The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
St Alban's: August 2019
Idea Way Off The Radar
We were struck by the suggestion of St Alban's Church Treasurer to enjoy the treasure we have here in Tattenhall in plain sight. He writes:
"Take a peek inside the church and sit for a while. You will then see and feel that this place is worth preserving for the generations to come. The church is open every day from 10.00am to 5.00pm"
We often forget or indeed never realise that our local church is an oasis of peace and quiet shielded from the hustle, bustle, trials and tribulations of everyday life. The invitation is to sit and think or just sit. No questions asked, no pre-requisite of belief or creed, just peace and quiet.
The Treasurer does point out that maintenance of St Alban's is a reality and preserving this treasure is well worthwhile:
"If you feel so inclined you could pop some money in the very nicely decorated bowl provided as you leave. Make the effort — make a difference"
It is well known that many churches keep their doors locked for most of the time. By contrast here in Tattenhall we have just the opposite, an open, welcoming, tranquil space for all of us to enjoy, active churchgoer or not.
