I last visited Todmorden Church decades ago and it was in a pretty sorry state then…

… heavily vandalised and with no electricity, it had an air of dilapidation about it. So it was good to return in the company of some colleagues to see the church now. Jo James, Bob Janis-Dillon, Jim Corrigall, David Steers, Phil Waldron visited the church on 2nd November 2017. Read the article by Rev’d David Steers here
