Meet up with friends and make new ones over coffee. 10.00 - 11.30 am every Wednesday in the Genner Room, St Marys Church, Leigh.
Tea and cake also available.
The font stands near the West door because baptism is our entrance or admission to the Church, the body founded by Christ himself. It used to be the practice to dip the child three times in the water, hence the size of the bowl.
The Font has been in use since the 15th century. Its present base, pedestal and cover are fairly modern.
