St Bart's Church Remodelling-b

We, at St Bart's, are delighted to say that the contractors have been able to return to work and the interior of the church is now finished. Those who saw the work almost completed at our last service in March, were unanimous in their praise for the difference it had made. All have commented on how big the church now looks; the flexible open space at the West end has great potential; the welcome table is a great addition; the new heating system is very effective and efficient; the panelled walls, which are a return to the Georgian design of the church, look like they have always been there and the replacement of the Victorian pews with Georgian ones, again returning to the original design of the church, look fantastic. We also have improved access to the organ with the space behind it and the big surprise is that the seating capacity has risen by 100 not the originally planned 60. All will have a clear view of the church front and at weddings, the brides family can now watch the service from the front left pew, previously obstructed by the pulpit.

Our only outstanding part of the remodelling is the delivery of the new wooden chairs, which will follow when circumstances allow.

The vicar and churchwardens have met to plan for the reopening of the church, initially for private prayer, as soon as we are allowed. Please watch their website for further imminent information. (http://stbartschurchminshull.org.uk/)

Well here we are again, Christmas is nearly upon us, we've been locked down, unlocked and locked down again, so with tiers in our eyes can anyone explain to me what is going on? Has everything gone to the dogs? Well that's no bad thing I would say but perhaps you take a different view. So before we get going I'm sure you've made the music link from my title? h...
