On Tuesday afternoon “operation pew” went ahead as planned and another step on the journey to creating permanent space for worship in Saint Anselm’s was taken. As you can see they are solidly built and very much in keeping with the building. We now need to give them a jolly good clean and polish.
The pews come with full size altar rails which means that the current rails can be moved to the side chapel where they are a perfect fit. Full size rails in the main church are much more practical and will ease congestion at the point of communion.
The tea break pictured was much deserved. The pews are heavy and took some shifting!
