The Walk to Church

This post is for people that like lots of photos.

It is fun being just a 10 minute walk to church. Well, on the nice, sunny, warm days it has been fun. Don't ask us about the cold and rainy days.

We head out our road. It isn't long and we turn left and head down the road. See the blue sky with white clouds. This is one of the nice days that we enjoy the walk. Yes, cars park like that with two wheels on the pavement. The roads are narrow and that makes it just a bit wider.

As we walk along the road, we look at the gates and gardens. We decided this morning that this looked like a nice gate.

We continue walking down the road. It is Sunday morning so it is quiet. The bus to the centre city goes down this street. Miss K likes to ride the bus. She is a city girl.

Some pretty flowers along the way.

 We got to the end of road where there is a Give Way sign. If you turn to the right, there is the Co-operative Food Store. We are in there at least once a day. We are going to turn left. You can see the green hills in the distance.

Here is another view of the green fields. Some of those fields have sheep. This is the edge of the Peak District where there are lots of walking trails.

We turn left and walk just a short distance. As the road bends to the right, we take the little alley that goes along side the church.

The sky was blue with lots of white clouds. The trees were so green.

There were some statues along the way. The kids love to climb on pillars. It is nice that there is one for each of them.

We walk up this road. It is a nice quiet road. There are a few houses on the right side and on the left side is the wall along the church gardens.

We can look back and see the green hills. Some times I can't believe how close we life to the country.

We are getting close to church. You can see the steeple peeking above the wall.

There is just a bit more of the steeple and you can see the blue sky and the white clouds.

Here is the gate leading to the ministry centre. There are lots of things that happen there each week. Miss K goes to Kids club and Bob goes to Youth Group. There is an outreach to international students and a number of other things.

We walk around the pathway and we are in the church building. There are two services a 9:30 and an 11:00. We usually go to the 11:00 service. We made it though this morning not early enough for coffee and tea.

Then we walk home retracing our steps with a quick stop at The Co-Operative Food.
