On Sunday 2nd July at Holy Trinity Church Bickerstaffe a special commemorative service took place for the new internal church doors.
The new doors replace the original ones and have glass windows, making the church brighter and more welcoming. We can now see people coming into church and this means anyone who needs support can be seen as they approach. This is the first stage of internal improvements some pews are also to be modified in due course.
Edward McCarthy explains: “The doors are funded from a legacy in memory of Mrs Rhoda Critchley who was a well-loved church goer.”
“The Church were awarded funding from the Big Lottery Fund last autumn which has also contributed to the doors project and some additional heater units for inside the church. “
“We would like to thank the Critchley Family for this generous contribution, the doors really make a difference and will be there for many, many years to come.”
“The Doors were made by Simon Parsons of The Woodworkshop, Ormskirk. The Glass and engraving completed by David Jones of Robson’s Glass, Leyland. I would like to thank them for their good work.”
“I would like to thank Merrick for his endless commitment to the doors and all the other work he does behind the scenes.”
“If you would like to see new lovely new doors why not come to one of our services, Sunday mornings at 10:45am.”
