Perched along the rolling meadows of the English countryside sits a church with a whimsical history. Not only is it a living testament to its mission, but its members have found a way to celebrate past members in a new exhibit. Their doors are open to the public daily.
The sign says so much:
Tea anyone? What a way to welcome visitors!
The stained glass reflects the history of the church. The top panels, dedicated to biblical history, while the bottom panels incorporate Alice In Wonderland.
Close ups of those bottom panels…
The Lewis Carroll Centre, a new exhibit, explains the history of the Dodgson family. Lewis Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) lived here while his father was a vicar.
There is service every Sunday. They are a welcoming group, I can assure you of that because I have experienced this warmth first-hand. If you choose to attend, you receive a warm welcome and so will your children. There is a children’s area to the right of the church.
The pastures and grave sites surrounding the church.
Everything is so old and steeped in history.
I hope you enjoyed our walk through the All Saints Church in Daresbury. This church is not far from Manchester airport. There is much to do in this area. It is also about 1/2 hour from Wales.
