Our new Priest

We were delighted to welcome our new Priest-in-Charge, Revd Robin Townsend, on 10 September.  Robin will remain in his post of Vicar at St James' in our neighbouring village of Slaithwaite and will continue to live there.  Please see "Contact us" for his telephone number.

In 2015 we were the recipient of a grant from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund.  This has allowed us to carry out much needed repairs to the north and south aisle roofs and those of the vestries and the Lady Chapel. 

These roofs are immediately above 15 of our 17 beautiful stained glass windows, which would have been at risk of damage if the repairs had not been carried out.  The grant was for 40,700, with a further 6,000 being allocated from our Church Fabric Fund.

We are extremely grateful to the LPOW for enabling us to carry out this work.

In 2014 the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded us a grant of 10,000 to support the project 'Marsden Remembers' - our commemoration of the events of World War One.

This has enabled us to produce a commemorative Remembrance Book, with an appropriate case, which will remain in the Church,

The grant has also funded art and craft materials for the children of Marsden Infant and Junior Schools to produce work for our exhibition.

It also covered the costs of banners and other advertising media, as well as those associated with the Remembrance Service and parade.

The Exhibition continues and is updated each year with events, both global and local, of 100 years ago.  It can be viewed whenever the church is open and is specifically open to visitors during the summer months, and this year will concentrate on events of 1917.

We are very grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for their grant which has enable the whole village to be involved in the commemoration of World War One.
