AT THE heart of the village of Wroot is its Methodist Chapel which first opened in 1870.
Services are led by Superintendent Minister, the Reverend David Leese, and take place every Sunday at 9.30am, except on the fourth Sunday in the month when a combined service is held with the congregation at St Pancras Anglican Church at 9am.
The congregation from St Pancras also attend the Methodist Chapel for a combined service on the second Sunday of every month.
Chapel spokesman Parry Jenkins said: “The chapel celebrates its anniversary on Sunday April 29. We welcome back Rev Barbara Walls who was the chapel minister from 2000-2005.”
The anniversary service will commence at 3pm after which there will be light refreshments.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
On the last Thursday of each month, until November, chapel lunches are held in the newly refurbished village hall from noon onwards.
Mr Jenkins said: “The popular meal consists of delicious steak pie – prepared and cooked by our friendly butcher in Misterton, vegetables, homemade puddings, tea or coffee – all for just £4.
“Whilst we thoroughly enjoy this social occasion it is our major fundraising event which helps us to keep our beautiful, historic chapel in good repair.”
