An open day for young and old is being held at St Michael and All Angels Church in Liverpool Old Road, Much Hoole on Saturday, March 29.

Mike Redshaw, who sits on the church committee, said: “It’s quite an usual thing for a church to do.

“Between 2.30pm and 5.30pm on that day, anyone from the parish can come in, meet people from the church and see if they are interested in what we have to offer.

“It’s not going to be preachy, it’s just a chance to show what we have and what we do.”

On the day there will be representatives from the men’s fellowship on hand as well as the Scouts, members of the flower group, a historian with pictures of the church, and Vicar Rev Derek Baines will also be available.

Visitors also have the opportunity to learn about astronomer Jeremiah Horrocks, a curate at the church, who first observed the Transit of Venus in Much Hoole in 1639.
