On Sunday 9th June we will be holding our annual Whit Walk. The procession will leave the Smith Hill end of St James Street promptly at 10am.
As always we will be accompanied by Middleton Brass Band.
Our fiends from Moorhouse Methodist Church will join us as we walk around the parish eventually ending up in Milnrow Memorial Park. Here there will be a short service and music performed by young people.
Everyone is welcome to join in this amazing tradition that goes back hundreds of years. Can you imagine what it was like to carry the banner in those days? The banner is still the original banner, but these days its at least 3 foot shorter … easy!
Next Sunday, 11th June 2017, we will be holding our Annual Procession of Witness supported by Middleton Brass Band.
The day will start with a joint service of Holy Communion at St James were we will welcome our friends from St Thomas’ Newhey. The service will start at 9:30am .
After a quick brew, we will assemble at the junction of St James St and Kiln Lane. The procession will leave at 11am going down Kiln Lane and along Dale St before turning up towards Butterworth Hall and up Pennine Drive. We then turn into Kiln Lane and along Crossgates Road and down Smith Hill, back to church. Everyone is welcome to join us so come along.
After events of the last 2 weeks this is an ideal way to show our united strength and show Milnrow and the world “we stand together“.
