What if …

In eight days’ time, St Peter’s Church and Bishop Martin CE Primary School will open their doors to welcome the world to Woolton village as we prepare to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the day that John Lennon and Paul McCartney met!

But what if that meeting had never taken place?  What if there had been no Beatles?

In his excellent book, Conversations with McCartney (London: Hodder & Stoughton, 2015), journalist and author Paul Du Noyer pondered that very question and wrote about a world in which the butterfly had never “flapped its wings” and the “distant mountain” had not “tumbled over.”

As custodians of the legacy of that “fateful” day, we at St Peter’s Church found Paul’s ideas  intriguing and thought-provoking, and we are indebted to Paul for allowing us to share them with you!

Read, enjoy … and imagine!
