St John’s Church in Hale has 200 hymn books to give away. If you would like one just pop in and collect one – the church is open every day from 9:30am to 4:30pm.
The Reverend Lesley Crawley said, “At St John’s we realised that it was time we bought some new hymn books as the version we had was 30 years old and didn’t include the modern hymns we sing. We used to have extra hymns on bits of paper but it was becoming very frustrating. We can’t sell the old hymn books because they are so out of date, but if anyone would like one they are free to a good home!”
