Photo-a-Day (Monday, 23rd March, 2015)
Leave your money on collection plate on way out; praise the Lord!
How times change. When that church was built people were kept fit by their jobs, housework and by walking everywhere.
"Legs, Bums and Tums" and "Zumba Classes" may be a long way from the original use of this building, but I would rather see it in use than derelict and crumbling.
This is a very nice building and as Irene says, better that it is being used than derelict. Don't like all the signs though.
This is a terrible indictment on the demise of Christianity in this country. I was in Rome recently and all the churches big and small are well patronised by the locals. It would be sacrilege for them to be other than a place of worship!
I agree with Irene best have some sort of use for 'em and those who lease them maintain them!
I pass this building often and find it very attractive. It is better that disused places of worship are used for something rather then be demolished.
Is this the Bethel Methodist Church?
No the Bethel is in Victoria Street.
I should have added that this photo is taken from Grosvenor Street into Albert Street.
Aubrey was that you stood at the back of me.
You will never know Mick.
this was my husbands great grandads church in 1900's . albert atherton.
Old buildings are so ornate, the men who built it must have been so proud of their work. They don't build them like this now, more is the pity.
