Centenary Tour hits The Waterways Museum in Goole

16th June 2014

On Sunday, 15 June, the Diocesan Centenary celebrations continued at The Yorkshire Waterways Museum in Goole.  Over a hundred people attended the venue from the surrounding area. 

Bishop Steven led people in his first ever act of worship from the depths of a barge, with the service relayed to those sat outside, by the canal.  He introduced his new centenary crosier to the crowd, which was very interested to see the fine artistic detail up close.

A host of other activities were available for young and old alike.  There was a BBQ and other refreshments on offer throughout the afternoon.  Centenary Ale and bottles of special label Henderson's Relish were available to buy.  Everyone who attended took away a centenary bag containing a bible, bookmark and other bits and pieces.  Young people helped a local artist to create a painting of the venue, this picture will form one of several pictures created at each of the centenary events.

A puppet show, called Micah's Gang, stole the show as both adults and children watched and danced along to the act.

The venue itself was excellent with museum displays, an afternoon tea shop, Nature Trail and garden and boat trips around Goole docks.

The next Centenary event is at Beauchief Abbey on 22 June, 2-5 PM.
