This week, I’m going to be talking about religious battles in Miles Platting!
Specifically, I’m going to be talking about the Rev. Sidney Faithorn Green, a clergyman who appointed to St John’s in Miles Platting in 1869 – but then imprisoned in 1880 for offences against the Public Worship Regulation Act of 1874. Green was a follower of the Oxford Movement and held services in Anglo-Catholic style – which led to him being admonised by the Bishop of Manchester.
In a bizarre twist, I’ll also be sharing the story of a fall-out in the Methodist community that happened around the same time!
In addition to these Miles Platting controversies, I’ll be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers. And there’ll be a bit of bonus content in the form of a couple of new theatre reviews as well!
