New Annexe opens at St Peter's Prestbury


undefinedThe congregation of St Peter's church, Prestbury, near Macclesfield, held an opening event and services for their new building � an annexe to the old church. The annexe to the Grade I-listed church is a modern construction of striking design. Called St Peter's Rooms, it contains meeting space for young church, choirs, Alpha courses and education, plus toilets, a kitchen, a vestry, a robing room for the choir, and a room for the parish office.

It was officially opened on Sunday 29 November. In total, nearly 500 people attended the services of celebration and thanksgiving  throughout the day – and the following opening event in the annexe.

The opening ribbon was cut by two people – Mary Shaw (a worshipper at St Peter’s for 85 years) and Zac Lawton (a young lad who first worshipped at the church when he was just two days old).

Among the guests was Camilla Legh, patron of the church, and resident of Adlington Hall, and the Archdeacon of Macclesfield, the Ven Ian Bishop.
