High-class fish, fruit, poultry

It’s our 250th church anniversary coming up in June and we’ve been asking for memorabilia.

One of the gems is a St John’s Church Bury Parish Magazine from April 1968.

Amongst the adverts for Brian’s Chippy on Argyle Street and Cunnane’s ‘high-class fish, fruit, poultry and vegetables and fresh flower shop’ on Malvern Avenue, we have some very revealing letters and editorials uncovering what church life was like here 52 years ago.

On 4 August 1918, the fourth anniversary of the declaration of war, King George V and Queen Mary joined members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords for a special service at the Church of Saint Margaret, Westminster. The King had asked that 4 August 1918 should be observed as a National Day of Prayer: 100 days later the war ended.

On 4 August 2018 churches across the country, across the spectrum of denominations, started 100 days of prayer, peace and reconciliation. We are calling this Remembrance 100
