worry yourselves if you couldn’t attend this past Sunday as we shall be running the event again next Sunday. So if you would like to know more about the deep and rich history of our gracious church and the Godly anointing that took place all those plentiful years ago at the top of Mow Cop, why not pop along. Open from 14:00-16:30.
Just want to say a great big and warm thank you for all those who came, it was an enjoyable time of fellowship and a precious blessing to meet other people with such a keen interest.
