Final services at Talbot Lane Methodist Church this Sunday

A HISTORIC church will hold its last two services this weekend.

Talbot Lane Methodist Church in the town centre will host its final communion service at 10.45am on Sunday and a district service at 4pm — to be led by district chairman Rev Gill Newton — will mark the formal closure.

Publicity officer Patricia Gorrell said everyone was welcome to attend the last services at the church, which has been a place of worship for 258 years.

The church is up for sale for £255,000 and the Advertiser reported last week that literacy charity Grimm & Co wants to buy and redevelop into a larger base with more space for story workshops, a café and a bookshop.
