Ascension Day open air service Ald Edge 2014


undefinedChurches Together in Alderley gathered on Castle Rock, Alderley Edge, to celebrate Ascension Day with a Eucharist. With a view of the Cheshire Plain all around her as she led the service, the Revd Jane Parry reflected on local Christians' commitment to be the light of Christ in the world.

Jane, who is Vicar of Alderley Edge and Rural Dean of Knutsford, said: “It is refreshing to the spirit to worship in the open air, and it makes one think a little of what life must have been like for the early church.”

Churches Together in Alderley has organised many different events in recent times, including: open air carol services; a big walk of witness on Good Friday; and pilgrimages to the Marian shrine at Walsingham in Norfolk.
