Bromsgrove and Hanbury churches marking heritage weekend with events
9:30am Saturday 7th September 2013 in Local
THREE churches in Bromsgrove and Hanbury are holding special events marking heritage weekend on September 14 and 15.
Local history is at the heart of the weekend, with the events particularly ideal for people researching their family trees.
Christ Church Catshill, in Stourbridge Road, is opening its doors and putting on display all its parish records, providing useful information to townsfolk attempting to trace back their ancestors.
At the event there will also be hand-made crafts on sale, exhibitions, flower displays and refreshments.
The event takes place from 11am on Sunday, September 15.
Throughout the weekend St Mary’s Church, in Astwood Lane, Hanbury, will be holding an exhibition entitled The Way We Were.
It features photographs and memorabilia that show changes within the church and village during the last century, and the church’s connection with BBC Radio 4’s The Archers.
All Saints’ Church, in Burcot Lane, is also taking part in the weekend.
The church will be opening its doors from 10am until 4pm on September 14, then again on September 15 from 11.30am until 4pm.
The Baptism and marriage records, dating back to the church’s opening in 1874, will be available to examine, while there will also be a display showing photographs of former priests, scenes from the past, and interesting objects.
