A New Altar for Christmas

The Revd Canon Michael Baker

The Revd Canon Michael Baker Conducting a Wedding in St Mary Magdalene’s Church, Geddington

This year at Midnight Mass we will be using a new Altar which will be dedicated to the memory of the Revd Canon Michael Baker who was born and died in this Parish and served as a Priest in this diocese, the Diocese of Peterborough, for nearly 50 years.

The Altar was commissioned to draw upon and add to the beautiful architecture, symbolism and ambience of our ancient church building and we are extremely pleased with the end result. Many thanks to Gordon BIngley and The Traditional Carpentry Company for their wonderful work. Here are a few snaps.
