On Air Alex in The Afternoon Alex Brindley | 3:00pm - 5:30pm

Open-air service at Agneash

More than 200 years after a day-long open-air gathering on a remote hillside in Mowcop in Staffordshire led the way to a new religious movement, history will be repeated at Agneash above Laxey this afternoon.

An open air service has been organised at the top of the village, near Agneash Methodist Chapel, to replicate the gathering which paved the way for the Primitive Methodist movement.

It starts at 3pm and one of the preachers, Peter Murcott, believes it will be a special gathering.
