Looking at Churches

The Church's Restoration
In eighteen-eighty-three
Has left for contemplation
Not what there used to be.

John Betjeman

Looking at Churches’ is an interest group run now by Rob Tipler and Ruth Townrow. Attendance is normally between fifty and sixty. There is no waiting list because the hall can accommodate up to eighty. No specialist knowledge is required, and members are encouraged to share their experience and knowledge if they would like to.

Looking at Churches meets in St Paul's Church Room, entrance on Belford Road, off Victoria Avenue, on third Tuesdays, at 10am.

There is generally a powerpoint presentation on some aspect of church architecture, fixtures and fittings, and occasionally church history. For example presentations include Anglo-Saxon or Norman churches, medieval chantries, the impact of the Reformation, the 19th century Gothic Revival. There are also trips to visit churches in the spring and summer.

The Group Leaders are Rob Tipler and Ruth Townrow. Please contact them for further information.
