|Evensong in St Saviour’s Church, Tetbury at 6pm on Sunday 12th September.
This annual service, remembers Father Charles Fuge Lowder who died on 9th September 1880. He is commemorated by the church for his extraordinary dedication as a parish priest in London, working with the poorest and most destitute people in the city. This commitment to people on the margins became clear early on, when he served as a curate in Tetbury in the 1840s. It was a time when richer people paid a fee, known as “a pew rent”, for the use of a pew in St Marys’, so Fuge Lowder was instrumental in the building of St Saviour’s for the poorer people who could not afford this charge. It always feels a privilege to share this special service in memory of such a special man – in a church which I know is so special to people in Tetbury.
