OuseFest: The Fenland Ark: St Withburga’s The Floating Church Talk
July 23, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In 1904, the Fenland Ark travelled up the Old Bedford River serving the settlements of Welches Dam, Purls Bridge and The Colony. Using pictures and extracts from the diaries of Rev. George Broke, Kirsten Bennett will tell the story of how a Floating Church was conceived as a unique method of taking the Church to the people of isolation Fenland communities.
Free refreshments will be served and copies of the book by John Bennett will be available to purchase.
