175th Anniversary Celebrations
This year marks the 175th Anniversary of the Consecration of the “new church” of St. Peter and St. Paul, Albury by Bishop Sumner of Winchester which was held on 19 October 1842.
Get into the spirit and join in!!
Sunday 8 October
We will start the event commemorating the anniversary with a special service when the Bishop of Guildford will lead the service.
Service starts at 10.30 am (please be seated by 10.15 am) If you haven’t already RSVP’d, you can send an email:
This is then followed by a Victorian Fete outside the Church on Malcolm’s Field from 12 – 3 pm. There will be Victorian themed stalls to entertain you, a BBQ, bar and “afternoon tea” to feed and water you as well as various competitions ranging from a photo competition, a lego/building bricks competition for the younger ones, a Victorian Bake-off and our own “Antique Road Show” – let’s see who can come up with an item with an origin as close as possible to 1842!

Weekend of 14-15 October
Display of the history of Albury and the Church incl tours at 2.30 pm on both days. In addition, the Bell Ringers will provide demonstrations and a chance to have a go yourself on the Saturday from 12 – 4 pm.
Thursday 19 October
An evening of music in “Albury Abbey”. We’re looking for budding and established musicians, existing groups or one-off groups
to perform during this evening of music. It can be any type of music (and any type of quality 😉). The idea is to get the whole
community together, ideally appropriately dressed for “Albury Abbey”, to celebrate on the day of the consecration of
St Peter and St Paul’s 175 years later. The evening will start at 7 pm. Tickets will be available from the Post Office from mid-September.
