The newly refurbished Heptonstall Methodist Chapel is hosting a concert by two local choirs, the Three Valleys Gospel Choir and Zarebi, on Saturday 24 March.
Tickets are £7 or £5 concessions (including under-26s) and are available from Tony’s Post Office.
A sponsored walk and tea will be held on Saturday, 6 June 2015, starting at 1.15pm. The annual Heptonstall Methodists walk finishes with a tea at the Sunday School.
The walkers’ reward
This year, the walk falls on the same day as the first sponsored walk, so we would like to invite anyone with pictures or memories of the walks to share them at a display and on our website. If you have any pictures, please get in touch with Amy Binns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A new exhibition celebrating the 250th anniversary of the Heptonstall Methodist chapel is now on show in the chapel off Northgate, which is open every day.
It includes Victorian photographs of the chapel and its celebrations, as well as pictures from the many popular pantomimes held in the Sunday School until the 1990s.
A new website featuring more pictures and videos has also been launched as part of the celebrations. If you have more pictures or memories you would like to contribute, please get in touch through the website.
If you want to prepare your baby for stardom, a leading role is available in the Heptonstall Methodists’ traditional nativity service.
A baby is needed to play the part of Baby Jesus on Sunday 23 December at 10.45am. Willing candidates can be held by Mary or can chill out in their car seat next to the manger, depending on the parents’ preference.
Any other children who would like to join in as angels, shepherds etc are very welcome to attend.
Rehearsals are being held at 10am on Saturday 15 December and Saturday 22 December at the Octagonal Chapel. Anyone interested can contact Margaret on 01422 842550 or just turn up to a rehearsal.
