St Chad’s Church, Poulton

We also visited the Christian church of St Chad’s in Poulton. We met the Vicar who explained about all the different areas of the church-the pews, the altar, the pulpit. He explained how Jesus and God are worshipped and that Sunday is the holy day but people can visit the church whenever they like. We went upstairs to the rich pews, where families used to pay to be together on Sunday. We were allowed to go in the belfry and listen to the bells being rung. Mr Cowell’s family are on the signs! Mrs Oddy told us a story about how one of the gravestones belongs to a pirate!
