St Peter’s Curdridge once again.

It’s not often that we sing at the same place twice in a row, but we have been invited to help the good folk of St Peter’s Curdridge celebrate the 130th anniversary of the laying of the foundation stone of their church building.

The church itself is older than that as there was an earlier chapel from 1835, part of which remains, but it’s the later, current one we are celebrating.

 

This will be a Sunday afternoon church service at 4pm on 26th Nov.   3 days shy of 130 years.

Expect songs about stones and buildings – and of course cake.

 

The Augusta Burrell who laid the original stone was a local lady who owned Fairthorne Manor and donated about 25% of the cost of building the church, and also performed many other acts of local philanthropy.

 

Here’s a photo of us at the event, and a picture of a rather good matchstick model of St Peter’s:
