The programme spanned the ages and included Sousa’s King Cotton as a reminder of the heritage of Low Moor through the mill where cotton was woven. Tea and amazing cakes were provided and the afternoon was thoroughly enjoyed by an appreciative audience.

The following day, the Bishop of Blackburn, Julian Henderson came as the first guest preacher of the year. He gave thanks to God on behalf of the Diocese for 150 years of mission and ministry by those who have worshipped at St Paul’s and prayed for God's blessing on the work going on at present . After the service, the congregation had the opportunity to talk to the Bishop over brunch.
