We held the final Chapel Anniversary in Bainbridge Chapel building; the current members were supported by friends from Askrigg (St Oswald's Church), Marsett and Aysgarth.
We were led in a joyful service by Andrew Fagg; he gave us a message of assurance for the future reminding us that, with Jesus, the best is still ahead of us. Our singing of traditional hymns was led by Diana who also blessed us with two solos.
There was the usual tea to follow and we admired the exhibition of the many pieces of work completed by the ecumenical craft group which met in the chapel.
We invite everyone to our final service in the chapel building on the 30th July. From then on we will meet in Sycamore Hall which will not only meet the needs of the residents but also provide us with a warm and welcoming place to worship and serve our community.
Although we will cease to use our building, we can still give a very positive "yes" to the opening words of 'Singing the Faith', hymn number 456:
"And are we yet alive,
and see each other's face?
Glory and praise to Jesus give
for his redeeming grace!"
