Barnoldswick's Gospel Mission Church moves into former potato warehouse
8:00am Saturday 26th October 2013 in News
The Gospel Mission Church in Barnoldswick has relocated to a newly renovated building on Wellhouse Road.
The church, led by pastor Paul Standley, had been based at premises in the Valley Gardens, but, because of the building’s poor condition, services have been at the town’s Civic Hall for the past eight years.
“The old RAF barracks building served us well for over 50 years,” said Mr Standley. “But it was becoming unserviceable and we decided not to re-develop the site.”
As a result, the church bought a former potato warehouse building on Wellhouse Road five years ago and has been renovating it ever since.
“We’ve done it all virtually by ourselves,” said Mr Standley, who credited church member Roy Lund, of Barnoldswick, for overseeing the vast majority of the work.
The Gospel Mission Church, which has been in Barnoldswick since 1931, will now hold an open day for the community to introduce them to the new building.
It will take place from 10am to 4pm next Saturday, November 2, followed by a service at 7pm, led by the Rev Rob Harris, who recently retired as lead minister at Skipton Baptist Church.
