#Bedale & District Methodist Church — Redevelopment Celebrations.

Some words from those who were there...


If anyone had any doubts about Redeveloping the Methodist Church here in Bedale I hope this last weekend took away their fears. If you came and shared with us, thank you. We heard so many Wows, Isn't this lovely. What a wonderful transformation & May God Bless You in All You Do. People with mobility problems or in wheelchairs can now enter our Church with ease we are welcoming place for everyone. Our prayer for the future is we will be a people of welcome, worship and witness to the way of faith, hope and love.

It was a very exciting day with lots of visitors most of which were amazed by the difference in the building, using the wow as they entered each area of the building, commenting on the size the windows , how useable the different spaces will be and the how accessible the building is. It was wonderful to see the place packed for the opening service and the whole experience brought tears to my eyes.

What an amazing weekend, so many people, so many "wow"s, such an amazing atmosphere — and all for one amazing God! Come let us worship and adore him, together.
