St Johns Church, St Georges Road, Hessle Road 2015, 2016

21 Mar 2017 | Categories: Some example of our support in recent years | Posted by: tonyh

St Johns Church holds good memories for me. It was my Mothers Church and I became both a Choir Boy and a Scout. In recent years I have renewed my connection with the church, at a time when it is being saved and restored, and when so many churches in similar circumstances are closing. It now remains the only Cof E Church on the Western outskirts of Hull. It is a tribute to the Reverend Tony Cotson, that his drive and initiative has restored the Church and its future.

It is also the Fishermen’s Church and holds many memorable items of Hulls Fishing past.

It has been a pleasure to be of help. Firstly in 2015 we have funded the Cafe/ Bar and in 2016 we have paid for the installation of 6 stained glass windows, rescued from the now defunct St Mathews.

Again in 2016 we also helped sponsor the new venture of a children and family worker.

After much delay and following the installation of the six windows Janet and I attended the dedication ceremony, by the lady Bishop of Hull, on the 20th of May 2018
