St Andrew’s 1350th
 Inspiring The Future

In October we will begin a year-long celebration of an amazing anniversary. St Andrew’s Church here in Corbridge will be 1350 years old. Wow, what a remarkable fact for our village.

What will happen during our celebration?

 

We hope the year will celebrate Corbridge as the community that has grown around St Andrew’s Church. So, our schools, village groups and organisations are invited to share in this once in a generation anniversary.

 

We keep St Wilfrid’s Day on October 12th, the day of his death. So, the opening weekend will be Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October. On the Saturday there will be a Church Open Day with activities, a talk, reception and music. On Sunday 13th, Bishop Helen-Ann, the Bishop of Newcastle, will come to preside and preach at the 10am service followed by a shared lunch.

 

During the year we will be holding various displays illustrating both the history of Corbridge and St Andrew’s and interpreting the church building and the Christian faith and Christian community which inhabit it.
