BROMSGROVE’S historic All Saints Church will be throwing open its doors next weekend so residents can find out more about the building and its history.
The Open Weekend will take place at the Burcot Lane church from 10am to 5pm on the Saturday (September 12) and between 1pm and 5pm next Sunday(Septermber 13).
A collection of toys will be available for those families who do not have very little and those who go along will also be able to examine the marriage and baptism registers to trace members of their family. There will be a Fairtrade stall offering food, sweets, crafts and cards, there will be a bookstall and visitors will be able to take afternoon tea from 3pm on both days for just £3.
The church will also be open for those who want to spend time in quiet reflection or speak to members.
Tessa Carrick, the organiser of the weekend, said: “We are always pleased to see so many visitors on these special weekends to celebrate the church’s heritage.
“It will be good if parents and children came with toys that were no longer wanted but, whether you bring toys or not, you are bound to find something to enjoy at All Saints on this weekend.”
Those who are unable to get to the church next weekend can always go along on a Thursday when the building is open from 10.30am to 4.30pm between now and the end of October. Anyone wanting more information about The Open Weekend or All Saints Church should call Tessa on 01527 873135
