Church of the Nazarene

Shadows across the lawn of the Church of the Nazarene on Stamford Street, Ashton under Lyne.

Ashton Church of the Nazarene started out as The Ashton Evangelical Mission in 1865 and later The Old Cross Mission. It moved to its present location in 1981.

This photo features the coffee lounge rather than the church itself. It is open Thursdays and Fridays from 10am till 3pm and I can attest to the tastiness of their toasted teacakes.

More information can be found on the church website

A contribution to Shadow Shot Sunday and Inspired Sundays.


  1. Such a pretty setting for a church. I would think their teacakes would be wonderful. Nice shadows.

  2. hmmmm... E-mail ol' «Louis» one of those teacakes, please!

    «Louis» made another trek north and got this Episcopal (Anglican) church in the Victorian village of Ferndale, California.

  3. looks like a very peaceful setting. ( :
