An Invitation from Lime Ward : A rarely seen church interior and organ recital!

St Peter upon Cornhill

Lime Street Ward Club thought that you might like to know that St Peter upon Cornhill is going to be open to the Public (unfortunately a rare experience)  on Sat 11th August from 10.00am to 4.00pm – hopefully with the Old Organ being played throughout.

This event is being run by Lime Street Ward Club  see  for more about the Club, their church  and the “Hymnathon” to try to raise money for both the Organ Fund and their Master’s own chosen charity.

Any members and their friends would be more than welcome to come and visit the Church.
(Tea and coffee will be available)

Thanks to my friend Peter Twist for this information.

Special thanks to
