philpott on sunday

This is where I sit every Sunday morning. I often wonder about the people who sat in this spot week after week in the years before – there must have been lots of them because the church has been here for over 100-years.

In the early days of this church it was hard to get a seat inside. Even with 1600 seats there was not enough space for everyone so to accommodate the extra people they broadcast the service to Loew’s Capital Theatre which used to seat 2500, but even then some people could not get in.

Nowadays it can still be hard to find a seat but there is room for everyone - actually that is a part of the church philosophy that anyone can come just as they are - that is why I come and sit here.
