On Friday 1st February Bayston Hill Methodist Centre was rededicated in a special service attended by around 120 people. It was preceeded by a celebratory church tea for over 50 church members who thoroughly enjoyed their first visit to the newly refurbished premises and the good food that the comprehensively equipped new kitchen could produce.
The Rededication Service was led by our own Superintendent Minister, Rev Derrick Lander and Rev John Howard, the District Chairman. We were honoured to have as our guest speaker Rev Mark Wakelin, the President of Methodist Conference. The Service was a wonderful occasion where the building was officially handed over to the Church by the builders and rededicated and where the church congregation committed themselves to the future of Bayston Hill Methodist Church with their best use of the new premises.
The Service was a wonderful celebratory event with a full church, singing that raised the roof ( not literally thankfully!) and an inspiring sermon from Rev Mark Wakelin to challenge and encourage the Church as it goes forward in God’s service from this new beginning.
