Parish Churches

Christmas In St John The Baptist, Stamford, Lincolnshire

Every year we visit The Church of St John The Baptist in Stamford, Lincolnshire.  They have a Christmas card and decorations sale inside the church each year, also lots of dressed Christmas trees, which makes the church very colourful on a cold grey day.  Just a few photos from last years visit 2016.

 

The Old Church Chest

I love these old medieval church chests, at one time they would have held all the church records, but thats going back about five hundred years ago.  Now this one is used for lovely Christmas decorations in St Peter’s Church in Walpole St Peter, Norfolk.  You will see a few more Christmas posts from this delightful church…….I took way too many last year, and I never like to waste photos 🙂

Nativity Window – No 1

 

Each Christmas I try to post some Nativity Stain Glass Windows, unfortunately they are becoming fewer, as I now have to go further a field for them.  I did save a few for this Christmas and this is a lovely window which you can find in St Michel & All Angels Church in Middlewich, Cheshire.

St Faith In The Church of St Peter & St Paul, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire

Wisbech a Fenland Town in Cambridgeshire, holds a Rose Fair each year, which we try to attend, it’s like a carnival and is well attended.  The parish church of St Peter & St Paul hold their flower festival at the same time and of course I visit and take loads of photos….which I still need to post, but sorting through some photos I found St Faith.  The church has lots of lovely stained glass, but St Faith is my favourite window and maybe I will get around to posting about the Rose Fair, now I have found her 🙂
