St John's Church Celebrates Black Country Day With Look Back To World War One Heritage

'All Our Yesterdays' will see the church invite people to learn about the church’s heritage and record their own individual memories.

The building, on St John’s Road, has joined with its neighbours in the Elton Centre and Stourbridge Fire Station and will be open between 12pm and 4pm.

With a 150-year history in the town, St John’s has long been a place of worship and community gathering for people in Stourbridge and surrounding areas. As the centenary of the Battle of the Somme is commemorated across the country, St John’s will exhibit a collection of photographs of local men who fought in the first World War and show visitors the WW1 commemorative plaques, monuments and stained glass windows within the church.

Visitors will also be invited to share their memories and connections with St John’s, over generations. 'All Our Yesterdays' will take place at St John’s United Reformed Church, St John’s Road, Stourbridge  on Thursday July 14th 2016 from 12pm to 4pm.
