Due to falling congregation numbers and the need for significant repairs to the building, the future of St. John’s Church in Newsome village is being considered by church authorities.
The church has been central to community life in Newsome for many years. The building itself, which opened in 1872, is also an important part of the character of the village. Church authorities are now welcoming new ideas about how the building could be used in the future.
There will be a public meeting on Thursday 2nd April 2020 from 7pm at St. John’s Church, Jackroyd Lane, Newsome. The church would like as many people as possible to attend and share their views and ideas.
New sources of funding will be needed if we are to keep the church at the centre of Newsome. There have been lots of ideas shared already, but we also need people and organisations who can help implement some of these ideas and secure funding.
Please come along if you can help, or if you’d like to find out more.
