Holt Methodist church celebrates 150 years

Holt Methodist 362 AR2013: Holt Methodists will be enjoying a landmark anniversary this month with a range of events at the church to celebrate 150 years in the town.

 
The imposing Victorian church, on the junction of High Street and Norwich Road, was designed by Norfolk architect Thomas Jeckyll and was opened on Good Friday, April 3, 1863. Refurbishments took place in 1982, when toilets were installed, and in 1988, when a new community hall was built.
 
The church is known as a friendly church, and renowned for the warm welcome extended to visitors, who travel from far and wide to worship there.
 
Celebrations to mark the landmark year will take place in the church between Tuesday, April 23 and Sunday, April 28. Events include a flower festival between 10am and 4pm daily; an exhibition by Holt Photographic Society; a quiz night on Tuesday, April 23 between 7.30pm and 9.30pm; an informal concert on Saturday, April 27; and a service on Sunday, April 28 at 11am led by the Rev Graham Thompson.
 
The minister is the Rev Jenny Pathmarajah, who will be ordained at the Methodist Church's annual conference, held in London, with a service at Surbiton Hill Methodist Church.
