New font at Mossley church


The new solid oak font at Holy Trinity Church, Mossley, Congleton, replaces a Victorian stone font which was removed during the development work at the west end of the church. The new font was designed and made by Garry Olson, a furniture-maker from Wilmslow - PICTURED HERE with the Revd Canon David Taylor, Rural Dean of Congleton and Team Rector in the town.

Garry was asked to incorporate the wooden top and lid of the original font into the design. In doing so he retained the size and shape of the original font but added a 21st century look to the design.

The dedication of the font completes more than two years’ development work at Holy Trinity, which has included the provision of wheelchair access to the building, an accessible toilet on the premises and wheelchair spaces in the body of the church.

A small room with kitchen facilities has been created beneath the west end gallery to be used as a welcome and crèche space on Sundays. This room is available to community groups who could make use of a small meeting space during the week.
