One hundred people packed the small chapel at Broomhill to celebrate the work and witness of Methodists from this place for 130 years. The road, better suited to horse-drawn transport, became blocked as so many cars tried to find somewhere to park.

Broomhill members chose the hymns for the afternoon, and we had a rousing time of worship, singing 9 hymns in total. Different local people took part in a liturgy around the font, the pulpit, the door, the aisle, the pews, the organ and the communion table, giving thanks for the many times that significant events in people's lives have been marked at this place.

The minister, Revd Gwyneth Owen, reminded the congregation of how important it is to remember its links with this church and with the God who has been faithfully worshipped and served here. She encouraged people to be thankful for members of the congregation, preachers and ministers who have played such a significant part in their lives over the years. She invited people to look more broadly at today's society and recognize how different are today's challenges from those in the 19th century when the chapel was built. She is confident that God has not finished with us yet, and it remains important to communicate to our communities the love of God shown in Jesus Christ. We just need to embrace new ways of doing this.

Broomhill and Colehill congregations joined together over 18 months ago, forming one church that worshipped alternately at Broomhill and Colehill. Now, the congregation will worship each week at Colehill Methodist Church on Lonnen Road. Do look at its page on this website and find out what goes on.

"We'll praise him for all that is past
And trust him for all that's to come."
