October progresses

We are sorry that we are not keeping St Michael’s church open for visitors as much as we had hoped.  The first stage of the major rewiring of the building involves internal scaffolding which blocks off safe access to the Bronte Memorial Chapel and adjacent burial site.  We hope the church will be open more as October progresses.

Wednesday 9th October – 10.15 Breathing Space (offering silence and reflective time) at St James’

Thursday 10th October – 7.30 Praise & Worship (offering song and prayer) at St Gabriel’s

Sunday 20th October – 11.00 All Age Worship at St Michael’s; 5.00 Breathing Space at St Gabriel’s

Saturday 19th October – 11.00 Soup and Sandwiches at St James’

Saturday 26th October – 7.30 Haworth Brass band Concert at St James’

First they wrapped the organ

The work our organ tuner did on Monday looks a bit like the shrink wrapping offered for suitcases at airports. And then, today, the scaffolding is coming in. Our re-wiring project is under way.

Venturesome days

Next Sunday (29th September) is St Michael’s Day – so 11.00 a.m. Morning Worship will celebrate that (and share some of the thinking about the sense of direction for all three of our churches developed at a recent Benefice Forum).

The following day (30th September) work begins on the major re-wiring of the building. We will try to keep it open as much as possible over the following nine weeks – but we are afraid it will certainly have to be closed to visitors for some days in the week beginning 29th September (as scaffolding goes in and the high level work is begun) – but which days this will be keep changing.

The following Sunday (6th October) we will discover what it is like having 11.00 Morning Worship in a building site – it will be our Harvest Festival.

And we are sorry the clock has stopped! The flag got loose and, heavy with rain, wrapped itself round one of the clockfaces, bending the hands and griding things to a halt. We are working to get it running again with three of the four clockfaces showing the right time (although the one damaged clockface will remain wrong until we can get it properly and more expensively repaired).
