On October 23 St Mary’s will welcome Bishop Michael Marshall to introduce his newly published book “The Life and Times of Edward King, Pastor, Bishop, and Saint”. The future Bishop King spent part of his adolescence here in Ellesmere as pupil and then helper to Revd John Day, the Vicar who was responsible for the extensive rebuilding of the church in the later 1840’s. The afternoon will begin at 2.30, include tea and conclude with Evensong at 5.30. All are welcome, we need to know approximate numbers so please let me know if you would like to come, it should be a very interesting afternoon placing the history of the town and church in a broader context.
