St. George's Free Church of England parish.

Ok, I love old churches, and I love the Church of England and those that continue in her sacred traditions. Below are some photographs from 100 years at St. George's parish in Blackburn, England. I doubt if I'll ever get over there, but if I do I'll try and make a visit. The Free Church of England is the counterpart to the Reformed Episcopal Church of the United States.

"We are a family church, with members from babies to 90+ years! Everyone is warmly welcomed, whether they attend weekly or occasionally. We do not have our own places, or special rules to follow and all opinions and ideas are valued.

We believe that this is why our church has grown. Families can come together, knowing their children are welcome, even if they do make a noise!

We are obviously biased, but don't take our word for it - come and see for yourself! Our most recent members have all said how welcome they feel and how much love they feel from the Fellowship of everyone at St. George's.

What are you waiting for?"

Thanks for the splendid plug of Cranmer House! I'm completing my first year of study at CTH, and I can honestly say that it has been one of the best experiences of my life.

Anyone who wants to know more about the seminary can subscribe to the newsletter email list at www.cranmerhouse.org/newsletter.htm.
