A parish church can now provide its congregation and guests with hot drinks thanks to a new installation completed as part of its five-year restoration plan.

Haworth Parish Church has had a ‘servery’ fitted by Stanbury-based company Cole Joinery. The new timber structure has been designed to match the existing church interior.

Priest-in-charge at Haworth Parish Church, the Rev Peter Mayo-Smith, said: “We’re delighted with the new servery. Robert Cole has delivered a superb piece of kit that fits perfectly into its surroundings within the church.

“Until now, we have struggled to provide our congregation and visitors with a proper hot drink, and this facility will enable us to do far more, especially when we stage concerts and special events within the church.”

Mr Mayo-Smith officially dedicated the new facility as part of Haworth Parish Church’s fabric at a morning service on April 27.
