Closer to heaven?

The Bishop of Hereford, the Rt Rev Richard Frith, took his ministry to a whole new level when he visited Much Wenlock to celebrate the completion of a major project to re-roof the nave of Holy Trinity Church. The bishop had been persuaded to be hoisted up in a cherry picker to bless the new roof by team rector Rev Matthew Stafford. The cost of the work, which included interior redecoration, totalled over £200,000 and it was funded partly by the Shropshire Historic Churches Trust, a charity which raises cash to help the county’s churches meet their repair bills, as well as a number of other grant-giving bodies and personal bequests. A special service was conducted before this ceremony and the congregation enjoyed a picnic in the church following the blessing.
