How to 'read' the English Country ChurchLecturer: Rev'd Dr Nicholas Henderson
Owing to circumstances beyond our control, the lecture for February is not as printed on the programme (Coventry Cathedral). Our speaker will be the Rev'd Dr Nicholas Henderson, who has lectured widely on international, architectural and historical issues, and has a particular interest in the period of the English Reformation.
His lecture 'How to 'read' the English Country Church' will take us on a fascinating journey through the unravelling of English history from the pre-Christian period to the Tudors before our eyes. His talk will act as a guide to help us look at the architecture, outside and inside, church furniture, those mysterious nooks and crannies, high and low, and how and why our country churches came to look this way.
Come along and discover more about our beloved country churches on Thursday 14th February at the Memorial Centre, Whitefield Road. Coffee is served from 10am; the lecture begins at 10.30am. Visitors are most welcome (£6).
