A chapel full of singers gathering for practice this morning provided a fantastic background sound for the worship service in the back room.

The chapel was packed for the Friday evening concert ... and choirs popped up all round the town throughout the weekend:

It's not often a wayside pulpit gets 'tweeted' around the web. We should have had a collection box by the poster site, given the number of times it got snapped last weekend.

Tea, coffee, cakes,bacon butties and live coverage inside
Car-free streets of Hebden Bridge outside the chapel
All cleared for a quiet Taizé service in the evening

Hundreds of wooden doves, stamped with our website address, tied with string and ready to give out as gifts to visitors after the TdF flies through town in a couple of hours time.

Eco-evangelist George Monbiot chose to use the pulpit last night to deliver his compelling argument for 're-wilding' the countryside ... to a packed house in Hope Chapel.

I wonder what Rev John Fawcett would have thought. I'm sure he's have approved of returning our uplands and wild places to something nearer the richness of God's creation!

Monbiot on our side of the main road and Pantani at the Picture House on the other side of the road. The people of Hebden Bridge were certainly offered choice!
